Allman Brothers Book Author Event Tonight at Cinderlands Warehouse (Thurs., 7/27/23)
Alan Paul, a Squirrel Hill native and Taylor Allderdice graduate, after working in music journalism and writing about the topic for many years, is known as “rock’s finest narrative historian.” A New York Times’ best-selling author, Paul’s latest book is Brothers and Sisters: The Allman Brothers Band and the Inside Story of the Album That Defined the ’70s. The book explores the nexus the band found themselves in during that decade: politics—Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign, the rise of celebrity media culture, and the trailblazing of the southern rock genre. Paul conducted extensive interviews and research for the publication. It is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the landmark album. Paul, whose grandfather owned Paul Lumber and Supply in Bloomfield, will be back in Pittsburgh this evening at 7 p.m. for an author talk and book signing event at Cinderlands Warehouse in the Strip District. The book was released on July 25. 2601 Smallman St.
