Dallas Taylor, a drummer for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young in the late 1960s, died Sunday at age 66.

Taylor’s career included playing at Woodstock and on seven top-selling albums.

Mired by excessive drug use, he was fired from the band in 1970. The rocker, who had a liver transplant in 1990, went on to become an addiction counselor.

His wife, Patti McGovern-Taylor, said his health had been failing. She posted about his death on Facebook.

 


Taylor was born in Denver, and his first job in music was with the 1960s band Clear Light.

Friends and fans remembered him on Twitter.
