One Way Out: An Oral History of The Allman Brothers Band

Award-winning journalist Alan Paul will self-publish an oral history of The Allman Brothers Band. One Way Out: An Oral History of the Allman Brothers Band is culled from 20 years of interviews Paul conducted between 1989-2009, including what is described as “the most in-depth look at the acrimonious 2000 parting with founding guitarist Dickey Betts.” The oral history includes many never-before-published interviews with band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe, Butch Trucks, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, Allen Woody, Jack Pearson, Chuck Leavell and Jimmy Herring, as well as plus Eric Clapton, Tom Dowd, Phil Walden, Billy Gibbons, Dr. John, Scott Boyer, Buddy Guy and others.

A complete history of The Allman Brothers Band, One Way Out: An Oral History of the Allman Brothers Band also looks at the band’s early years, Duane Allman’s continued impact on the group and the Brothers’ 40th anniversary tour.

Thank you. The book is available, but a new and improved second edition should be ready to go by Friday, with expanded coverage of the 90s band, and a discography featuring my ratings of over 50 albums by the ABB, Mule, Derek Trucks Band and more.

Lookin’ forward to this book Alan Paul is a good writer and if you haven’t read it, read his book called “Big In China” if you like the blues and travel books it will be right up your alley. I highly recomend it.

This looks good.
Also check out this site for some Allman’s journey — specifically from Duane’s perspective.
