The Guess Who had a lot in common with the other Canadian bands that it paved the way for. Significantly more popular in their own country than they were in the U.S., they hold the distinction of becoming the first band from Canada to make serious headway South of the border. Ironically their first and only number one hit was the song “American Woman” which actually put down America more than it praised it. Regardless, they had a decent run with their Bluesy Rock sound and had philosophical differences between the principle members (Burton Cummings & Randy Bachman) not occurred they would have likely gone further. Now, if the Hall adds the solo work of Burton and the guitar driven biker rock of B.T.O. to the sum than they would have a decent shot. Chances are; it won’t work that way.
