Following his 1970 departure from the Guess Who, guitarist Randy Bachman recorded a solo album (Axe) and planned a project with ex-Nice keyboardist Keith Emerson (later canceled due to illness) before forming Bachman-Turner Overdrive in 1972. Originally called “Brave Belt,” the metal group was comprised of singer/guitarist Bachman, fellow Guess Who alum Chad Allan, bassist C.F. “Fred” Turner, and Randy’s brother, drummer Robbie; after a pair of LPs (Brave Belt I and Brave Belt II), Allan was replaced by another Bachman brother, guitarist Tim, and in homage to the trucker’s magazine Overdrive, the unit became BTO.Read More

Ben Davies called Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s first album a “fusion of Lynyrd Skynyrd-style Southern/trucker rock and ZZ Top’s anthemic arena rock,” and with their logo imprinted in a big metallic gear which looks like it inspired James Cameron’s Terminator trademark, Randy Bachman, his brothers Tim and Robbie, and C.F. Turner dish out a methodical mix of plodding hard dirges.Read More
