I am "taking care of business" right now but I really prefer their predecessor group. "Guess who" that is?

Was their "Share the Land" album recorded before he quit or after he left?

That album was recorded after Bachman’s departure.

Bachman was a member of Guess Who before Burton Cummings joined.

In reading this article, I was shocked at the animosity Bachman had toward Burton Cummings years ago. Apparently that was the main factor in pushing him to make BTO a successful band. Obviously they reconciled long ago.

Although Neil Young was born in Toronto, his parents were from Manitoba, and his mother moved to Winnipeg after their divorce. Neil later moved there and became part of that city’s music scene for a while before decamping to California.

Did you know, Neil Young actually formed a group with the late great Rick James?

James was AWOL from the US military at the time.
