On October 1, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter celebrated his 96th birthday. In celebration, here’s Jimmy expressing his thanks to The Allman Brothers for their role in helping him become president.
“Gregg Allman was a very close friend of mine. If it hadn’t been for Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers I never would have been president. Bill Walden got the Allman Brothers to raise money for me. So they would have a concert in Pennsylvania or New York or New Hampshire and charge 15 dollars but the 15 dollars didn’t go to them the 15 dollars went to my campaign fund.”
