One way out, the inside history of the Allman Brothers Band, Alan Paul - (hbk.)

An oral history written with the Allman Brothers Band's participation, filled with original interviews and personal correspondence. This is the most in-depth look ever at an American institution, telling how the band helped redefine rock and roll. Alan Paul has written about The Allman Brothers Band for 25 years, 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. 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.--From publisher description
