Randy Bachman is quite simply the rock and roll heartbeat of Canada.

His has been a glorious life masterminding breakouts of two of the most iconic Canadian bands of all-time: Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO), and the Guess Who. Now Randy–promising you ain’t seen nothing yet—says, “Bachman-Turner Overdrive / BTO is back!”

•Over 40 Million records sold worldwide
•120 Gold Records
•#1 US Billboard Pop Single and Multi top 40 US Billboard hits
•Still doing 3 million monthly Spotify streams a month
•In 2000, Randy Bachman made a guest appearance on The Simpsons in a fictionalized reunion with BTO. During the episode Homer Simpson yells: “Get to the ‘working overtime’ part!” while they play “Takin’ Care of Business”
•Renowned Author Stephen King’s early pen name was Richard Bachman because King was a huge fan of BTO
•David Letterman’s favourite song is “Takin’ Care of Business” so much so that when Letterman attended Paul Shaffer’s opening Vegas show, Shaffer flew out Randy to perform the song for Letterman as a surprise

BTO’s origins began in 1970 when Randy, after co-writing such major Guess Who hits as “These Eyes,” “No Time,””Undun,” “Laughin’” and “American Woman.” left the Winnipeg-based group. Backed by its high-powered stage performances, Bachman-Turner Overdrive was a nuclear reactor of fuzz-toned aggression churning out such pounding signature tunes as “Takin’ Care Of Business,” “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.” “Gimme Your Money Please,” “Roll On Down The Highway,” and “Let It Ride” that begged for a cranked-up car radio, and a steering wheel to hit for hours on end.
