Drummer who inspired Stevie Nicks "For What It's Worth" has passed away

Dallas Taylor, former drummer for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young passed away Sunday at the age of 66.

Dallas was best known for his work with CSNY between 1969 and 1973. After parting ways with CSNY and leaving music all together he became a drug and alcohol interventionist in Los Angeles after having his own substance abuse problems.

His wife Patti Mcgovern-Taylor confirmed the news via a post on Facebook.

1990 Entertainment Tonight Profile:

In 1993 when Stevie Nicks admitted herself to the Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital in Venice Beach for her addiction to Klonopin, where it took her 47 days to detox from the drug, Dallas Taylor was there with her the whole time. - The Telegraph (2007)

In the "In Your Dreams" promo footage and "In Your Dreams" documentary Stevie talks about "the drummer" that saved her life while fresh out of rehab and on a tour bus for the first time during the Street Angel Tour in 1994. (advance the video to the 1:09 mark).

So this weekend definitely hasn't been the best weekend in Stevie's world with Mick being ill and now with Dallas' passing.
