About Bachman-Turner Overdrive

BachmanTurner Overdrive 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 catalog included five Top 40 albums and six Top 40 singles. The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, and has fans affectionately known as 'gearheads' (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 FM classic rock stations. After the band went into a hiatus in 2005, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner reunited in 2010 for a tour and collaboration on a new album. In 2010, they played the halftime show at the Grey Cup in Edmonton, AB. The precursor to BTO was the band Brave Belt, formed in Winnipeg in 1971 by Randy Bachman and Chad Allan, both formerly of The Guess Who, and drummer Robin 'Robbie' Bachman.
