IamA Allman Brothers Band biographer, Alan Paul, author of "One Way Out". AMA about the ABB, blues and rock legends, guitars or even living in China!
My short bio:
Hi Reddit music fans and book lovers, this is Alan Paul, the Allman Brothers Band biographer and author of "One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band", which debuted on the New York Times Top 10 Best Sellers list. The expanded paperback, which includes an extensive chapter on the band's final year, came out 10 days ago.
Lots to discuss about the band's past, present and future, as well as Gov' MUle, the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gregg Allman Band and more.

I am also the senior writer for Guitar World magazine and the frontman for a blues band. My first book, "Big In China", is a memoir about my years as an expat playing music in Beijing being developed for a film by Ivan Reitman. So if you are curious about life in China, ask me anything!
I'll be online for the next 12 hours, maybe longer, answering your questions, so let's rock!
