CSNY's Dallas Taylor Dead at 66

(Classic Rock) Former Crosby, Stills, Nash And Young drummer Dallas Taylor has died at the age of 66. Taylor drummed on Crosby Stills And Nash's debut album after becoming friends with Stephen Stills and stayed with the band when they added Neil Young and became CSNY. He went on to play on Still's 1970 solo album and joined him in the group Manassas. He also played with Van Morrison during the course of an impressive career behind the kit. His wife Patti Mcgovern-Taylor broke the news via Facebook. She wrote: "This morning at 2:30 am I lost the love of my life Dallas W Taylor. He came into my life almost 18 years ago and saved me as much as I may have saved him. "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. I cannot even find the words to put down to say how grateful I am for the many friends and family who have been there for both of us these many days he has spent in the hospital, especially last night."

Fleetwood Mac Forced To Cut Show Short Due To Illness

(hennemusic) Fleetwood Mac were forced to end their concert in Lincoln, Nebraska early on Saturday night after drummer Mick Fleetwood fell ill during the show, according to The Lincoln Journal Star. The show came to a halt when Stevie Nicks told the crowd at the Pinnacle Bank Arena, "Mick is really sick," adding the drummer was backstage throwing up. "We feel terrible, but we can't really make him play. Give us a minute, and we'll figure out what to do." The band regrouped and played two more songs, "Go Your Own Way" with a drum tech behind the kit and then, after a short break, Christine McVie returned to the stage at a grand piano for "Songbird" accompanied by guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. "Poor old Mick is really sick," said McVie. "I sing this for him and for all of you."

AC/DC Star's Grammys Appearance In Doubt

(hennemusic) The status of AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd's availability for the band's performance at next month's Grammy Awards is in question due to the conditions of his bail. The International Business Times reports the February 8 Grammys appearance falls two days prior to Rudd's return to a New Zealand court to face multiple charges stemming from his November 6 arrest. Part of Rudd's bail conditions is to reside in his Tauranga home, which may make it difficult for the drummer to leave the country for the event in Los Angeles. The day the situation made headlines around the world, AC/DC released a statement saying, "We've only become aware of Phil's arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment. Phil's absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year."
