Who Was Robbie Bachman?

Robbie Bachman, a 69-year old Canadian drummer, was the youngest brother to guitarist, singer and songwriter Randy Bachman. He was initially well-known because of his brother, but later, the world was amazed by his unique way of playing the drum.

Robbie began drumming at home as a young boy. He joined the band Brave Belt at age 18, which was later renamed Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO). He co-wrote “Roll On Down the Highway”, a song he wrote with Fred Turner, which reached number 14 in the US.

He remained with BTO until 1979. He left the group to join BTO after a while, but returned in 1988. As he grew older, his health began to decline.

They released several hit albums during their 70s glory days. “You Ain’t Seen Anything Yet” was the most popular single. It reached #1 in the US. There were also songs like “Taking Care of Business”, Miss You”, “You’re the One”, and “Roll On Down the Highway”.

Bachman-Turner Overdrive continued to tour with Randy Murray, the backup guitarist. Two new albums were released by the band with a new singer. These were Street Action 1978 and Rock ‘n’ roll nights 1979.

Although the band had many hits, they were not as successful as they hoped. They were criticised for their obsession with the US dollar. They were criticized for their touring schedule, which caused backlash against Canadian roots. The band was eventually disbanded in 2005.

The group reunited in 2010 with Fred Turner to record a new album. The new album was released in conjunction with a worldwide tour.
