Allmans' Drummer Jaimoe Tours Macon

A big name in music is getting back to where it all started.

Jaimoe Johanson, drummer for the Allman Brothers, is visiting the city where the band's career took off.

He's now got a band of his own, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, and says they're touring all across the southeast.

Jaimoe and his crew arrived in Macon Tuesday and spent the afternoon touring the Allman Brothers Museum.

He says he's happy to be hitting the drums again, something he says he learned all on his own.

"I practiced a lot, played whenever I could," says the drummer. "And watched people. I copied everything I saw."

The band plans to play at the Douglass Theatre Wednesday night at 8 p.m.
