Randy Bachman - as a founding member of legendary Winnipeg rockers The Guess Who - felt the rush of overnight success when American Woman became the first-ever single by a Canadian band to hit #1 in the US. When Bachman left the band at the peak of their popularity to pursue solo projects, some questioned his logic - but fast-forward to '74, and Randy was back at the top of the charts with BTO, rocking audiences around the world with a slew of instantly iconic hits.
Taking us on a journey from his formative years through to today, this is the epic story of one of the few artists to ever hit #1 in two separate bands, and how Randy Bachman’s singular focus of making great music has kept him relevant for over five decades.
