Bachman Turner Overdrive BTO
« on: July 22, 2016, 04:13:19 PM »
Bachman–Turner Overdrive[1] is a Canadian rock group from Winnipeg, Manitoba, that had a series of hit albums and singles in the 1970s, selling over 7 million albums in that decade alone. Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six US Top 40 singles (ten in Canada). The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, and has fans affectionately known as "gearheads"[2] (derived from the band's gear-shaped logo). Many of their songs, including "Let It Ride", "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet", "Takin' Care of Business", "Hey You" and "Roll On Down the Highway", still receive play on classic-rock stations.

After the band went into a hiatus in 2005, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner reunited in 2009 to tour and collaborate on a new album. In 2010, they played the halftime show at the Grey Cup in Edmonton, AB and continue to tour as of summer 2014.

On March 29, 2014, the classic Not Fragile line-up reunited for the first time since 1991 to mark Bachman–Turner Overdrive's induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and participated in performing in a tribute version of "Takin' Care of Business"

I'm a major fan of The Guess Who, So therefore  a big fan of Randy Bachman, who is a very underrated songwriter and guitar player. Long before Rush came along, Burton cummings and Randy bachman ruled Canada Rock and Roll. BTO was pretty damn good and had a few monster hits as well, but there is much more to their catalog than just those radio hits everybody knows.

Here is a little live representation.
