Born in Winnipeg, Randy Bachman has become a legendary figure in the rock n’ roll world through his talents as a guitarist, songwriter, performer and producer.
He has earned over 120 gold and platinum album/singles awards around the world for performing and producing. His songwriting has garnered him the coveted #1 spot on radio playlists in over 20 countries and he has amassed over 40 million records sold. His songs have been recorded by numerous other artists and placed in dozens of television, movie and commercial soundtracks.
Randy’s music has provided a veritable soundtrack of the last 30 years of popular music. His first hit, Shakin’ All Over, came in 1965 with his band The Guess Who, and scored him his first taste of radio success atop the Billboard charts. By 1970, The Guess Who had sold more records than the entire Canadian recording industry during that time, even outselling the Beatles that year. Their hits included These Eyes, Laughing, Undun, No Time, No Sugar Tonight and American Woman.
Randy left The Guess Who at the height of their success, but in 1970 he formed Brave Belt, a country rock outfit that eventually metamorphosized into Bachman-Turner Overdrive. And after being apart for over 20 years, Bachman & Turner was born. Their studio album, which was released around the world in 2010, was stocked with great new tracks that seamlessly fit among their classic rock anthems.
Bachman’s already expansive career continues to diversify. Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap, an award-winning radio program, which launched in 2005 on CBC, and airs on Sirius satellite radio, is heard by millions worldwide each week.
Now you can hear his music and his stories live at Centrepointe Theatres.
