Music Groups - Guess Who, The

Canadian 60s and 70s rock group best known for their hits "These Eyes", "No Time" and "American Woman". Original name was "Chad Allan and The Expressions" (Allan later replaced by Burton Cummings), but single "Shakin' All Over" was released with only "Guess Who?" on the sleeve in the hopes people would think it was a new Beatles record. "Guess Who" name eventually stuck.

1 Without Burton, there is no Guess Who. I don't understand why he never acquired the rights to the Guess Who name, otherwise there wouldn't have been a bogus Guess Who going around. I remember seeing that album in the stores and I knew that there was something fishy about it. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on November 14, 2012, 10:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 One of my favorite groups, but did they ever BONE! What's worse is they weren't totally forthright about it. I could deal with the numerous lineup changes up and through 1975, as long as Burton Cummings was still out front. The quality of their music, and their ability to play, was still quite good. However, once Cummings departed and albums continued to be made under The Guess Who name, which sounded NOTHING like The Guess Who, they really let their fans down. In the 1990s, I purchased a CD called "Lonely One", which I believed was a Guess Who reunion CD. No lineup was listed on the back (red flag right there). I open this thing up and notice only the original bassist (Jim Kale) and drummer (Gary Peterson) played on it. No Burton. No Randy Bachman. No Donnie MacDougall. Nobody who's name you'd recognize. Then I listened to it and it was a sorry excuse for a synth pop CD. Nothing anyone would consider to be "classic rock". Not a single redeeming track. I wrote the fly-by-night record company (Intersound) a nasty letter accusing them of false advertising. I couldn't unload that paper weight fast enough. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 11:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
