Have known about this for a few weeks ,and now Danny has decided to go public with this news.
Please keep him and his loved ones in your prayers. Danny is a good man, and deserves all of the positive vibes sent his way.
Should be a great day of music on the 13th.



Former Allman Brother battles ALS
By WADE TATANGELO - wtatangelo@bradenton.com


MANATEE -- It has been a tragic past couple months for the Tolers.
Former Allman Brothers Band guitarist and Manatee County resident Dan Toler has just gone public about his worsening battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis -- or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
His younger sibling, drummer David “Frankie” Toler, died June 4 at Tidewell hospice care in Bradenton after a prolonged illness following a liver transplant.He was 59.

Danny and Frankie played together in the Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman Band, Dickey Betts & Great Southern, as well as several other projects.
A swollen vocal cord has made it impossible for Toler to speak above a whisper.
He recently issued a statement published on the Facebook page “Benefit For Danny Toler.”

“First of all, I thank each and every one of you for being such good people and I want all of you to know I love you very much with all my heart and soul,” Toler said.
After acknowledging his friend, fellow local guitarist Larry “Rhino” Reinhardt, Toler continued: “We are both fighters and a couple of strong-willed men who happen to love playing music for our family, friends and fans. We both have been dealt a tough way out of this life.”

Reinhardt began his career playing throughout Bradenton and Sarasota with Betts and other local luminaries in the 1960s before joining Iron Butterfly (“In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”) and then cofounding Captain Beyond, which signed to the Allman Brothers’ label Capricorn.
“Jesus Christ is going to take care of the both of us and just maybe a cure will come along,” Toler said. “Rhino has the liver to deal with and I have been diagnosed with ALS.”


Toler thanked his wife, Debby, for taking care of him.
“She has been my rock for many, many years and I love Debby with all my heart and soul,” he said. “Thank you, Lord, for having Debby in my life.”
The Benefit for Danny Toler takes place Aug. 13 at Aces Live in Bradenton.
Many of the area’s top players will be performing, including Toler.
“Who knows who will show up and play,” he said. “I love doing benefits for people that need help and I never ever thought a benefit would have to be held for me. It definitely breaks my heart, but I want to thank everyone helping out with this event.”

Had the great occasion to meet and talk to Dan back in about 2002 or 2003 prior to a DB&GS show in Waukesha Wi. He didn't know me from Adam but was nice and gracious enough to chat for 4-5 minutes and solidly guarantee a fan for life. My sincere best wishes to him.

I have met Dan a time or two and he's a sweetheart. I can't be at his benefit but I put his pick next to a holy card I have and remember to pray for my friend each day.

Prayers go out to the entire Toler Family. Dangerous Dan is one of the finest people I had the chance to meet. Frankie was a real class act too.

I hate that he is going through this and it's getting worse for him as the months pass. When I saw that video of him in a wheelchair but still jamming so sweet I was in tears. I am a BIG fan and am sick over this... I've been sending strong prayers to Dan since I learned of his condition.... It's just awful!

Boy oh boy do I hate it when posts like this one show up on here. This time its Dangerous Dan.

But here is the most important statement in the OP....

quote:
“Jesus Christ is going to take care of the both of us and just maybe a cure will come along.


D.D. will be alright, and playing great music if a cure comes along.

And if there is no earthly cure, he will still be playing great music, but it will be a much grander stage then any he has played on before.

I first heard Dan play on the DB & GS albums released in the late 70's.... I first saw him play at the DB & GS show at the Roxy theater in Los Angeles in May of 1977...(I still have the Cocktail Glass from that show) that was broadcast "Live" on KMET with local DJ "BMR" in the crowd and serving as MC...I was blown away by Dan at that show and always felt that his talents were under utilized on ER when it was released in '79....

You are an amazing player Dan......healing vibes headed your way

Thanks for the music

Dan is such a talented man with a sweet disposition, and a complete gentleman to boot. Sending love, prayers and good vibes to him and his family. I am very saddened by this news.

I am holding a pick that Dan gave me at the Orange Peel while wailing away with Dickie...he flashed that big Dan Toler grin when he saw how pleased I was...A great, kind but also a humble man...a great guitarist...prayers thoughts and +vibes to Dan and family. Just heart breaking news to me.
