This pot-stirring oral history reads like a backstory of how musical lightning comes to be. All of the surviving band members get to have their say. --Rolling Stone Alan has a way with narrative that just draws you in without using the single-level storyline used by other writers who have attempted telling the Allman Brothers Band's story. He gets right to the hows and whys that give his narrative real substance. Enjoy and become enlightened. --Butch Trucks, the Allman Brothers Band (From the Foreword)No journalist knows the ins and outs of the Allman Brothers Band better than Alan Paul. --Warren Haynes, the Allman Brothers Band I learned so much reading One Way Out. If you want to know the real deal, read Alan Paul. --Oteil Burbridge, the Allman Brothers Band Allman Brothers, unvarnished . . . [Alan Paul]'s vast trove of interviews allows the band to tell its own story. --Atlanta Journal Constitution. Alan Paul is one of America's foremost experts on the Allman Brothers Band. For the past twenty years, he has written informative, comprehensive articles on the band, and he truly understands the essence of their significance. It's great to see him release this chronicle. --E.J. Devokaitis, Curator / Archivist, Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House. Alan Paul's One Way Out is a brilliantly detailed all-access pass to the Allman Brothers Band. Using his numerous personal interviews with the band members themselves--both past and present--as well as an almost endless entourage of friends, family members, roadies, managers, promoters, booking agents, record label executives, and fellow musicians, Alan Paul has successfully created the definitive ABB biography. Randy Poe, author of Skydog: The Duane Allman Story. One Way Out is perhaps the most in-depth look at one of America's most beloved, but thoroughly dysfunctional ensembles. Engrossing reading . . .

Inevitably in the early part of the story it is the Duane Allman one of the greatest musicians to pick up a guitar who dominates the book. He was already a brilliant session man in his early 20s. In 1969 the classic Allmans line up was formed Duane and Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny Johanson. By the time of their third album 1971's legendary "Live at Fillmore East" captured the band in New York as arguably the best live rock act in the world with Duane Allman and Betts leading the guitar frontal assault. The $1,250 dollars they earned per show saw them triangulate that signature sound which Paul describes "as a rock n roll band playing blues in the jazz vernacular...Read more ›
While I knew a lot about the years up to 1992 it is the subsequent period where this book excels.So you hear about Dickey and Woodys confrontation including the infamous knife incident, Greggs equivocation,how Warren tried to hold everything together until with Woody he tired of it all and left to pursue his Govt Mule project.You hear about how Warrens replacement the great Jack Pearson had to leave because of tinnitis"Jack said he was finding it too loud I said I dont know how long I can stand it but I aint turning down" Dickey Betts.
I coud go on but believe me there is something for everyone and you will read and re read this one.
This book tells the story of the Allman Brothers from the start, right up to the present. It is an oral history, based on interviews with band members, management and crew members. It has been seamlessly put together by Alan Paul, and reads very smoothly. It probably tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the Allmans, and will be of great interest to fans of the band. And, of course, the emphasis is always on the music!
It is bang up to date and contains many previously unseen photos.
A very good read.
