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 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.

Boasting a career over four decades in length, the Allman Brothers Band has weathered both triumph as well as tragedy; the most recent being the 2017 passing of singer/keyboardist, Gregg Allman. As one would expect from such a long history, there are many stories to be told in One Way Out. However, what sets Paul's authorial work apart with this book is the nature in which it is given to the reader. The Allman Brothers Band has had numerous band members, crew, & other associates over the years, & it appears as though all parties who survived this maelstrom of a musical act are interviewed & featured here. In fact, one of the most enjoyable parts of the stories being relayed is seeing just how different some memories are from the different points of view.

Whether you're a long-time fan of ABB, or on the hunt for an immersive, almost unbelievable history of one of the great American rock bands, this is definitely a book to read.
