Winnipeg’s Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO) will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in March.

The band electrified the world between 1973 and 1979 with chart-topping rock ‘n’ roll hits like “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and “Takin’ Care of Business.”

The longest-serving members of BTO, Blair Thornton, Fred Turner, Randy Bachman, and Robin Bachman, will be inducted when the Juno Awards come to Winnipeg.

The band won seven Juno Awards in the 1970s, including Most Promising Group of the Year (1974), and Group of the Year in both 1975 and 1976.

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) was ready to induct the band more than a decade ago, but a spat over who held rightful claim to the name “BTO” prevented that from happening.
