Dallas Taylor RIP

Dallas TaylorDallas Taylor, once the drummer for Crosby, Still, Nash & Young has died at age 66.

He had a rough life, his mother giving him opium as a young boy. He struggled with addiction and overcame his demons, and becoming a counselor he saved many lives.

Taylor liked to say that he made his first million — and his last million — by the time he was 21, writes Steve Chawkins of the Los Angeles Times.

According to the Times: The rock drummer was a key sideman for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. He played at Woodstock, appeared on seven top-selling albums and bought three Ferraris. He also stabbed himself in the stomach with a butcher knife and drank so heavily that he required a liver transplant in 1990, five years after becoming sober.

He had been in failing health for some time, his wife, Patti McGovern-Taylor, said.

RIP Joe Cocker

joe-cockerJoe Cocker and Neil Young both played at Woodstock in 1969.

Singer Joe Cocker, 70, best known for his cover of The Beatles’ With A Little Help From My Friends, died on Monday, Dec. 22, 2014.

The Sheffield-born singer had a career lasting more than 40 years, with hits including You Are So Beautiful and Up Where We Belong, according to a nice tribute write-up by the BBC News.

His agent Barrie Marshall said Cocker, who died after battling lung cancer, was “simply unique”.

Sir Paul McCartney said he was a lovely guy who “brought so much to the world”.

Cocker’s friend Rick Wakeman, keyboard player for the rock band Yes, called his rendition of With a Little Help From My Friends “sensational” and said: “He had a voice that was just unique.”

Wakeman told BBC Radio 2: “The great thing is with someone like Joe is what they leave behind, and that will be with us for years and years.”

Musician friends say Cocker will remain “Etched in our memories.”
