Bachman said, ”After a very long time Bachman-Turner Overdrive/BTO is back on the rock and roll highway and kicking it into OVERDRIVE! Full tilt pedal to the metal rock and roll is back to melt your face and rock your soul.”

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: BTO and the Guess Who. Bachman is now promising you ain’t seen nothing yet.

The band has over 40 million records sold worldwide, 120 Gold Records, #1 US Billboard Pop Single and Multi top 40 US Billboard hits, and still doing three million monthly Spotify streams a month.

In 2000, 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 favorite song is “Takin’ Care of Business”so much so that when Letterman attended Paul Shaffer’s opening Vegas show, Shaffer flew out Bachman to perform the song for Letterman as a surprise

BTO’s origins began in 1970 when Bachman, 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.

In his home country, Bachman has received the Order of Canada, the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, 11 JUNO awards, the SOCAN Lifetime Achievement Award, and is a double-inductee in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
