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.

Go to scroll down to "S" section Future Releases July 11th and click on the blue arrow next to the song title and launch the Windows Media Player.  Pay attention to about 3:23 where the edit took place removing one of the choruses that repeat... plus the ending of the song has one line where she says "For What It's Worth" removed... Song still sounds good even though about 28 seconds of the song have been removed.


The track is going for adds the week of July 20th to the formats TRIPLE A | AC | ROCK according to Radio and Records.

KWAV 96.9FM out of Monterey, California has added the song to their playlist according to mediabase.

Hey Radio... "For What It's Worth" Is Worth Playing!

A clear sign that the 2nd single from the Stevie Nicks album 'In Your Dreams' has been issued to radio is the 4 ebay auctions currently running selling the 2 track promo discs.  These promo only discs are issued to radio stations and DJ's for consideration on their playlists... 'For What It's Worth' hopefully will start receiving some airplay across the USA. The 4 listings on ebay all include the album cut at 4:31 and an edit at 4:03, which shaves off 28 seconds from the album version. I'm curious as to what they shaved off. Possibly sacrificed is a large chunk of the intro where up to the point of the bell ringing is about 18 seconds.

I really hope radio gives this great track a chance!... It's right up there along the lines of Landslide as far as I'm concerned...A timeless piece of music.
