Randy Bachman honoured at the Junos

Thursday, Mar 13, 2014 at 3:04pm

Join Randy Bachman in conversation with legendary Winnipeg radio personality Howard Mandshein in the Atrium at McNally Robinson Grant Park, Saturday March 29 at 2:00 pm.

The next day Bachman, along with fellow band mates of the celebrated Winnipeg band, Bachman-Turner Overdrive -- Blair Thornton, Fred Turner and Robin Bachman -- will be honoured at the 43rd Annual JUNO Awards at the MTS Centre when they are inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

Randy Bachman has another reason to be smiling this month. His new book, Tales from Beyond the Tap, hit the shelves in early March. Following on the success of his 2011 book Randy Bachman's Vinyl Tap Stories, Bachman gives rock fans a VIP tour of an extraordinary life in music, telling more great stories from a life in rock -- all the fun, hardships and adventure that haven't been featured on his hit CBC Radio show, Vinyl Tap.

When you've played thousands of gigs over a fifty-year career, from church basements to Madison Square Garden, most of them become a blur, but there are some favourite venues that stand out. Randy shares what he's experienced, from station wagons and six-to-a-room motels to custom coaches, jets and luxury suites from the vantage point of one who's been there and seen it all. Tales from Beyond the Tap offers a rare glimpse behind the man, the music and his popular radio show.
