Canadian musician Burton Cummings is best known as the lead singer for rock band The Guess Who, but he has also enjoyed a successful solo career.
During his stint with The Guess Who he sang on many memorable songs like "American Woman," "No Time," "Share the Land," "Star Baby" and "These Eyes."
After 10 years with the band Cummings left to become a solo artist. His songs included "Stand Tall," which was his biggest solo hit in America. Other hits followed including "I'm Scared," "Break It to Them Gently" and "Fine State of Affairs."
Cummings released a total of eight solo albums and collections from 1976 to 1990. In 1997 he released a live compilation album of his solo performances entitled "Up Close and Alone."
In 2000 Cummings, Randy Bachman, and original drummer Garry Peterson toured as The Guess Who. Bassist Jim Kale played one show and former Guess Who members Donnie McDougall and Bill Wallace rejoined the lineup through the remainder of the tour. The reformed Guess Who toured with Cummings from 2000 through to the summer of 2003.
Cummings also plays occasional shows with Bachman as The Bachman-Cummings Band and makes occasional appearances at various Canadian venues as a solo performer. The Bachman-Cummings Band released an album called "Jukebox," which features cover songs from artists like Bob Dylan and The Beatles.
