about

Randy Bachman has been rolling out chart-topping songs his whole life—“You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” “These Eyes,” “American Woman,” “Takin’ Care of Business”—and, since 2005, treating fans to a lifetime of rock ’n’ roll stories on his hit CBC Radio show, Vinyl Tap.

His approach is always fresh—even the most hardcore music fans will be surprised by what they can learn from Bachman. Whether he is touring with Ringo Starr, jamming with Little Richard, or recording with Neil Young, music is his life, and his anecdotes put you at the centre of it all. A fifty-year career in music is full of extreme highs and lows. It is also a life filled with some very colourful characters. Bachman’s stories are candid and always entertaining.

These are his best stories. The most memorable Vinyl Tap moments are all here, from Randy’s Guitarology 101 to his favourite songs to be played at funerals. For fans of the radio show and perennial rock ’n’ roll lovers from the sixties through to today, Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap Stories invites readers to relive their favourite musical experiences. And for new fans, it opens up a joyous world of rock and popular music.

Despite his success, Bachman is still “that kid from Winnipeg,” and his enthusiasm for great music is as strong as ever. Funny, raucous, and engaging, Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap Stories is irresistible.

Editorial Reviews

“[A] fruitful collection of anecdotes and behind-the-song illuminations…. The charisma of Bachman’s book isn’t in the details—though there’s plenty of that—it’s in his joy of the telling.” - The Globe and Mail“A brisk and engaging read…. Part of Vinyl Tap's appeal (both the book and the radio show) is his ability to provide an insider’s view of the musician's life. You feel like you're hanging out with Bachman backstage or on a tour bus.” - Times-Colonist“So clear-sighted, so packed with detail and so fresh, even wide-eyed in tone.” - Winnipeg Free Press“[Bachman] is either friends, enemies, or former touring partners with pretty much anybody who ever made a record, in history, ever.” - Georgia Straight
