    Edward Bear

    They are a Canadian folk-rock group from Toronto formed by Craig Hemming and Larry Evoy along with the members Paul Weldon and Danny Marks.  The group was given the name Edward Bear in 1966 in Toronto, Canada which came from the name of a pet bear in Winnipeg that was the inspiration for A.A. Milne and his fictional bear, Winnie the Pooh.  They saw success with their chart singles "You, Me and Mexico", "Close Your Eyes" and "Last Song".  They received a Juno Award for "Outstanding Performance - Group" in 1973. They appeared in The Rock Pile along with Paul Butterfield and Led Zeppelin.  After the break-up there were rumours that the band were reforming, but it never came to fruition.
