Randy Bachman Announces Documentary About His Career


A new documentary by Randy Bachman explores his life, career and influence.

Bachman, which runs approximately 78-minutes, will arrive on streaming services and DVD on March 26.

The film includes interviews with the Bachman himself, as well as sit-downs with Neil Young, Peter Frampton, Fred Turner of Bachman-Turner Overdrive and Alex Lifeson of Rush.

Bachman, who first achieved commercial success in the late-'60s with The Guess Who, has a myriad of hit songs to his name and is a bonafide rock legend, who's especially beloved in his home country of Canada.

"He was like my biggest influence when I was a kid," Young says in the film. "Watching him play guitar — he had an amazing sense about the way he played. And the feeling that you got when you listened to him. It was more than just chops. ... I hear Randy. When I see him, I hear him, and I feel him."

Bachman is one of only a handful of artists in history to have No. 1 hits with two separate bands, thanks to "American Woman" with The Guess Who and "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" with BTO.

You can watch the film's trailer above.

Bachman remains a prolific live performer and songwriter. You can get all of his tour dates here.
