Retro Photos That Bring Us Back To The Good Old Days


Tumultuous pair, Cher and Gregg Allman in 1977.

The glorious days of the groovy era were filled with some of the most beloved icons of all time but there are two sides to every coin. It’s easy to forget there are real people under all that glitz and glamour. Some of them came from poverty and some spent their entire youth working up on the screen instead of out being young. But escapism is what entertainment is all about. Not just for the audience but for the entertainer as well. Come escape and reminisce in this little trove of Hollywood history.

These two were all drama from the start. When pop diva Cher and rocker Gregg Allman first met in January 1975, Cher was in the midst of a divorce and custody battle with Sonny Bono, and Allman was battling addiction. Not a great recipe for stable relationship, but hey, they were smitten with each other and gave it a shot.

According to Allman’s memoir, their first date was the worst… it ended with him shooting up and passing out.But their second date was a bit better, according to Allman they drank and danced the night away at a disco club and "When we got back to her place, she took me out to her rose garden, and all the roses were just starting to bloom…We made some serious love!" As soon as her divorce from Bono was final, she jumped right into a marriage with Allman. Of course, his addiction led to constant fighting and eventual divorce.
