Robbie Bachman died at the age of 69. He was the drummer for the Canadian hard rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive, which had hits in the 1970s like “Takin’ Care of Business” and “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet.”
Randy Bachman, his brother and bandmate, announced his death on social media on Thursday. He did not say why.
Randy Bachman wrote, “BTO’s pounding beat has left us.” “He was an integral cog in our rock ’n roll machine and we rocked the world together.
The Bachman brothers grew up in Winnipeg and have made music since they were young.
Randy Bachman, Robbie’s older brother, is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. They first collaborated in the band Brave Belt, which Randy Bachman helped form after leaving Guess Who, the best-selling band at the time.

Bachman-Turner Overdrive was started in 1973 by the two Bachman brothers, their brother Tim Bachman on guitar (who was later replaced by Blair Thornton), and Fred Turner on bass. Over the next three years, they sold millions of records with their mix of grinding guitar riffs and catchy melodies. “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” was the band’s biggest hit, and “Takin’ Care of Business,” “Hey You,” and “Roll On Down the Highway” were also big hits.
