    Dallas Taylor liked to say that he made his first million — and his last million — by the time he was 21.

    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.

    Taylor, who went on to become an addiction counselor specializing in interventions and in reuniting alcoholics and addicts with their families, died Sunday in a Los Angeles hospital. He was 66.

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

    This was definitely one of my favorite bands growing up so this is a big loss for me. It is always sad to lose someone, and he was a talented musician. It seems like it has been a tough week for the music community, so I might just have to pay some tribute and put on some CSNY tonight, maybe follow it up with some David Bowie and some Eagles too.
