Drummer Dallas Taylor, best known for his stint with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, died yesterday at the age of 66.
Taylor appears on the cover of the CSNY classic Deja Vu. He would also later drum with the group Manassas which was founded by Stephen Stills and Chris Hillman of The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers.
Unfortunately, Taylor had a very nasty alcohol and drug problem. Even The Who's Keith Moon, who once had to be replaced by a fan in the audience because he was so high, told Taylor he did too many drugs and drank too much. When Keith Moon tells you that you're doing too many drugs then you've got a big problem.
He would eventually get sober and became a highly respected alcohol and drug counselor. Despite his sobriety, Taylor would eventually need a liver transplant in 1990 and his wife would donate him a kidney in 2007.
Dallas Taylor did manage to save his life in time to help save others.
