One Way Out Alan Paul read online review & book description:

A New York Times Best seller!

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 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.

    A very enjoyable read. I especially appreciated the fact that the author allowed for multiple points of view on any given subject.

    Good read, particularly for the long time fan who is also a musician. Lots of interesting things about how Duane instinctively constructed his perfect band, how the signature harmony guitar lines were developed, the massive void left by his death, and the musically logical bend toward country as Dickie Betts asserted himself. Then the tale is an all too common one of substance abuse and band politics. It's truly remarkable they've held together so long. The author does a good job of staying out of the way, letting the protagonists tell the story.
