Former Allman Brothers Band Member Dan Toler Dies

02/25/2013
.
Onetime Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dan Toler died at his home in Sarasota Florida on Monday morning, (February 25th), after fighting a long battle against (ALS) Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

Toler was best known as a member of the Dickey Betts & Great Southern band and was featured on the two albums with Dickey Betts & Great Southern before becoming a member of The Allman Brothers Band from 1979 until 1982.

Toler was featured on the Allman's 1979 album, "Enlightened Rogues," 1980 album "Reach for the Sky" and "Brothers of the Road" in 1981.

Dan Toler and his late brother David (Frankie) Toler were members of the Gregg Allman Band in the 1980s, and were featured on his album, I'm No Angel, in 1987; and again on Just Before the Bullets Fly in 1988.

In 2005, Dan along with other Southern Rock Royalty joined "The Renegades of Southern Rock," whose members included George McCorkle of The Marshall Tucker Band, John Townsend from the Sanford-Townsend Band and Jack Hall from Wet Willie.

In 2008, Dan and his friends Ron Gary and Ed Zinner formed "TGZ," an ethereal Blues-Jazz combination that received world attention when released on the indie label, King Mojo Records.

Dan teamed up again with John Townsend in 2009 and formed the Toler/Townsend Band. Their self-titled album was released that same year on the Garage Door Records indie label.

Dan Toler is survived by his wife Debbie, their daughter Danielle Franz, her husband Dan and his Mother-in-law, Louise Rose. Memorial arrangements are currently pending and will be announced as soon as they are made available.
