About The Book:
If you are from the South, love Southern Rock music, and are a "baby boomer," then you know and love those boys from Florida - The Allman Brothers Band. Their music is legendary, their lives are legendary and now the tales of everything we've always "heard of" are related in a brilliant biography, "One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band," by Alan Paul.
Paul has gathered interviews with all the players, all the families and friends, and all the hangers-on to make this book one of the most fascinating collections of memories I've had the pleasure to read.
There is pretty much no stone left unturned in this intimate and uniquely presented book. Paul lays out the story of the Allman brothers, Duane and Greg, and their band mates with blended interviews with everyone who was around the band at it's start and at it's current state.
Fans of the band will eat this book up. Fans of Southern rock music will love it as well. And fans of genuine, from-the-heart music will appreciate it for it's revelations and the respect with which it was compiled.
