I've read that a lot of Left-Pondian folk thought The Guess Who wrote 'Shakin' All Over'. Similar in Australia too, where it was covered to great success. One of the finest British R&R songs of all time.
The video I posted shows the later, more influential Pirates ( Green, Spence & Farley ( with Patto in a few pics ) ). It was Joe Moretti playing the lead on the original, and the drum break came about because Clem Cattini couldn't count!. Clem went on to become one the most recorded British drummers ever, Joe went on to play with folk like Gene Vincent as a guitarist for hire, among other things.
Burton once called Randy and Fred "Bachmann Turner Overweight".
I remember that.
Sounded a lot like sour grapes, at the time.
Randy Bachman is a great songwriter, guitarist, and astute businessman.
He’s, uh, immensely more successful than his Guess Who bandmates.
I’m glad he and BC “kissed and made up”.
Burton has that Diva thing going on.
I remember when every cover band in the world played "no time".
No Sugar Tonight was big in my ‘hood.
Good easily played lead.
Excellent band for singles. My only album is the one w " Heartbroken Bopper ". Which would have made a great one.
Burt seemed to have a chip on his shoulder about them not being held in as high regard as other bands of the time. I think it was they were precieved as a singles band in album times. What albums stand out ?
Wheatfield Soul, Canned Wheat, American Woman are all great!
The albums hold up real well, IMO.
The songwriting on the Bachman era stuff is better, IMO.
All their guitar players were good after RB left.
They were a singles band, but they were all good musicians, too!
Didn't they also do Stand Tall?
At least some incarnation of them?
Yup, not one of their best, IMO.
I like Dancing Fool.
It’s kinda dumb, but Dominic Troiano tears it up on guitar.
Stand Tall is a Burton Cummings solo tune.
Guess who's not putting sugar in their coffee tonight?
I don't think anyone in Australia thinks The Guess Who wrote it. They'd be more likely to believe it was Normie Rowe. The Guess Who are basically only known here for American Woman.
A list of the greatest rock singers of all time would be incomplete without Burton Cummings.
What a goofy, awkward clip......LOVE IT!
Yep, that's Australian TV from the 1960's...
Y'all who are on the Face of Books, ought to look up Burton's page. Burton is regularly posting up old stories of life on the road and etc. It's fun stuff, and he seems like a pretty happy and gregarious guy in these later years.
Burton is a true rock'n'roll survivor, one of the best composers ever in the genre, with a singularly great voice. I'm glad he's still around to tell some tales.
