Music: Bachman & Turner
Bachman & Turner unite for new album and world tour in 2010
Giants Of Rock Music, Randy Bachman & Fred Turner, Back Together; Ready To Take Care Of Business
WINNIPEG, MB-- Randy Bachman and Fred Turner have announced they are currently in the studio recording a new album of original material to be released in 2010 through E1 Music Canada and embark on a world-wide tour, kicking off at the Sweden Rock Festival on June 12, 2010.
Over a four year run Bachman and Turner (as leaders of BTO) earned a staggering 120 platinum, gold and silver disks notching up hits in over 20 countries. The hard rock quartet reached #1 on both the Billboard singles and album charts as well as placing a half dozen more songs in the Top 50. “Takin’ Care of Business”, “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet”, “Let It Ride”, “Roll On Down the Highway”, “Hey You”, “Blue Collar”, “Not Fragile”, “Four Wheel Drive”, “Looking Out For #1”, “My Wheels Won’t Turn” all classic rock anthems written by Bachman and Turner.
After they split in the mid ‘80s, Randy and Fred went their separate ways, Randy to a solo career, the much-celebrated Guess Who reunion followed by Bachman-Cummings, as well as establishing himself as a jazz artist and radio personality (Randy’s Vinyl Tap on CBC and Sirius satellite radio is heard by millions worldwide each week). Fred carried on with the other members of Bachman-Turner Overdrive before retiring from music at the end of the ‘90s.
What brought the two rock icons together after so many years? “The music,” Randy explains. “I was recording my own album with the intention of featuring different vocalists. I asked Fred to sing on this killer track, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Is the Only Way Out,” and it grew from there. It evolved quite naturally and organically into a Bachman & Turner album.”
“I’m thrilled to be working on new music with Fred,” enthuses Randy, “and feel a sense of excitement and anticipation. I feel like I’m coming full circle with a completeness that I never ever thought I’d feel again. It’s incredible!”
Bachman & Turner is not about reliving old glories; Randy and Fred are motivated by a sincere desire to make new music. “If I had a chance to go out and play new things and grow, then I’ll be offering people something,” offers Fred. It’s all about the music, the creative process, collaboration and teamwork of two old friends and partners. Nothing contrived. Reunited, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner are offering their legion of fans something new and taking care of some ‘unfinished’ business as well.
If you thought Bachman & Turner would never appear again - You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
