Happy 75th Birthday to Jaimoe Johanson (pictured left in photo), who was drummer for the Allman Brothers when they started in 1966, right through until they retired in 2014! Following the deaths in 2017 of Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman, Jaimoe and Dickey Betts are the last surviving original members of the band.
Here is 11 minutes very well spent ~ vintage high quality footage of the Allmans at Fillmore East, 49 years ago! Jaimoe (along with second drummer, Butch) is playing on this wicked rendition of “Whipping Post”!
