RIP Dan Toler

Onetime Allman Brothers guitarist Dan Toler has died at 65. Toler was suffering from ALS, as this anecdote from Ticket Sarasota notes:

As the grip of Lou Gehrig’s disease tightened and left him unable to speak, Dan Toler motioned as if he was snapping a pencil. Then he pointed to his guitar. And then to his heart. ‘He was telling me it was breaking his heart that he couldn’t play guitar,’ recalled close friend Chaz Trippy.
