Robbie Bachman At Glance
Robin Peter Kendall Bachman was the profoundly amazing and highly accomplished Canadian drummer and more importantly the youngest brother of guitarist, singer, and songwriter Randy Bachman. Robbie Bachman served as the original drummer for both Brave Belt and Bachman- Turner Overdrive bands which gave him a tremendous amount of recognition and fame. Robbie Bachman was born on February 18, 1953, on the outskirts of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
When we look into his early life, Robbie was so fond of musical instruments, especially drums. So he practiced drum often during his childhood along with his big brother Randy. So by realizing the innate talents Robbie had in playing drum, Randy Bachman offered him a drumming job in the Brave Belt band when he was only eighteen.
The members of Brave Belt band at the time were Chad Allan and Fred Turner, and when Chad had to step back from the band, it paved the way for another Bachman brother named Tim to join the band. Even though the first two albums of the band were unsuccessful and undeterred, they rise like a phoenix and changed the name of the band from Brave Belt to Bachman-Turner Overdrive in 1973.
But when things went pretty south, Randy Bachman decided to step back from the rest of the group and he was replaced by the guitarist Randy Murray until 2004 last. Later Randy Bachman and Fred Turner reunited and decided to record a new album and it was released in September. But the brothers were quite in a dispute as Randy Bachman tried to tour and release albums under the name of the band Bachman- Turner.
Only petite pieces of information are available regarding Robbie Bachman’s personal life. He was married to Chrissy and whether the couple has children is quite unknown. And Robbie Bachman is definitely the uncle of Tal Bachman, the riveting musician of the present generation.
