Robbie Bachman

Robbie Bachman, born Robin Peter Kendall Bachman on February 18, 1953, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is a Canadian drummer, best known as the original drummer for Bachman–Turner Overdrive. He's also the original drummer for Brave Belt who changed their name to Bachman–Turner Overdrive in 1973. Robbie is sometimes credited as "Robin" or "Rob" on the liner notes of Brave Belt and BTO albums. He is also credited for designing the BTO 'gear' logo.

Robbie is the youngest brother of Canadian guitarist, singer and songwriter, Randy Bachman.

Robbie, along with Fred Turner, co-wrote one of BTO's biggest hits, "Roll on Down the Highway".

Robbie Bachman remained with BTO until their tour, supporting the 1979 album Rock n' Roll Nights, had ended later that same year.

In 1984, Robbie declined to join a reformation of BTO due to licensing issues and Randy Bachman's decision to include Tim Bachman as the second guitarist, instead of Blair Thornton.
