Song of the Day: The Highwaymen “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”

Today I am sitting in a coffee shop down the street from the Carlsbad flower fields here in SoCal because there is no internet at my house. It’s just one of the adventures in San Diego real estate. Meh.

Anyway, this song, “Mamas Don’ Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” came on and I found myself swaying at my table for one. I think Willie Nelson’s twang-y voice is perfect for this. And who doesn’t love Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson?

Book Review: Alan Paul “One Way Out The Inside History Of The Allman Brothers’ Band”

There are few bands whose music can bring back so many memories, and still be considered “good” in the present. The Allman Brothers Band holds so many memories for many people, and their Southern Fried Rock music still holds water today. Alan Paul took a look at the history of the Allman Brothers’ Band through the beginning, the darkest lows, and their re-incarnation of today. And he didn’t hold back.

Paul’s book was a very easy read. I was able to finish it in about 3 days. And while it would help if you had some knowledge of the band, someone that had no idea about the band’s history would still find this biography informative and entertaining.

There were a few surprises, like answers to purported rumors of drug busts and egos, but also about the new blood that came and went and the “reincarnation” of Duane Allman through Butch Trucks’ nephew, Derek Trucks.

Knowing a lot of the history of the band, it was still hard to read of the deaths of Duane and Barry Oakley and the effect that they had on the rest of the band, not just the musicians but also the crew.

No matter what happened to the band throughout the decades, it held true to its roots through all of its incarnations and the author brought this out.

The only thing that would have made One Way Out: The Inside Story of The Allman Brothers’ Band even better would have been an accompanying CD of their music.
