NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Gregg Allman will begin a book tour next week after passing heart tests at The Mayo Clinic.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member had delayed the tour after experiencing arrhythmia following recent hernia surgery related to his 2010 liver transplant. Publicists say Allman underwent tests at the Jacksonville, Fla., clinic last Friday and was cleared.

His new memoir, "My Cross to Bear," came out Tuesday.

The 62-year-old keyboard player and singer will start the tour May 8 in Atlanta. Stops include Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City.

Allman was a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. In the new memoir he chronicles the band's rise to fame, his own personal struggles with drugs and women and his brother Duane's death.
