Rocker Allman Signs Books at Macon Museum

MACON, Ga. (AP) -- Hundreds lined up to get Gregg Allman's autograph at a museum in the Macon house where members of the Allman Brothers Band lived early in the group's career.
The Telegraph of Macon reports that the event Sunday at The Big House was the end of Allman's book tour for his new autobiography. The museum, which opened in 2009, sold $125 tickets to the event to help raise money for the tourist attraction near downtown Macon.
Museum officials say some ticketholders drove across the country for the chance to meet Allman. Allman's 24-year-old fiance, Shannon Williams, was there.
The marriage will be Allman's seventh.
The house was the band's unofficial headquarters in the early 1970s. It averages about 1,000 visitors each month.
