Episode 256- The History of the Allman Brothers

The early 1970s was an incredibly difficult time for one of the most popular bands of the decade. With two long time members having died within almost a year of each other, The Allman Brothers Band regrouped and recorded one of the biggest album of their career.

We talked with Alan Paul about his new book, “Brothers and Sisters- The Allman Brothers Band and the Inside Story of the Album that Defined the 70s.” It’s a great look at the era, even if you don’t think you’re an Allman fan, you’ll love it.
