Alan Paul at Terrapin Crossroads - One Way Out

One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band ($29.99), 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. He has interviewed every living band member for this book as well as managers, roadies, and contemporaries, including: Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Oteil Burbridge, the late Allen Woody, Jimmy Herring, Eric Clapton, and many others.

Tracking the band's career from their 1969 formation to today, this work 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.

Alan Paul is a senior writer for Guitar World magazine and has interviewed the Allman Brothers Band hundreds of times. No one has written more frequently about the band, and his work has earned the praise of Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes, Butch Trucks, and other band members. He is the author of Big in China, and his work has also appeared in The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, the Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, People, and among others.

This event will take place at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael.
