Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap Stories shared some of the best material from Randy’s hit CBC Radio show Vinyl Tap. Here, in Tales from Beyond the Tap, Randy tells more great stories from a life in rock—all of the fun, hardships, and adventure that haven’t been featured on the radio. This is Randy Bachman, unplugged!
Tales from Beyond the Tap gives rock fans a VIP tour on an extraordinary life in music. Randy has met, and even performed with, almost every musician you can think of, but who are the artists he wishes he had met? The answers may surprise you. What is Randy’s creative process for writing a hit song and what is it like working with some of those famous musicians? When you’ve played thousands of gigs over a fifty-year career, from church basements to Madison Square Garden, they can become a blur—but there are some performances that stand out. And life on the road is not as glamorous as most people imagine. Randy shares his experiences from station wagons and six-to-a-room motels to custom coaches, jets, and luxury suites. Randy has seen the Canadian music scene develop from the beginning, and his thoughts on its evolution will make you appreciate the music even more.
And for the first time, Randy discusses his roller-coaster relationship with former Guess Who bandmate Burton Cummings.
Tales From Beyond The Tap offers a rare and exclusive glimpse behind the man, the music, and the show that puts radio back on top.
