Dan Toler was an American guitarist who is perhaps best known for his years playing with the Allman Brothers Band.  Born in Indiana, Toler took up the guitar at a young age.  During the ’70s, he took up residence in Dickey Betts & Great Southern.  He played with Betts on his third album, Atlanta’s Burning Down.  The following year, he and Betts joined the Allman Brothers where he played on their “comeback” album, Enlightened Rogues, as well as Reach for the Sky and Brothers of the Road.  In later years, he played in the Gregg Allman Band, the Townsend Toler Band (with John Townsend), and the Renegades of Southern Rock.  Dan Toler was 65 when he died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s Disease on February 25, 2013.
