With all the recent Guess Who reunion hype going on, I've started buying up all the old Guess Who albums. They were mostly recorded with Jim Kale on bass, who really had some great melodic parts like on "These Eyes", "Undun", "Laughing", etc. His tone is also one of my favourite types of tone - Fender P bass with flats (sometimes with a pick too!). Together with Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings and Garry Peterson, they really created some great classics. These days, Jim has had a lot of personal problems so isn't involved in the current reunion, but instead they are using his original replacement, Bill Wallace who is also a great old school player. He didn't record too much with them since he only came in near the end of the band's original run, but I heard him play on the recent tour and he was great! They brought him out of musical retirement - he's been working as a school teacher - to go back out on the road. I guess their new live album comes out this week that chronicles the reunion tour. That was certainly one of the best shows I've ever seen. They are the Canadian equivalent to the Beatles, so it was a great thrill to hear those legendary players in person! I certainly grew up hearing lots of Guess Who songs on the radio so I'm sure I've been influenced heavily by those guys and have shaped my taste in bass tones and lines. Anybody else out there appreciate Kale and Wallace?
