You could hear Shania Twain sing "Whose star have your boots been under?" How about Alanis Morissette belt out 'Walk Away' or maybe Neil Young serve up a portion of 'Devil's Sidewalk' from his 'Greendale' album? Or, in the case of the newest inductee, "Stand tall, don't you fall..."
Burton Cummings -- best known for his work in the legendary rock troupe the Guess Who -- was announced today (June 28) as one of eight "Canadian icons" to join Canada's Walk of Fame.
Cummings will be honoured in a special ceremony Oct. 1 at Toronto's Elgin Theatre alongside the late author Mordecai Richler, actors Sandra Oh and Ryan Reynolds, comedian Russell Peters, tennis legend Daniel Nestor and Dr. and astronaut Roberta Bondar.
Cummings -- who was previously inducted into the Walk of Fame as a member of the Guess Who -- plays Toronto's Massey Hall on Sept. 29 as part of festivities leading up to the induction ceremony.
The singer released his last studio album, 'Above the Ground,' in 2008 but spent much of May touring Canada as part of his 'Your Backyard' tour. Cummings also has a handful of U.S. dates slated for July.
