Bachman-Turner Overdrive Bio

Bachman–Turner Overdrive is a Canadian rock group from Winnipeg, Manitoba, that had a string of hit albums and singles in the 1970s, selling over 7 million albums in Canada in that decade. Their 1970s catalog included five Top 40 albums and six Top 40 singles. The band has sold over 20 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.

The pronunciation is an example of a speech pattern known as Canadian Shift. It has become so widespread, especially on American radio, that the band no longer makes the correction, and both pronunciations have become acceptable.

After the band went into a hiatus in 2005, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner reunited in 2010 for a tour and collaboration on new songs. In 2010, they played the halftime show at the Grey Cup in Edmonton, AB.
