Here's what's on tap for this weekend - 16/17 Sep 2017
On September 23 Randy Bachman will induct Neil Young into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in Toronto. And this week on Vinyl Tap he has the second of two shows he’s calling “Two Guys, Two Guitars”.
Randy was born in Winnipeg so his roots might go a little deeper but Neil grew up there and they both were fixtures on the same local music scene. Their paths to success ran a little differently… Neil left and became a driving force in the country-rock hotbed of southern California in bands including “Buffalo Springfield” and “Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young”.
Randy stayed a little closer to home working his way up the charts in groups including “The Guess Who” and “Bachman Turner Overdrive”.
But the two have always been pals and it was Neil who suggested that Randy put the Turner in Overdrive by hiring vocalist Fred Turner.
Old man take a look at your life coz you ain’t seen nothing yet… and be sure to tune in to the Tap.
