BTO’s Tim Bachman Dies Of Brain Cancer, 71

Tim Bachman, co-founding guitarist and vocalist for Bachman-Turner Overdrive, has died, his son confirmed on social media. He was 71.
The veteran guitarist died on Friday following complications with cancer “riddled all throughout his brain,” Ryder Bachman shared on Facebook.
Tim played with BTO on their first two albums “Bachman–Turner Overdrive” and “Bachman–Turner Overdrive II,” both released in 1973.
He left the group in 1974 and was replaced by Blair Thornton, but rejoined a decade later in 1984 for their reunion tour and continued to perform on tour through the 80s.
