About this Famous Person


American Mel TAYLOR

born Melvyn Lawrence TAYLOR

American musician who was the longtime drummer for the Ventures

Source :  Tim DOWLING

Born: on September 24, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York City, United States
Died: on August 11, 1996 in Tarzana, California, United States


After drumming with Boris Pickett and Herb Alpert, Taylor joined the Ventures in 1962 to fill in for Howie Johnson, who had been severely injured in an automobile accident. Johnson played with a neck brace for a period, but didn't want to be away from his family (in Washington state) for long periods, so he opted to be replaced. Taylor's distinct, harder-edged rock style so impressed the members of the band that they asked him to become a permanent member of the group.
