“All this bad news for Allman Brothers fans is probably good news for my book,” Alan Paul jokes when we begin talking about One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band
. His new oral history of the group becomes available on Tuesday, February 18, and is
racking up preorders on Amazon and other outlets. Paul is referring, of course, to the impending 45th
and final year of the band — a finale that
refutes the assertion in “Midnight Rider” that the road goes on forever.
