From sold-out stadiums to a cameo on The Simpsons, Randy Bachman reached rock royalty status decades ago. Now in his 70s, he's still takin' care of business: performing live, working with young artists and hosting a national radio show featuring the musicians he admires. A man who achieved the rare feat of number one hits with two different bands—"American Woman" (The Guess Who) and "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" (Bachman Turner Overdrive)—Bachman eschewed the rock 'n' roll lifestyle of his contemporaries to focus on his craft. For this guitar virtuoso, it's always been about the music. Featuring interviews with Neil Young and Peter Frampton, Bachman lovingly profiles a legend who continues to inspire. Alexander Rogalski
