A group and an individual musician's infobox on the same page?[edit]

I was surprised to find a group and an individual musician's infobox on the same page. While seeing two infoboxes on the same page in album and song articles, it isn't done on group pages to also place one for a single person in the group. I'm hoping this is a temporary measure until someone creates the individual page? --Leahtwosaints (talk) 08:54, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Jimi Hendrix DID play in Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers[edit]

I live in Vancouver.. this is local history we're talking about. Yes.. Jimi played in The Vancouvers. In fact.. both he and Tommy were in the band at the same time... for about 10 days. There's even photos of Jimi, Tommy, and Bobby.. a simple google will pop them up.

And if that's not enough.. I saw Cheech and Chong, Sept. 21st 2013, here in Vancouver (Red Robinson Show Theater). Tommy brought his guitar out, and he started talking about Bobby Taylor and a song Tommy wrote called "Does Your Momma Know About Me". Shelby Chong (Tommy's wife.. from Vancouver), stated that Tommy "replaced" some guy called Jimi... Hendrix. Tommy said yes.. and that Bobby said Jimi was "too loud". Probably a joke, but he did confirm Jimi was in the band. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:52, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

It has emerged over the past few days that Bobby Taylor, for an unknown reason, had been promoting himself as being of the wrong age, with his claim that he had been born in 1934 (making him 83 years old at death). More and more sources (, New York Times, to name two) are now quoting a statement from his daughter (as well as referring to public records) in supporting an age at death of 78 and a birth year of 1939. I hope that, if it emerges that this new information is correct and fully sourceable, regular editors here will show due diligence and alter the text of the article to reflect this. Thanks.
