Musician Releases Autobiography

WINNIPEG, CANADA -- What more can a musician want for his 57th birthday than a brand-new biography? In an interview with Winnipeg Sun reporter John Kendle, this is exactly what LDS-singer and guitarist Randy Bachman discussed on his own birthday.

Reflecting on the last year, Bachman was quoted as having said that it "has certainly been the greatest year I've the last 12 or 14 years." And to top off the year, the past member of Bachman-Turner Overdrive and the Guess Who travelled from his home in White Rock, BC to Winnipeg to promote his new autobiography.

"Randy Bachman: Takin' Care of Business (McArthur &Co., $34.95)" took two years to make, documents Bachman's life from birth this year's Guess Who concert at Canwest Global Park on Canada Day weekend, and according to Bachman tells the truth without regards for other's feelings.

"I hurt my own feelings, reading it back and realizing some of the things I'd said about myself."

A lot of the material in the book is set in Winnipeg, where Bachman grew up and where his bands called home. But there's some unfamiliar content, such as his health and emotional problems shortly after he break-up of the Guess Who, and Burton Cummings walking out on rehearsals during their tour this past summer.

Despite all the hard feelings in the past, Bachman has received a lot of positive feedback from co-workers, associates and fans with regards to his book.

And on an even more suspenseful note, when asked if he would consider organising a BTO reunion tour, Bachman said with a grin, "Well, I've learned from this past year that you never say 'never'."
