One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Best seller!
 
One Way Out is the powerful biography of The Allman Brothers Band, an oral history written with the bands 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.

Review:

"Music writer Paul catches up with the legendary band in this entertaining, compulsively readable oral history of the Allman Brothers. Through interviews with every member of the band except Duane Allman and original bassist Berry Oakley, their friends and music associates, as well as in sidebars about various aspects of the band's history and a 'highly opinionated' discography, Paul traces the ups and downs of the band and its music from Duane's and Gregg's early bands in Jacksonville, Fla., the earliest days of the Allman Brothers as they developed their signature sound with the original members of the band, Duane's side projects with Derek and the Dominoes and Muscle Shoals, through the deaths of Duane and Berry in the early '70s to the various incarnations of the Allman Brothers over the past 20 years. In many ways, Duane's ghost haunts the book. As Gregg recalls of his brother: 'He was always up to something... he either had his head in a book, his arm around a woman, or his arm around a guitar and it was singing to him.' According to original drummer Jaimoe Johnson: 'After Duane died, a lot changed. Everyone wanted to be Duane, but no one knew how to do shit except play music.' On the mystique and power of the Allman Brothers' music, Dickey Betts reflects: 'We seemed to have the longevity of an elephant.'" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
