Did you know Tommy Chong was once signed to Motown? Neither did I. DVR’d a/k/a Tommy Chong, a documentary that covers the comedian’s lame arrest and imprisonment for selling bongs over the internet.
Anyway, this dude’s had a fascinating life. He mentions in passing that his band Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers was signed to Motown. He wrote their only hit, “Does Your Mama Know About Me,” before being thrown out. The Supremes covered it. You can listen to another one of their songs, “I Am Your Man,” at Old School Music Lover.
That’s Chong on the far right.
