David “Frankie” Toler, who died last year at Tidewell hospice care in Bradenton after a prolonged illness following a liver transplant, was the drummer for the Allman Brothers Band, Gregg Allman Band and Marshall Tucker Band (1992-94).
“Frankie’s personality was so big — it stuck out farther than his mighty drumsticks,” Gray told the Herald. “I didn’t know anybody who couldn’t talk to him.”
Thunder By the Bay, which raises money for Suncoast Charities for Children, is one of the top motorcycle festivals in Florida.
