On June 15th, Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman did a Canadian tour called "First Time Around"  These are two of the greatest Canadian Songwriters of all time;between the two of them there was The Guess Who (the original writers of "American Woman" for all you Lenny Kravitz fans) Bachman-Turner-Overdrive, and they both put out solo albums.  I love love LOVE their music.  I have loved it ever since I was a little girl and my dad gave me a Guess Who cassette tape and I put it in my Barbie Walkman and played it to death.  ANywho, they came to Saskatoon, and I went with my parents to their concert (They are aging hipsters by the way - both Burton, Randy, and My parents!)  I made my mom and dad t-shirts, and created a skirt named.... The Burton Cummings Skirt!!  After the concert, which ROCKED, I waited at the back door of the auditorium for an hour and a half, made friends with the security guards and when Burton Cummings got into his car, and it started driving up to the tour bus, I stood in front of it waving my Sharpie, and he stopped the driver and got out and SIGNED MY SKIRT!!!  WEEE!!  I've never been like this for anyone, but I lose around those old hippies!  (No I don't have a daddy complex; I am just in worship of their music) So, anyway.. on to the pictures! Thanks for any comments! 2nd Post guys!  -Lisa

My mom and dad - can you believe they're both 50??

Me being REALLY excited!


 I used an inkjet transfer to put Burton's Face on my skirt! Let me know if you know of The Guess Who, BTO, Burton Cummings or Randy Bachman; their music is AMAZING!

I really like the style of the skirt too! It looks so good! And I'm glad you had fun at the concert  Cheesy I have some family in Saskatoon. And my grandma has this whole story about how her brother was going to be the singer for The Guess Who and his mom wouldn't let him go. You know, I don't know whether or not to believe her. But it's an interesting story nonetheless. But anyways, the shirts are really well done and your story made my smile too  Grin

I knew the name... it just took google to remind me; he wrote "I can hear you calling" that was performed by Three Dog Night (Another fave of mine)  and he was a guitarist for The Guess Who; I didn't know he was also the guitarist for Bush! He was just one of those ultra-talented people!  Did you inherit some of his talent?  Cheesy
