The Allman Brothers Band performs for charity next month.  The rockers are staging a benefit called “Tune In To Hep C Presents The Allman Brothers Band.” The concert’s scheduled for July 27th at New York’s Beacon Theatre.

Frontman Gregg Allman is no stranger to the disease and its effects.  Gregg says he first contracted Hepatitis C while getting a tattoo at age 20.  He adds that the condition “laid dormant” for years, but resurfaced at age 50 due to his heavy drinking.  Gregg’s story has a healthy ending.  The rocker underwent a successful liver transplant in June of last year.  Throughout his ordeal, Allman says the idea of dying never crossed his mind.  He remembers that he was just focused on the idea that he had “stuff to do.”
