Edward Bear (blues, rock, pop)

Toronto based band The Edward Bear Revue, later Edward Bear, was formed in 1966 by singer and percussionist Larry Evoy and bassist Craig Hemming. The name is derived from A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh, whose "proper" name is Edward Bear. At first the band had a bluesy, rock sound; at one point they opened for Led Zeppelin. The band signed with Capitol Records in 1969 with a lineup of Evoy, guitarist/vocalist Danny Marks and keyboardist/vocalist Paul Weldon. Their sound moved toward blues and pop. They released an album, Bearings, that year. Their single, "You, Me and Mexico", was a Top 5 hit in Canada and charted well in the United States. The band had its biggest hit in 1973, when "Last Song" charted at #1 in Canada and peaked at #3 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Edward Bear won a Juno Award in 1973 for outstanding group performance, and disbanded in 1974.
