The Guess Who Haunted Thumb
Classic Rock Legends, The Guess Who, have completed a new video to their song "Haunted" from their forthcoming new album.

The Guess Who is responsible for countless rock classics, which still retain a major presence on rock radio - "American Woman", "No Time", "These Eyes" etc. The band is set to return on September 14th with their latest album, 'The Future IS What It Used To Be', released via Cleopatra Records (available in CD, Vinyl, and Digital formats).

Fireworks Magazine and Rocktopia are very proud to present the official video for 'Haunted'

"I was boarding a flight from Toronto to Los Angeles and Burton Cummings happened to be on the flight. He had previously been saying nasty things about us during his shows and he looked quite horrified when he saw me. Then we boarded the flight and, as fate would have it, we discovered we were seat mates! The flight attendant even commented on how nice it was to see the both of us on the journey!

We've always taken the high road with this stuff for the simple reason that it's really childish folly. We only have one life to live so just live it and be happy. Anyway, I was very polite and so was he. Nothing really happened but it was a long flight, so I took out my writing book about halfway through. I overheard Burton telling the flight attendant that his mom had just passed away so that gave me the idea for the song. I wrote the line 'I'm haunted by a voice from the other side' and it went fairly quickly from there. I realized as the lyric was progressing that I was really writing about my experience with my own Mother, who died when I was 26. Although the word Haunted has a kind of dark connotation, the words are meant to be uplifting. People we love dearly never really leave us and as time goes on, you really come to appreciate what an amazing gift they were. So yes, Burton inspired the idea for the song, but had nothing to do with it in the end.

I came home a few days later and found this beautiful piano piece that I had messed around with. It had a classical theme with the Verse section in the key of G. It then modulates to Bb for the Pre-Chorus and finally G minor for the Chorus. I also used some classical style turnarounds for the musical people out there who care about this stuff. To me it sounded similar to a pretty hymn one would hear in church like the Ave Maria. Luckily, the lyric and the music formed a perfect marriage. I'd like to think my Mom had something to do with it." (Derek Sharp)
