Bachman, who founded The Guess Who in 1965 and Bachman Turner Overdrive in 1972 will be performing hits from The Guess Who, Bachman Turner Overdrive, and other solo material. I can’t think of a more perfect setting for Randy, as The Troubadour has seen its share of star power for decades.
Hailed as one of Los Angeles’ most prized clubs, The Troubadour was the place that Elton John, Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, Neil Young, and James Taylor all made their U.S. debuts, and that was just in the 1960’s. This is the place where Cheech and Chong were discovered by Lou Adler, and Janis Joplin played her last gig. Even Led Zeppelin have performed here. Can you even imagine that? I can!
Bachman, in addition to his success with The Guess Who, also founded his second super-group, Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) shortly after leaving The Guess Who in the early 1970’s. His current repertoire is filled with classics from both bands, music from his latest tribute album to George Harrison, “By George By Randy”, and some of the best guitar playing this side of the U.S./Canadian border.
I’ve heard that Randy also regales his audiences with stories and memories from his early days, so this isn’t just another show, it’s an intimate look back at his past. When you combine that with his unique style of guitar playing, you’re going to be in for a great show. If you’re here in Los Angeles, you don’t want to miss this one. I surely won’t!
