  2. I have never listened to the Allman Brothers, having come of age musically in the early 90s with the Seattle scene, but I often enjoy music biographies, and found this one to be a very informative and enjoyable read.I was aware that tragedy had surrounded the band over the years, and also knew that Almost Famous , the Cameron Crowe film, was based on his experiences touring as a journalist with the Allman Brothers, but the extent to which death and demons associated with drug and alcohol abuse h [...]


  3. First, a personal anecdote On 3 20 14, on the eve of the release of Alan Paul s masterful oral biography of the Allman Brothers Band, One Way Out, I attended a book signing and interview at NYC s 82nd St Barnes Noble just eight blocks north of the band s home away from home, the Beacon Theatre , with both the author and ABB drummer co founder Jaimoe in attendance After a fascinating talk by the two, I waited in line to get my book signed, and in short order was standing in front of Jaimoe himsel [...]


  4. This is a First Reads, Thank You Mr Paul has gathered every surviving member of the band, past and present, to give an honest, raw account of the band, each other, the music, what was, and what happened Duane Allman s demons come into account, the drugs, the fame, the brilliance that died too soon The darkness that fell over them and yet through it they continued, they made music I love how this is told and weaved the stories from different perspectives at the same time making a whole picture, d [...]


  5. I am a long time fan of the Allman Brothers Band Their music has appealed to me since late in high school when I began to lose interest in harder rock, metal, and pop music and became interested in music like theirs and Eric Clapton s The emotion and the varied influences drew me in and with the Allman Brothers Band, so did the sound It was blues, jazz, rock, and country all stewed together Drums crashing like waves on a beach, a rhythm section that was rolling and artistic instead of just keep [...]


  6. If you are an electric guitar player and you are NOT an Allman Brothers Band fan then you really aren t a guitar player.This is the Allman Brothers Band book that i ve been waiting over 25 years for ever since Warren Haynes made the Pattern Disruptive album with Dickie Betts back in 1989 when I bought it This book was so exciting I didn t even need a bookmark Everytime I picked it up I knew exactly where i had left off the time before I m a Warren Haynes fan, so those are the stories I most want [...]


  7. If you dig the Allman Brothers, this is a must If you don t, well, what s the point Most or all of the book is culled from interviews with the band members or folks that were there when it all went down I usually have little or no patience for anecdotes about fighting and dysfunctional musicians but the Abros and this book raise it to an art form Maybe it passes muster with me just because I m such a fan of the music There aren t many or any of this type left and these guys are wrapping up the t [...]


  8. If you are from the South, love Southern Rock music, and are a baby boomer, then you know and love those boys from Florida The Allman Brothers Band Their music is legendary, their lives are legendary and now the tales of everything we ve always heard of are related in a brilliant biography, One Way Out The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band, by Alan Paul Paul has gathered interviews with all the players, all the families and friends, and all the hangers on to make this book one of the mo [...]


  9. Musicians will have an appreciation for learning how the original lineup was instinctively constructed by Duane, the methods use to come up guitar harmonies, etc Much of the oral history simply confirms what one who has paid attention to the music and has seen many shows over the years has deduced It s interesting that personal conflicts and massive substance abuse comes straight through to the music It s entirely fitting that the band will go out at the end of this year playing the best music e [...]


  10. I love ABB and the oral history format so of course this was a fun read, but it fell short of what I hoped it would be I m not sure if the participants were reluctant to elaborate on certain topics, but many sections felt thin More input from Gregg would ve been nice as well, but since he put his own bio out recently I m sure his participation was calculated to be minimal It s worth a read for big fans Note I got an advance copy of the full book


  11. I wanted this to be a great book since I am a huge fan of the band, but it really seemed like a rehash of stuff I already knew from other books, articles, interviews, etc I think the author did a fine job in compiling the material and organizing it into a good chronological flow, but I came away from this book with very little new information.



  12. This book is a must read for any fan of the Allman Brothers It presents the history of the band beginning with the childhoods of brothers Duane and Gregg and ends with their final show in 2014 And while the book focuses disproportionately but appropriately on the vintage history, i.e before the deaths of Duane and Berry Oakley, it is pretty thorough in the way that it presents the subsequent trials and tribulations, including the impact of those deaths, the search for new musicians, the substanc [...]


  13. For serious Allman Brothers fans, this book is a must It definitely was for me in the wake of visiting the Macon Big House museum other Brothers sites recently, and most especially after Gregg s death Like so many creative artists, many of the the individuals in this band were personally seriously flawed, and they experienced than their share of tragedy, especially the motorcycle deaths of founders Duane Allman Berry Oakley But when they came together and were on and let s face it not fighting, [...]


  14. As a long time fan saw them for the first time in 76 and for the last time in 06 this book was both a walk back in time and a revelation It is nicely laid out, with everyone being able to tell it as they saw it And like any relationship that lasts over 40 years, there are several points of view about who did what to whom The drugs, alcohol and lack of money isn t a surprise The legal wranglings are You tend to forget that bands are a corporation I liked that this took the band from its earliest [...]


  15. Got this book on a whim with some left over book store credit It is a decent read The format is kind of strange mostly edited collections of band members thoughts on certain subjects interspersed with small sections of explanatory prose from the author The first half of the book about the early days of the band is really interesting However as the book goes on and the drugs and infighting drag the boys down, so to goes the book I found it worth reading, but my view may be a bit biased as a guita [...]


  16. I had high expectations from ratings Typically I really enjoy biographies Wasn t expecting the interview format I m sure for a long time and or deep fan of the band it would have been great I didn t come in with a depth of knowledge about the band beyond the brothers So was difficult for me to connect and follow the revolving door of players throughout the years Still interesting book.


  17. This book reminded me why I don t like to read these band histories Everything starts off great,with interesting early facts but then devolves into the negative The different points of view that the book is told through was cool at first But after a while it was tiresome Once conflicts became common the comments became less interesting.


  18. Duane Allman had a vision of how a band should look and sound He surrounded himself with jam musicians Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, Jaimoe and his brother Gregg Allman and made music history A fascinating look at the rise and fall of one of America s most iconic bands



  19. Esencial para conocer la historia de la ABB, y todav a m s disfrutable si se acompa a de la escucha de sus discos a medida que se avanza en su lectura Great read



  20. That s all folksIf you love that All an Brosen you have to read this book I can still here their songs in my head


  21. Excelente historia oral de una de las bandas fundamentales del rock estadounidense Todos los protagonistas hablan y dan su punto de vista Fotos y contexto Fundamental.


  22. It Is Time For Music AppreciationBy Bob Gelms In this issue, dedicated to music appreciation, we have Jerry Lee Lewis, The Allman Brothers, and Joe Perry from Aerosmith It s time to rock on Jerry Lee Lewis His Own Story is a mind bending, wide eyed, and slack jawed appreciation of one of, if not THE originator of Rock Roll You can say what you want about Elvis Presley but if there was no Jerry Lee Lewis we would not have Rock Roll as an art form today What we would have would be safe for Mom and [...]


  23. One Way Out The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band Alan Paul 464 pages ISBN 1250040493 St Martin s Press 2014Right on the heels of Ben Fong Torres Willin The Story of Little Feat Da Capo Press, 2013 comes Guitar Player magazine writer and Allman Brothers Band historian Alan Paul s One Way Out The Inside History Of The Allman Brothers Band These books are evidence of the late Baby Boomers continued interest in and reverence for the music they grew up with Part nostalgia, part history less [...]


  24. The author, Alan Paul, does a great job of telling the story of the Allman Brother s Band Each of the band members, and friends, tell their version of the story Sometimes it feels repetitive but always interesting to hear how everyone remembers the same event in their own way After having read several other bands stories, from this era, the use of drugs and alcohol, and continuing to produce what will become classic music, is still fascinating Loved hearing how the song Layla came about, from th [...]


  25. I remember becoming aware of the Allman Brothers Band when I was in my teens and some of their songs caught my attention on the radio I never knew much about them other than they were from the south, Duane Allman died young age 24 in a motorcycle accident, and Gregg Allman was married briefly to Cher The drugs, alcohol, and fights among the band members were not surprising This is the only book I ve read about the band or any of the members I like the way Alan Paul wrote the book using the words [...]


  26. Alan Paul has been writing about The Allman brothers Band for over 35 years, and has become a trusted journalist in their collective book, so he was the perfect man to take on the massive undertaking of telling the true, detailed story of one of the finest rock groups of the 20th century and beyond Written in an oral history style, the book is made up primarily of quotes from band members, music industry folk, family and friends and others, interspersed with Paul s narrative, and it works to gre [...]


  27. This review for the audiobook Well documented for the most part, the history of the ABB right up to 2013 Much about the greatness of Duane Allman and how Gregg and Dickey Betts had to pick up the pieces after Duane s tragic death I m than just a casual fan but I learned a lot here how pivotal Berry Oakley was to the band s sound, the importance of Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Derek Trucks who kept the torch lit as the band went through many lineup changes Dan Miller s narration was excellent [...]
