On the heels of opening for Beck on a European tour, tragedy struck the band as they were on the verge of signing with a major label.

Taylor died on May 23, 1997 when his 1977 Mercedes crashed into a pole on Main Street in Dayton.

He was just blocks from his home.

More than $44,500 has been raised to support Mahoney’s movie project.
