BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — In a story Feb. 25 about the death of Allman Brothers band guitarist Dan Toler, The Associated Press reported erroneously that his brother, David "Frankie" Toler, had played on the band's "Enlightened Rogues" and "Reach the Sky" albums. Frankie Toler did not join the band until the later "Brothers of the Road" album.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Former Allman Brothers band member dies in Fla.
Dan Toler, former Allman Brothers band member, dies in Florida at age 65
Former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dan Toler has died following a two-year battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, otherwise known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. He was 65.
Steve Fayette, a family friend, confirmed on Monday that Toler passed away in his sleep.
Toler, who is originally from Indiana, joined the Allman Brothers in 1979. In 1982, he joined The Gregg Allman band along with his brother, David "Frankie" Toler.
Dan Toler played on the Allman Brothers' 1979 comeback album "Enlightened Rogues" and also "Reach for the Sky."
Both Tolers played in the band's "Brothers of the Road." The Tolers spent the rest of the 1980s touring and recording the gold album "I'm No Angel" with the Gregg Allman Band.
