Bachman & Turner Reunite For Album Track And Tour
RANDY BACHMAN and FRED TURNER are set to go into Overdrive again after reuniting for a new album track.
The Bachman Turner Overdrive leaders teamed up to record the title track of Bachman's upcoming album, Rock 'n' Roll is the Only Way Out, and now have plans to tour together in 2010.
They are planning a big announcement next week (08Dec09), but the duo won't be able to hit the road as Bachman Turner Overdrive due to an injunction filed by Bachman's younger brother Rob and former BTO guitarist Blair Thornton.
Instead the pair plans to tour as Bachman-Turner United.
Bachman tells Billboard.com, "We've been getting offers for the last five or six years. It started in 2000, with the reunion of the Guess Who. I went to see the Eagles, and the first thing Don Henley and Joe Walsh said was, 'How's Turner? Any chance you guys will do anything?' 'Why are you interested?' 'You're the last band of the '70s that hasn't gotten back together or put something out, that's why!' Mick Jagger said the same thing."
Bachman's new album also features appearances by Neil Young and late blind blues legend Jeff Healey.
