Gregg Allman is set to be a ramblin' man once more.

Following heart tests at the Mayo Clinic, the legendary rocker has been given the all-clear from doctors to embark on his scheduled book tour.

The Associated Press reports that Allman, 62, had initially postponed his speaking engagements after a number of health scares; most recently, the "Statesboro Blues" musician experienced arrhythmia following hernia surgery, which he underwent to address issues relating to a 2010 liver transplant.

The singer will kick off the nationwide tour in Atlanta May 8. His memoir "My Cross to Bear"--which details his experience as a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, as well as his lifelong struggle with substance abuse--was released on Tuesday.
