A New York Times Best seller!

One Way Out is the powerful biography of The Allman Brothers Band, an oral history written with the band's participation and filled with original, never-before-published interviews as well as personal letters and correspondence. This is the most in-depth look at a legendary American rock band that has meant so much to so many for so long.

For twenty-five years, Alan Paul has covered and written about The Allman Brothers Band, conducting hundreds of interviews, riding the buses with them, attending rehearsals and countless shows. He has interviewed every living band member for this book as well as managers, roadies, and contemporaries, including: Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe, Butch Trucks, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, the late Allen Woody, Jimmy Herring, Eric Clapton, Bob Weir, and many others.
Tracking the band's career from their 1969 formation to today, One Way Out is filled with musical and cultural insights, riveting tales of sometimes violent personality conflicts and betrayals, drug and alcohol use, murder allegations and exoneration, tragic early deaths, road stories, and much more, including the most in-depth look at the acrimonious 2000 parting with founding guitarist Dickey Betts and behind-the-scenes information on the recording of At Fillmore East, Layla, Eat A Peach, Brothers and Sisters, and other classic albums.

Gregg allman, costar of Rush, the great film about drugs and undercover cops, also starring Jennifer Jason leigh, Jason Patrick, and scored by eric Clapton, died last week. R.I.P. I hope he was able to see Cher's performance at the award show, the mtv one, a couple of weeks ago.

One musical genius in this band and his name was Duane Allman. I would highly suggest reading Randy Poe's bio of Duane called, "Skydog, The Duane Allman Story".

This is a very good book and provides a different perspective on one of the all time great American R & R bands.
