History

Early years

The Guess Who started out as a local Winnipeg band in 1960 called Chad Allan and the Reflections (later changed to Chad Allan and the Expressions). All the band members were born in Winnipeg. 1960 (MCMLX) was a leap year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1960 calendar). ... Chad Allan (né Allan Kowbel, born March 29, 1943) is a Canadian musician and founding member of Chad Allan and The Silvertones. ...


Chad Allan and the Expressions signed with Quality Records in 1962 and released several flop singles before releasing their first hit, a 1965 rendition of Johnny Kidd's "Shakin' All Over" which reached No. 1 in Canada and No. 22 in the U.S. However, in an attempt to build a mystique around the record, Quality Records credited the single only to "Guess Who?" It was hoped that some listeners might assume the "Guess Who?" identity was deliberately masking several famous performers working under a pseudonym -- given the "beat group" nature of the record, perhaps even members of The Beatles. 1962 (MCMLXII) was a common year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1962 calendar). ... 1965 (MCMLXV) was a common year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1965 calendar). ... Shakin All Over is a famous rock and roll song from the 1960s. ... A pseudonym (Greek pseudo + -onym: false name) is an artificial, fictitious name, also known as an alias, used by an individual as an alternative to a persons true name. ... The Beatles were an English rock band from Liverpool whose members were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. ...


It is debatable as to whether anyone was really fooled by this ruse, or if the record would have been a hit regardless of the artist credit. But what did end up happening was that, even after Quality Records revealed the band was 'really' Chad Allan and the Expressions, disc jockeys still announced the group as Guess Who?, effectively forcing the band to rename themselves. So on their first two albums the band was credited as both Guess Who? and Chad Allan and The Expressions. The Guess Who is a Canadian rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba, that was one of the first to establish a major successful following in their own country while still residing there. ...


Success

The immediate follow-ups to "Shakin' All Over" met with major success in Canada, but very little success elsewhere. Subsequently, Burton Cummings joined the band as keyboardist and co-lead vocalist (with Chad Allan in late 1965. This line-up only lasted for a few months before Chad Allan left, making Cummings the new full-time lead singer. At this point, the band's name became The Guess Who? (The question mark would finally be dropped in 1968.) Image File history File links Guess_Whoposter. ... Burton Cummings, OM, D.Mus (born December 31, 1947) is a Canadian musician and songwriter. ...


As the group's lineup changed, so did their sound. Cummings and guitarist Randy Bachman were now the band's main composers, and they moved away from Merseybeat-inspired rock to a sound that mixed rock, blues, and jazz. The 1969 ballad "These Eyes" was the group's first Top 10 US hit for their new label RCA Records. By the beginning of the 1970s, they had moved toward an edgier hard-rock sound with the album American Woman, the title track for which, "American Woman" (coupled with its B-side "No Sugar Tonight") was the group's only No. 1 hit in the U.S. The Top 10 US hit "No Time" also dates from this time. Randoph Charles Bachman, OM (born September 27, 1943) was lead guitarist and songwriter of the 1970s rock band, The Guess Who, and later formed the famous hard rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive with his brothers Robbie Bachman, drums, Tim Bachman, rhythm guitar and friend Fred Turner on bass and lead...

Lifestyle differences led Bachman to leave the group during their unfinished 1970 album The Way They Were, return to Winnipeg, and form Brave Belt, which eventually evolved into the supergroup Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Bachman was replaced by two guitarists, fellow Winnipeggers Kurt Winter from the band Brother, and Greg Leskiw. Winter became the main songwriting collaborator with Cummings, and The Guess Who continued with more hit singles such as "Share The Land", "Hand Me Down World", "Hang On to Your Life" and "Albert Flasher".

Kurt Winter (April 2, 1946 - December 14, 1997} was a Canadian guitarist. ...


In 1972, they recorded their highly acclaimed album "Live at the Paramount" which was recorded at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. This preceded an overseas tour in November-December 1972 to Japan, New Zealand and Australia. Paramount Theater in Seattle The Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington is a 2,803-seat performing arts venue on the north edge of Downtown. ...


Leskiw left the band in 1972, to be replaced by Don McDougall, and bassist Jim Kale left in 1973 after his lifestyle could no longer support touring. Winter's former bandmate Bill Wallace came in to take over bass duties. Cummings, Wallace and Winter wrote the Guess Who's last big hit, "Clap For The Wolfman", which was an homage to disc jockey Wolfman Jack, who incidentally, lent his own voice to the recording before McDougal and Winter left in 1974. Domenic Troiano would then become the new lead guitarist for the band, and Cummings' chief songwriting collaborator.

The Guess Who broke up in 1975. Cummings then went on to forge a successful solo career. See also: 1970s in music. ...


Reformations

After the initial break-up, one-time Guess Who bassist Jim Kale, on tour in Kenora, Ontario, found out from Cummings and Bachman that the name "The Guess Who" had never been registered. He promptly drove back to Winnipeg to register it, and maintains control of the band name to this day. Kenora re-directs here. ...


Beginning in 1978, a 'reformed' Guess Who featuring Kale and other Guess Who alumni (but not Cummings, Bachman or Allan) began touring and recorded an album called "Guess Who's Back" to minimal attention. Another studio album followed in 1979.


In 1983, Bachman, Cummings, Jim Kale and Garry Peterson (the "American Woman" line-up) reunited as The Guess Who to play a series of gigs and record the Together Again live album and video. Jim Kale (born Michael James Kale, 11 August 1943, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) was a bassist for the popular band, The Guess Who. ... Garry Peterson began drumming at the age of three and has been the drummer for the Canadian rock band, The Guess Who, ever since its inception in the mid-1960s. ...


After this reunion, Bachman and Cummings resumed their solo work, and Kale resumed touring with various musicians under The Guess Who banner. A new Guess Who studio album with vocalist Terry Hatty was released in 1995, but virtually no attention was paid to it in the mainstream press, and the few reviews of the album were almost all overwhelmingly negative. Terry Hatty, former singer of the Guess Who, has done an immense amount of stage and show work in Canada. ...


In May 1997[1] with their hometown of Winnipeg facing a potential disaster flood that had already taken cities south of the border, Bachman and Cummings reunited in Winnipeg for the first time in 10 years in an emotional fund raiser for disaster relief organized by Tom Jackson. During the concert it began to rain, then thunder, then lightning. Through the rain Cummings kept singing (while the band crew tried to cover things in plastic), at one point Cummings acknowledging that if the audience didn't leave he wouldn't either, and he didn't until the lightning started to strike. It was a temporary pause though and the concert continued a short time later.


In 1999, Cummings, Bachman, Peterson and Kale reunited once again, with the band leasing the rights to the Guess Who Name from Kale. This led to a cross-Canada and US tour for the band beginning in 2000, although health issues of Kale's precluded his involvement. Nevertheless, he received a share of the bands earnings, and replacement Bill Wallace was paid out of other members' shares. A live album & DVD release followed the tour. Both the tour & subsequent live releases were warmly received by fans & critics.


In 2001, the band received honorary doctorates at Brandon University in Brandon, Manitoba. For lead vocalist Cummings, it was a privilege to receive the doctorate, since he did not graduate from high school. That same year the group was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame. Brandon University is a Canadian university located in the city of Brandon, Manitoba with an enrolment of 3383 (2005) full-time and part-time students. ... Brandon Manitoba, a city in southwestern Manitoba, Canada. ...


In 2004, Kale once again started touring with his version of the Guess Who (referred to as the "Klones" by Cummings). This version of the group, currently (2007) including original drummer Garry Peterson, continues to play scattered dates, all in the USA.


While still also performing individually and with their own bands, Bachman and Cummings, backed by Toronto's Carpet Frogs, have been touring together since 2005. Having failed to win the rights to use the Guess Who name, they have adopted the moniker Bachman Cummings. Bachman stated in a CBC interview (February 7, 2005) that it was unlikely he and Cummings would ever again tour as The Guess Who.


On April 25, 2006, Bachman Cummings performed hits from The Guess Who, and solo careers at Club 279 in the Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto in front of a small crowd of about 150 to 200 people. This concert was not open to the public - one had to be invited or win tickets. A performance on CBC televison that same year was relased as a DVD, entitled First Time Around. Also in 2006, a CD entitled Bachman Cummings Songbook was released, a "best of" culled from the combined Guess Who, BTO and Burton Cummings catalogues. Hard Rock Cafe is a chain of casual dining restaurants. ...


In 2007, Bachman & Cummings released an album of new recordings titled Jukebox, which covers tracks by some of their favourite artists from the 1960s. The track selsction includes a new, laid-back recording of their own Guess Who hit, "American Woman". Jukebox is the first studio album from Canadian rock legends Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings under the Bachman & Cummings name. ...
