Cummings, Bachman reunion rumour

Aaron Harris / The Canadian Press Randy Bachman, left, and Burton Cummings of The Guess Who perform during the halftime show at the 88th Grey Cup game in Calgary on November 26, 2000. Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings are getting back together for a charitable cause. The former Guess Who bandmates, famous for their one-again, off-again musical partnership, will reunite for the first time in over a decade next month to support Canada's Walk of Fame.

Amid photos of his latest record purchases, Burton Cummings shared this tidbit on his Facebook account on Sunday, Dec. 8: “‘Rumour has it,’ that this might be a sight many people will see in 2020.” The photo attached was Randy Bachman and Cummings — the two kingpins of the Guess Who — celebrating an end to a concert as part of Bachman Cummings about a decade ago. The two have toured separately for the past several years but a reunion would spur another wave of Winnipeg nostalgia. Stay tuned.
