Interview with Bobby Taylor

Once upon a time, long before Cheech met Chong, Tommy Chong was the guitarist in the band Bobby Taylor and The Vancouvers. Their biggest hit was in the late '60s..."Does your mama know about me?."

The Vancouver Sun interviewed Bobby Taylor about Vancouver, Tommy Chong and the band.

Some highlights:
  • Bobby met Tommy in 1962 when Tommy came to San Francisco with his band looking for work.
  • Tommy offered Bobby Taylor $750/week and half ownership in his club to perform at the club.
  • Tommy and Bobby discovered the Jackson 5 in 1968 when they opened for the Vancouvers.
