Bachman–Turner Overdrive, often abbreviated as BTO, was a Canadian rock group from Winnipeg, Manitoba founded by Randy Bachman, Robbie Bachman and Fred Turner. Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six US Top 40 singles (eleven in Canada). BTO has five certified Gold albums and one certified Platinum album in the US; in Canada, they have six certified Platinum albums and one certified Gold album. The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, and has fans affectionately known as “gearheads” (derived from the band’s gear-shaped logo). Many of their songs, including “Let It Ride“, “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet“, “Takin’ Care of Business“, “Hey You“, and “Roll on Down the Highway“, still receive play on classic-rock stations.

Great tune,great band
I believe the reference to Winnipeg is technically incorrect. While Bachman was from Winnipeg, he was living here, in Lynden for a while if I recall. BTO, initially called Brave Belt, was very much a Vancouver band. Perhaps someone else can weigh in on this.
I concur, Newsman. While Randy, Robbie, and Fred are from Winnipeg, Blair Thornton is from Vancouver and the band was based and managed out of here too.
