Sweet Melissa was Greg Allman's motorcycle. In order to settle his nerves, he would drive it around Macon, GA when he got home. Greg died on Sweet Melissa one morning on a lightly traveled downtown Macon street. It was just a freak accident. The above story is not true.Gregg Allman is alive and well and still performing tour dates. Gregg was writing this song in 1967 at a Florida hotel and couldn't come up with a name for the song. One night at a grocery store he heard a woman calling her daughter and her name was Melissa and that is where he got the name in the song and the title.
