JGM is saddened to learn of the passing of Spencer Bouvier Taylor III, drummer and singer with the legendary quartet the Highway QCs.
Born in November 1966, Bouvier (“Boo”) graduated from high school with four scholarship offers but preferred to travel with the Highway QCs instead. “I always wanted to be on the road,” he told his father Spencer Taylor Jr.’s biographers Noah Schaffer and Dr. Veryl Howard. “In fact, when we were kids coming up, we used to play this game we called ‘Gospel Singers.’ Every night before we would go to bed, we would act like we were groups on the road. . .Me and Fuzzy (Lynn Taylor) had a cardboard box and we pretended it was our tour bus.”
Later, Bouvier took over the business management and booking of the group and, with family members, opened a bus company called Taylor Brothers Transportation.
Homegoing details will be forthcoming when available. In the meantime, please join us in extending sympathies to the family, friends, and many fans of Spencer Bouvier Taylor III as well as the Taylor and Highway QCs family.
