A little bit country, a little bit rock n' roll, and a ton of hair, Cher and Gregg Allman's marriage on June 30, 1975, was the stuff of rock royalty legend.
While Gregg's drug and alcohol addictions ultimately doomed the union by 1979, it's pretty apparent from these photos that the couple were genuinely into each other. Even after their divorce, Cher told People Magazine in a 1979 article, "... nobody ever made me feel as happy as Gregory did. God, he’s wonderful. I don’t understand why he can’t see it." (Allman, sadly, died in 2017.)
Here's a look back at the couple that seem to embody the '70s; wild, passionate, and resplendent in leather and velvet.
