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.
The Tolers played on the Allman Brothers' 1979 comeback album "Enlightened Rogues."
