it was amazing

How do you recount a history as varied, long-lived, and chaotic as The Allman Brothers Band's? By telling each person's version of history, which Mr. Paul does with balance, humor, and without sanctifying the flawed humans that comprise the ABB (OK, maybe he sanctifies Duane a bit, but who doesn't).

This book deepened my appreciation for the music and heightened my listening of the various incarnations of the ABB. Not a sordid tell-all, just a coherent history of how the quirky musical institution can be celebrating 45 years of incredible music.
