Dallas Taylor, the drummer best known for his work with Crosby, Stills & Nash, has died aged 66.

Dallas first featured with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young during the folk rock supergroup’s Woodstock set.

He went on to garner an album credit for 1970 record Déjà Vu, before going on to perform with Stephen Stills and Manassas.


After undergoing a liver transplant in 1990, Dallas later worked as an addition counsellor.

“To me he was just a Good Man, a Good Friend, a Good Father, a Good Grandfather or Pop Pop, a Great Drummer and much beloved by many,” his partner Patti McGovern Taylor wrote on Facebook.

Guns N’ Roses’ drummer Matt Sorum was among the first to pay tribute to Taylor, while Brian Jonestown Massacre's Anton Newcome crediting the musician for aiding his recovery from drug addiction.

His death comes just nine days after that of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young bassist Tim Drummond, who passed away on 10 January.
