Bobby Taylor

Bobby formed Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers, originally performing under different, more colorful monikers, with friend Tommy Chong. The group gained quite a following in the Pacific Northwest and caught the ear of Motown’s Berry Gordy. They signed with Motown in 1967 and had a hit with “Does Your Mama Know About Me.” During a run at Chicago’s Regal Theatre, Bobby was introduced to a young group called the Jackson Five. He took them back to Detroit, put them up in his apartment and groomed them for an audition with Gordy himself. The rest, as they say, is history. Bobby later recorded with Epic and Philadelphia International Records.
