    Rocker Gregg Allman –who was once married to Cher- recently underwent a liver transplant operation at the Mayo Clinic in Florida. He had been on a waiting list for a new organ and is now looking forward to a speedy recovery. The liver transplant is part of his continued recovery from Hepatitis C.

    "I feel pretty good, considering everything that's happened," said Allman, who co-founded the Allman Brothers Band in 1969, in an officially released statement. "Everybody involved here, my doctors and nurses in the hospital and all the Allman Brothers fans, they've just all been great." The surgery took place on Wednesday morning after Allman was notified that an appropriate liver had been donated. When organs become available, doctors have to act fast.

    "All I can really say is 'thanks,'" the singer said with gratitude. We wish Allman the fastest and easiest recovery possible!

    The transplant comes as a result of the Mr. Allman's previous battle with Hepatitis C, a liver disease. In late 2007, Allman began a series of treatments for his Hepatitis C, but chronic damage of his liver led to doctors recommending a transplant. "I changed my ways years ago," Allman said. "But we can't turn back time. Every day is a gift, and I can't wait to get back on the road making music with my friends." We can't wait, either, Greg. Get better, man! We need you healthy and making music.
