Just a Friday reminder… It’s Coming soon – February 18, 2014
St. Martin’s will be publishing One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band on February 18, 2014, to coincide with the band’s 45th anniversary.
This is intended to be no less than the ultimate word on the greatest band in rock history. I interviewed over 50 people, including all surviving band members and many friends and associates, including Eric Clapton, the late producer Tom Dowd and four of the band’s managers, including the late Phil Walden.
One Way Out also features 32 Pages of glossy photos, plus many more in text – almost 150 photographs including many never-before-seen images by Danny Clinch, Jim Marshall, Neal Preston, Stephen Paley, Sidney Smith, John Gellman and others. Uniquely, it also features almost 100 images taken by ABB road managers Twiggs Lyndon and Kirk West.
Foreword by Butch Trucks. Afterword by Jaimoe.
Fans of the earlier Ebook, please note that this is a new book – over five times longer. Since the initial E-publication I have interviewed the following, some several times: Butch Trucks, Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Chuck Leavell, Johnny Sandlin, Jonny Podell, Mike Lawler, David Goldflies, Kim Payne, Stephen Paley, W. David Powell, Rick Hall, Bunky Odom, Don Law, Michael Caplan, Col. Bruce Hampton, Mama Louise Hudson, John, Scoots and AJ Lyndon, Linda Oakley, John Scher, Kirk West and Johnny Neel.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
One Way Out is an oral history of the Allman Brothers Band culled from hundreds of hours of interview, all conducted by award-winning author and journalist Alan Paul, of Guitar World magazine.
The book includes many never-before-published interviews with band members Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Jaimoe, Butch Trucks, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge, the late Allen Woody, Jack Pearson, Jimmy Herring, plus Eric Clapton, Tom Dowd, Phil Walden, Rick Hall, Billy Gibbons, Dr. John, Scott Boyer and others.
It also includes: a highly opinionated discography with short reviews of over 50 albums from the ABB, Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Gov’t Mule, Derek Trucks Band and more.
One Way Out includes the most in-depth look at the acrimonious 2000 parting with founding guitarist Dickey Betts; an intense discussion of Dickey Betts and Duane Allman’s revolutionary guitar styles; thorough behind-the-scenes information on the recording of At Fillmore East, Layla, Eat A Peach and other classic albums. You will not find this information anywhere else.
“Alan Paul is one of America’s foremost experts on the Allman Brothers Band. For the past 20 years, he has written informative, comprehensive articles on the band, and he truly understands the essence of their significance. It’s great to see him release this chronicle.”
