Outlaw Bobby Capps Celebrates His 50th With Tommy Chong

Turning 50 with the Zigzag Man
by Bobby Capps

Last night, an enthused crowd of fans packed the Punchline Comedy Club in Sacramento, California waiting for the Pope of Dope and his little Princess Puffette. If Jason Robard Jr and the Zigzag man had a love child, Tommy Chong would be the outcome. Some of the younger crowd only knew him as Leo (his character from That 70s Show).

The Chongs performed some old, new and some political comedy, but the highlight of the night was a trip-le play of some dance routines. These Latin hustlers were demonstrating some real talents. I've got news for you magic inhalers out there, this is no joke to the Chongs. They can dance. Although Tommy was doing his ever famous comedy styles in the back of Shelby, the moves were very sexual and sensual.

When the show was over, Tommy and Shelby signed autographs and sold T-shirts. Who would have known back in 1972, when I first started listening to Cheech and Chong, that I would be celebrating my 50th birthday with the Zigzag man. I brought my cake and shared it with the crowd who cheered for me and Tommy, as I handed him the slice with the joint. I was doing some Cheech impersonations and Tommy overheard me and stopped in the middle of signing to say, "Wow, that sounds just like Cheech!" As he continued to put smiles on peoples faces, he was telling people how much they enjoy dancing with the Stoners routine. I yelled out, "Hey Tommy, at least it’s better than Celebrity Duets!" The crowd roared and Shelby and Tommy cracked up. Tommy's last words were, "Cheech might have won if he sang My Momma told me not to ....” And the crowd joined in with “nah nah nuh nah nah nuh.”

To have Tommy Chong say I sound like Cheech is the best birthday gift ever. Thanks for the good years Tommy; I love you man!

Cheech and Chong, The Bicycle

Cheech and Chong superfan, Henry, has been working on this lowrider Cheech and Chong bicycle for two years. You'll notice the fuzzy dice he purchased from us.

From the owner...

It took me about 3 years to get this bike to the way it is now. It went through 3 different styles. The bike was a gift from my girlfriend. When we first got it, the bike was all original. After the first year, it turned into an all twist bike. Once it was all twist, the bike still looked undone. I still was not happy with it. I saw a picture on a magazine with a bike with its fenders painted and it looked really nice. So I figured I'd do the same. The only problem I had was that I did not know what theme to go with. So one day during work I was with my friend, Nolan, talking about the bike when he gave me the idea of Cheech & Chong. Im a huge fan of them so it made perfect sense to do it. I looked for a paint and mural shop here in Palmdale that would be able to help me with the fenders and the seat. I met with Cosme from Cosme’s Airbrush and he tells me that he did his El Camino hood with the Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie Cover on it. He showed me his car and I was impressed by the job he did on it. It also helped that he was a big Cheech & Chong fan, too.

The body frame and spare tire cover came in a little bit later. My friend Jesus and I did the frame and spare tire. It was pretty hard to get the shape of the frame. Once it was done, then back to Cosme’s I went. He tells me that I need to take it back to get all the scratches from the bondo out. So I did , and after 3 fixes it finally was ok to paint. We picked out our favorite scenes from the movies that we liked. We ended up picking the opening car scene from Up In Smoke. You can see that Chong has his hands together telling Cheech to say "MELLOW". On the other side of the bike, we have Cheech with a worried look in his face after taking too much acid. The 2 murals in the back side are them two smoking the "Quarter Pounder". As far as the spare tire goes, we have the Up In Smoke cover on it with Cheech & Chong getting rolled up in a joint. Cosme did both there faces on the seat and on the fenders, also. The whole bike is covered with smoke that pop out when the bike is moved. We also got the Uniques Bike Club logo on it too.The top and bottom of the bike are also covered in film that represents the movies they made. I had the honor of meeting Chong and his wife Shelby in person at the Improv in Ontario CA. He signed 3 of my shirts and he was kind enough to take pictures with me. I have Tommy Chong’s autograph on my bike too that was copied from my shirt that he signed. I got Cheech’s autograph by taking pictures that he’s signed online. The name of the bike is "Up In Smoke" but many just call it "The Cheech & Chong Bike". It really does not matter to me what they call it, as long as it brings them memories of there favorite Cheech & Chong moments.

Special thanks to my Uniques Antelope Valley Family , Javier , Aaron , Alex. To Cosme from Cosme’s Airbrush (u really got down on the bike man, thanks) to HHH Bike Club for helping us get things going in the AV.. And last I would like to thank Mr.Weedman for giving me the opportunity to get to show the bike on his website.

Smoke On!

The Black Crowes, Kenny Wayne Shepherd & Hubert Sumlin Light Up the Music Box at the Fonda; Winning Contestant Receives Crown, a Slot to Perform at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festival and a Prize Pack Valued at Over 50,000 Dollars

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA--(MARKET WIRE)--Jun 17, 2007 -- Guitar Center, the nation's leading music instrument retailer, today announced the winner of "King of The Blues" '07, the world's largest guitar competition.

In an epic show on Saturday, June 16th at the historic Music Box @ Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA, Aaron Loesch from Houston, Texas, performed alongside Grammy® Award-winning producer Pete Anderson, and battled it out with three other contestants from around the country in front of a sold out crowd of more than 1,400. The evening's judges, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Hubert Sumlin, Pete Anderson, Brad Tolinsky, Randy Chortoff and last year's winner, Matt O'Ree, based their decision on overall performance, originality, technique, style and stage presence.

Hosted by Cheech Marin, the finals showcased the nation's top undiscovered talent, and featured performances by The Black Crowes, a special collaborative set by Kenny Wayne Shepherd and blues legend Hubert Sumlin, as well as an appearance by Billy Bob Thornton.

"The amount of talent that came out during this year's competition was nothing short of amazing," said Dustin Hinz, Manager of Event Marketing and Promotions. "Guitar Center is proud to work with such a versatile emerging artist. Through 'King of The Blues,' we hope Guitar Center will be able to act as the catalyst for Aaron Loesch as he begins his career as a professional musician."

"I'm very grateful just to be at this level in the competition and to get to perform with amazing artists like The Black Crowes, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Hubert Sumlin," said Aaron Loesch, this year's winner. "Guitar Center has really blown the doors of opportunity open for me. I'm incredibly excited to see what the future has in store.

UPDATE: Chong To Be On Colbert Report Tomorrow

Tommy Chong will be on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report tomorrow (Tuesday). He'll be promoting his book and talking about Paris Hilton. I'm sure he'll have a lot to say about the MSNBC reporter.

It airs 11:30p / 10:30c.

**Update: Tommy's appearance on the Colbert Report was hysterical. First, they played the clip of Tommy being interviewed on MSNBC last Friday. Then, Colbert interviewed Tommy via satellite from Los Angeles. Tommy said rather than prison time, the judge should have put Paris over his knee, lifted her skirt and given her such a licking.

Tommy was promoting his book "The I Chong: Meditations From The Joint."

Friday, June 08, 2007


MSNBC contacted Cheech and Chong Dot Com yesterday wanting to interview Tommy Chong about Paris Hilton's legal saga.

Tommy appeared on MSNBC this afternoon while Paris was being driven back to court. MSNBC must have expected a calm, cookie cutter interview with Tommy, but that's not what they got.

Tommy got straight to the point. He said the media is controlled by the republicans and this is part of the republican agenda to distract people from issues such as Gonzales firing the attorneys.

The anchor kept trying to cut him off and then had the audacity to accuse Tommy of smoking pot today. She said she asked if he smoked today because his republican theory was so "out there". Very unprofessional on her part.

It will be interesting to see what Tommy says at tomorrow's NORML benefit.

Watch the interview below. It's great.

A couple weeks ago, Tommy gave Paris some words of wisdom outside a comedy club.
