Poor family.
It does not seem real.
Both brothers so ill.
Hopefully, FT's daughter is a young child. I would assume she is an adult.
I know, I know, say something up, not down.
May their wives and kids be close. DT is still alive for their family.
It is a good article and very interesting.

I'd understand to be flamed on this, but people, if they listened with open minds and ears, would find an archive release of a 1980-81 ABB show, most interesting & cool -- like the 1990 6-man band and the 5-man era from '72, this lineup had a limited shelf life w/some 60 shows w/the Toler Bros. -- why not put something out that shows a different side of the band, different takes of the songs -- maybe the two albums were no good (not all may feel that way), but onstage, the ABB seldom failed to deliver, & it'd be interesting to see how these guys sounded

Had a interview w/Butch on cassette some years ago from this time period -- in which he said he really liked how he & Frankie were sounding -- Frankie was also interviewed, saying how locked in the music was -- we've seen it all before, when Paul Riddle, Yonrico Scott & others have sat in from time to time at the Beacon

& it would also give Frankie & DDT some respect for their contributions to the ABB -- in short, it'd be worthwhile to review the run of shows from this period & pick out one of the better ones to consider as an archive release...
...it'd never happen though, for multiple reasons...

OK there's my meaningless self-centered rant
Joyous holiday wishes out to all! Peace

Great link, thank you.

And Brother Stephen, you are not self-centered. You are a sweet and very caring man. I'm proud to call you my brother.

Stephen, I gotta agree with you and with Miss Kitty...I saw two or 3 shows in that time frame, never owned the Arista records, but as you say, and this is MHO, the band on stage never let down. I'd take an archival from that period and not think twice about it.
Just my .02

Love ya to pieces Kitty my sister -- hope it was/am sure still is all joy in the Widge household -- was real nice back here in Vt too
but it's cool -- I mean the Bros. of the Road vid, and that Sat Night Live clip from Jan. 1982 IMO support the idea for some sort of a release -- they don't sound awful to me on these shows -- there's a whole era of their own music they don't touch, & IMO a release w/a killer Butch/Frankie solo -- just to present the difference -- & a set list heavy on the current stuff from then, along of course w/the standard stuff, would be really cool

Man, I wrote it, submitted it, and Christmas kicked in and I didn't even know it was published yet. Thanks for sharing the link.

They should definitely put out some shows from that era. The proceeds could help the Toler family with their medical bills. I have several shows from the era and the band played well. I'm sure fans would like to hear it and help out a former Brother and his family.
