Kurt Winter
Kurt Winter played lead guitar in the Canandian-based band “The Guess Who” after Randy Bachman departed. The band had already racked-up a slew of hits and was coming off the classic “American Woman” when Winter hooked-up. Winters first effort with the band was the album “Share The Land” which featured two of his compositions: “Bus Rider” and “Hand Me Down World”. In June of 71 they released “So Long Bannatyne” which yielded “Rain Dance”. “Rockin” released in 1972 did not chart a hit single although “Guns, Guns, Guns” provided a “bit of a bash”. They bounced back in May of 1972 with “Live at the Paramount” which really kicked some ass. Their other popular record was 1974’s “Road Food” which had two hit singles: “Star Baby” and “Clap For The Wolfman”. After “Road Food” Kurt left the band. Suffering from bleeding ulcers he died of liver failure on December 15th, 1997 at the age of 51.
