An ultra rare interview with Canadian rock legend, Burton Cummings.


Recorded on location after a rockin’ performance, Burton Cummings former lead singer of The Guess Who, joins Colin and Marty for a rare backstage interview. Burton is one of the best voices in rock and roll and known for singing hits like These Eyes, No Time and American Woman. Colin and Marty dig into Burton’s past and talk about The Deverons, rare records, comic book collecting and Burton’s new, upcoming projects.

(This interview was recorded backstage, outdoors at a Classic Rock festival so there is a bit of crowd noise but thats what makes this show so special.)
