Guess who received their first Gold Record for "These Eyes" on June 25, 1969.
Who's on first.
Guess who, or it may be The Guess Who
Road food.....I see you walkin' down the hallway....
In my all time top five bands. These Eyes is a wonderful song.
BTW OP, you live anywhere near the San Tan brewpub there?
the 1st album I ever bought was "the best of the guess who". wore the grooves off it.
I heard Albert Flasher the other day.
Man, it's been years!
Still liked it.
Still have no clue what Burton is talking about.
I can pull in several Canadian FM stations, so I get to hear a lot of Guess Who and Burton Cummings songs. Pretty nice.
Supposedly it was a warm up exercise that Cummings used to do on his piano and he turned it into a song after a warning light came on in a radio studio while he was being interviewed. The light was an "alert flasher" of some sort and he just went nuts with lyrics from there. Great song. I wore out a few Guess Who albums back in the day. They were one of favorites for a long time.
I loved These Eyes
Did you know American Woman was an anti Viet Nam War song
Burton is alive and well living in MooseJaw Saskatchewan
I saw Randy perform this spring in Saskatoon
He had been Touring with Lynyrd Skynyrd as the opening act
They always had great guitar players.
Randy Bachman, Kurt Winter (RIP) and Dominic Troiano (RIP).
Brilliant song writing and arranging, too!
I always wanted to be able to sing These Eyes.....well.
Undun is one of my all time favorites......
No Sugar Tonight; American Woman; These Eyes; etc. They had some great tunes.
The full version. I swear that I once heard a studio version of this, but if I did it is nowhere to be found.
Also, forget Eddie Vedder's attempt at it. Shameful IMHO.
Listen to Burton Cummings and then listen to Neil Young and you think wtf
I listen to them both and think, "What a great singer!.....and the other's a great songwriter!" I'll let you figure out which is which!
Just came across this......kinda fitting!
loved em as the guess who and then enjoyed bachman turner for many years after that...
a few years ago, a friend who is a fine keyboard player and I worked up "no sugar tonight/new mother nature". man, that song is ridiculously fun to play! we worked on it and got it sounding good. it rocks hard. 1970 forever, man.
nowadays, whenever i'm driving around and a guess who song comes on the radio, I am always impressed with the bass playing on those songs, now that I have a stereo that's good enough to actually pick it out.
Saw Burton and Randy in Halifax a few years back, outstanding. Still outstanding. Even bought the overpriced t-shirt.
