David “Frankie” Toler, former Allman Brothers Band drummer, passed away Saturday, June 4 in Bradenton, Florida, after a prolonged illness at the age of 59.  Frankie came to national attention in the 1970’s when he appeared on Dickey Betts album “Atlanta’s Burning Down”.  He toured extensively with the band. Later, Frankie was asked to be the drummer for The Allman Brothers Band and he appeared on their album, “Brothers of the Road”. When Gregg Allman began planning his solo album at the time, he only had one drummer in mind for his new band: Frankie Toler. Frankie also recorded two albums and toured with The Gregg Allman Band.  Frankie Toler’s health had been in decline for several years and it prevented him from recording and going on tour, but after receiving a liver transplant two years ago he had been able to play at some band rehearsals.
