Brother Randy Bachman mourns

The next death in the international music world: The Canadian drummer of the rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO), Robbie Bachman (1953-2023), is dead. The talented musician died recently at the age of 69. His brother Randy Bachman (79), the group's frontman, confirmed this on Twitter.

'Another sad goodbye. The pounding beat behind BTO, my little brother Robbie, has joined Mum, Dad and brother Gary on the other side,' writes Randy Bachman along with an old black and white photo of the band. 'Maybe Jeff Beck needs a drummer?' he continues, referring to the recently deceased guitarist Jeff Beck (1944-2023). Robbie Bachman was an 'integral cog in our rock 'n' roll machine'. Together they 'rocked the world'. Details of the cause of death of the deceased are not known.

Two brothers rock the stage

Robin Peter Kendall Bachman, the musician's full name, was born in February 1953 in Winnipeg, Canada. As a child he played drums regularly in his parents' house, which led him to his job as a drummer in his brother Randy's band at the age of 18. The Brave Belts were formed in 1971 by the Bachman brothers and Chad Allan.

Two years later, they renamed their rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive. The rockers experienced their career peak between 1973 and 1976: five albums made it into the top 40 of the charts and six singles into the US top 40 singles charts.

Her best-known hits include 'Roll On Down The Highway' and 'You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet'. In all, the group released about ten records. Their last album 'Bachman Turner Overdrive' was released in 1984, but could no longer build on the success of its predecessors such as 'Not Fragile' (1974). In 2014, BTO were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
