Definitive Randy Bachman Documentary Begins Production
Submitted to Cashbox Canada
The Randy Bachman documentary is set to put a spotlight on the music legend.
Bachman is a contemporary film about the man, who is often referred to as the ‘architect of Canadian Rock n’ Roll,’ Randy Bachman. Few artists can claim to have made a bigger impact on popular music which he has done through his list of unforgettable anthems turned pop-culture touchstones. Since his first hit in 1965 with "Shaking All Over," Bachman has sold over 40 million records and earned over 120 gold and platinum album/singles awards around the world for performing and producing, and his songwriting has garnered him the coveted #1 spot on radio playlists in over 20 countries. Randy Bachman is one of only two countrymen to have been inducted twice into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
The full-length documentary explores his global impact on popular music; Randy Bachman’s songwriting produced chart-topping hits for The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, including “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” “American Woman,” “Let it Ride, “Taking Care of Business,” “Looking Out for #1,” “No Sugar Tonight” and “These Eyes,” tracks that have become pop-culture touchstones.
