      I'm stunned. Taylor was truly gifted and such a vibrant personality. I feel so bad for his family, friends, bands and fellow fans.

        Nothing else to add. Except that this is beyond sad... He leaves behind a wife and 3 kids.

        Dave Grohl must be in pieces.

          I’m gutted. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’” This really just breaks my heart.

          Memorare, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi. Amen.

            I saw him with Alanis Morrissette and he was noticeably amazing. He was a great drummer, showman, personality and a fan of Yes. Everyone knows he connected Jon Davison to Yes through his friendship with Chris, and when Chris passed he wore a Yes shirt on stage for that whole tour. It really sucks but he apparently has been fighting drug use and almost had a "moment' with heroin years ago. He said he was over that but from what I've read there may have been paraphernalia in the room. It's a tragedy. If you know someone who is using, please don't shun them or stay away--instead help them!. Ultimately, they have to decide they want to clean up, but a sponsor can help them do just that. I know of great successes and some who still never can get off. Understand that for some of these drugs, once you use them once, something switches in their brains and they are helpless unless they can be brought to people who can help. It's not confirmed that it was an overdose, but I am fearing that will end up being the cause. RIP, Taylor. Once thing I remember from his time with Alanis is when she hit him with a cake and he chased her around the stage to get her back. Full of life. You can see the fun they had. I'm sure she is in shock as well. He was such a bright light, music fan, prog fan and talented drummer. RIP, Taylor.

              They were best friends, so yeah - Dave has lost a part of himself.

                Yep. Very sad news. RIP.

                He had connections to Yes too; he was friends with Jon Davison since childhood and also knew Chris and Alan pretty well.

                  Johnny Bruhns actually first introduced the "boys" in YES to Jon Davison. The other story sounds better, but Johnny told me this himself. He also told me that Taylor pretty much had a dream job, and was pretty fortunate when he told him what an average day entailed for him.

                  Fifty is actually old. Don't kid yourself. I don't feel like I am over fifty, but there have been a ton of folks who have passed in their teens, twenties, thirties and forties. Fifty is certainly getting up there, no matter how much we try to fool ourselves. Enjoy every single day. They just go by, faster and faster.
