About The Guess Who

The Guess Who are a Canadian rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Initially gaining recognition in Canada, they also found international success from the late 1960s through the mid-1970s with numerous hit singles, including 'American Woman', 'These Eyes' and 'Share the Land'. Several former members of The Guess Who, notably Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman (of BachmanTurner Overdrive), have also found considerable success outside the band. The band was inducted into The Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1987. The Guess Who started out as a local Winnipeg band formed by singer/guitarist Chad Allan in 1958 and initially called Al and the Silvertones. This was changed to Chad Allan & the Reflections by 1962, by which point the band consisted of Chad Allan (vocals/guitar), Bob Ashley (keyboards), Randy Bachman (guitars), Jim Kale (bass), and Garry Peterson (drums).
