INSIDE LOTTERIES A 2 TUESDAY, MAY 12, 2015 winnipegfreepress. com W HEN the news broke Sunday that a fire was consuming an apartment building on Bannatyne Avenue that is a symbol of Winnipeg rock ‘ n’ roll history, Guess Who I went looking for? No, not the Guess Who member who once lived there. Kurt Winter is dead. No, not Burton Cummings, who co- wrote the song So Long, Bannatyne , whose album cover features the band posing in front of the red- brick building. My old “ pal” Burton feels like he’s dead to me, even though he’s alive and as large as ever. He was playing Las Vegas Sunday, according to manager Lorne Saifer, and couldn’t be reached for comment. No, I didn’t personally try to find Burton, Greg Leskiw or Garry Peterson for that matter. No, I went looking for Jim Kale, one of the original members of the Guess Who on the So Long, Bannatyne album cover. And along the way, I took a side trip to a Facebook page that celebrates all of them and the city where they, and so many of us, grew up. . . . “ If you grew up in Winnipeg Manitoba you remember...” is pretty much what the title suggests — a call- out to anyone who was born and/ or raised here who feels the urge to connect with others who have similar memories of the good old days. It reads like a shout- out to boomers all over North America, if not the world, who like to hear the echo of the past. Basically, it’s an unabashed nostalgia fest. There are questions on the Facebook group’s web page that invite commentary. “ Anyone remember the local phone numbers starting with Edison, Whitehall, Chapel... etc.” And then, there are the revealingly wistful entries that harken back to a time of innocence and, perhaps, the ignorance that often accompanies that. “ How many of us remember the air raid sirens that used to be all over Winnipeg due to the Cold War! There was one in Frontenac School yard a block from the house I grew up in. Climbed to the top of it before the siren was installed on a dare & danced around on the platform... Stupid thing to do but I was about 8 years old & fearless then!” There’s even some social commentary based on the way it used to be, and some wish still was. “ I remember in the sixties my parents selling & buying Irish Sweepstake tickets. They were illegal in Canada as was off- track betting. Then in the seventies the federal & provincial governments realized there is some real money to be made and all at once it was legal. Now there are more lotteries than you can shake a stick at and all those casinos.” There’s also the opportunity the Facebook site offers to people such as former Free Press colleague, John White, who on Aug. 13, posted this: “ Eulogy for Lloyd White “ Play Hockey Night in Canada theme music “ Welcome everyone to the celebration of my dad, Lloyd White, and his fascinating life in Winnipeg...” As I learned, you didn’t have to grow up in Winnipeg to appreciate the place then. Kimberly McClelland, April 27: “ When I was a child we lived in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Every summer we would come to Winnipeg. We would meet my Granny at the Eaton’s store by the statue and then she would take me by bus to Assiniboine Park to ride on the little train and see the polar bears and have rainbow ice cream. My best childhood memories.” As I was suggesting earlier, not everything on the site is old news. Sometimes, people post breaking news, as someone did about the fire on Bannatyne. Although, for some, the nostalgia still connected with that news was almost as thick as the smoke billowing from the building. Not for the Guess Who guy I went looking for, though. . . . Jim Kale wasn’t home Sunday night when I knocked on his door in Norwood Flats. On Monday, he returned the message I left with his wife. He opened by saying he didn’t know about the fire. The ever- evolving version of the Guess Who he and Garry Peterson still play in has been on the road but won’t be playing much now until the summer, when they make a hometown appearance at the Red River Ex on June 17. “ I didn’t know Kurt when he lived there,” Jim said of the Bannatyne building. “ And I don’t know that I should be the one commenting on it.” He said he was never inside. “ It doesn’t really mean anything to me.” Actually, Jim isn’t a nostalgic kind of a guy, even though he makes his living from playing music for those who are. Maybe because going back to the roots of the Guess Who, before it was called that, Jim said there have been close to 60 guys who have played in the band and six of them are dead. “ One in a car accident, another by suicide.” “ That’s not very nostalgic,” I said. “ No kidding,” Jim responded. So why, if he didn’t have any feeling for the building on Bannatyne, the one on the 1971 Guess Who album cover, did I go looking for Jim Kale Sunday night? Because I couldn’t reach Burton Cummings, Garry Peterson or Greg Leskiw, even though Greg still resides here. I only know where Jim lives. He is the only one of the Guess Who originals who calls Winnipeg home. And that’s way more meaningful than waxing nostalgic. gordon. sinclair@ freepress. mb. ca GORDON SINCLAIR JR.
