Taylor was a legend in the annals of Motown for two reasons:
He was the lead vocalist of the group Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers, which scored with the hit "Does Your Mama
Know About Me" in 1968; but perhaps more importantly, Taylor has been credited by many for
discovering The Jackson 5, one of the most important
soul music groups of all time.
Sadly, Taylor has died at age 83 after a battle with cancer.
