Randy Bachman’s Vinyl Tap Stories (97)

This book was suggested by John Mutford for the Book Mine Challenge for the month of March, 2016. I am SO glad that John set up this challenge.  As usual, I got a chance to read two wonderful books by Canadian musicians.

This book is a wonderful compilation of his stories. He was a fun person with a great sense of humor. I just loved the way he looked at things as I listened to his music and still do.

Randy Bachman’s approach is always fresh. Most fans can learn a lot from Randy. He never is shy to try something else that is  completely different. When he is touring with Ringo Starr, and jamming with Little Richard, or recording with Neil Young, music is his life. His anecdotes put you at the centre of it all. What a treasure of a book!

Randy has a fifty year career in music, and as expected it has been filled with a lot of highs and lows. It is also a life filled with some very colourful characters. Randy’s stories are candid and always entertaining.

This volume contains his best stories. This book contains the best Vinyl Tap stories. This book is a must read for all music enthusiasts and especially those who love Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Despite his success, Randy is still a kid from Winnipeg. He never lost his charm and small town appeal.
