Beau-Marks, others also inducted.
Canadian rock icons Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings of the Guess Who joined a list of inductees into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame last night (Feb. 8) in Toronto.
Bachman and Cummings, who performed an extended version of the Guess Who hit "No Sugar," were presented their award by another music legend, Gordon Lightfoot. In a joking tribute to his partner, Bachman said of Cummings: "He was born to be wild, and I was born to be mild."
Other inductees during the evening included '50s rock band the Beau-Marks for "Clap Your Hands"; Quebec star Claude Leveillee, "Frederic"; Buffy Sainte-Marie, "Universal Soldier"; ragtime pioneer Shelton Brooks, "Some of These Days" and "Darktown Strutter's Ball"; and western songwriter Bob Nolan for "Cool Water."
