The Guess Who
Canadian by origin, the band quickly gained fame in America during the 1960’s and early 70’s. The Guess Who emerged from an existing band, Chad Allan and Randy Bachman’s ‘The Expressions’. Along with Garry Peterson, Jim Kale, and pianist Bob Ashley, ‘The Expressions’ covered a song by Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, “Shakin’ All Over” which became an instant hit in Canada, along with reaching the US Top 40. Seeing this as a green light, The Expressions proceeded with recording an entire album by the same name. Its then record company, Quality, released it with their name as “Guess Who?” in an attempt to trick customers into believing that this album was actually by a famous, international group that wanted to remain anonymous. By this point, Burton Cummings had replaced Ashley as keyboardist as well as vocalist, who would later on become band lead after Allan would leave.
Gradual Rise to Fame
Despite launching a British tour right after the success of their album, they gained little recognition in the UK, and returned to Canada to work on Allan’s TV show. It was only after the band released “These Eyes” that they were propelled to the US Top 10s. A producer, Jack Richardson, saw so much promise in the boys, that he mortgaged his house to pay for their next album, Wheatfield Soul’s recording. Canned Wheat Pack, its title single, hit the Top 40 singles mark in 1969.
In 1970, the Guess Who released a well-rounded, clever single, “American Woman”, which ironically became a US chart-topper despite its playful putting down of America. It also allowed for their album (titled after this song) to become their first gold album, allowing for the group to perform for President Nixon at the White House.
In 1970, Bachman retired from the band too, and was replaced by Kurt Winter and Greg Leskiw with whom the title track of their next album, “Share the Land” was released. It made it to the Top Ten later that year and was succeeded by a considerable number of charted successes afterwards. “Clap for the Wolfman” was the group’s last big success in 1974, after which Cummings officially broke up the band and tried a solo career.
Where are the Guess Who now?
Since then, the band has made extremely exclusive appearances on-stage, which has made their performances and concerts a rare treat for fans of 70’s rock and roll. As a result, their tours have become the only opportunity on which fans can experience the Guess Who magic for themselves, especially younger ones who may have not been around the first time.
As of the beginning of 2017, majority of the band’s original line-up has come together for a number of US shows, including ‘Rock of the 70’s’ and a joint-concert with ‘The River Band’. Along with these, they have scheduled a few individual performances in select cities for which The Guess Who tickets have been made available.
Guess Who 2017
While performing a gig at the Rock the Lake Music Festival in Wisconsin, Guess Who has catered to a unique crowd. Along with a considerable number of baby boomers and folding chairs, groups of school and college students also grooved along to The Guess Who’s set list. Out of the band’s original line-up, Garry Peterson and Jim Kale graced the stage at this particular gig and Burton Cummings’ position was filled by a new guitarist and singer.
The show proved a cathartic crowd-pleaser for the audience, as Guess Who’s older members recounted their personal anecdotes over the years. Peterson spoke about seventy years of playing drums for the band, and what that meant. Elderly audience members in particular enjoyed this reminiscing since it took them back to their younger days. If anything, this concert proved that the Guess Who has still got it; that its original members are still as able to rock the stage as they were all those years ago
