I have always been a fan of the Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive. Today I am an even bigger fan. I recently discovered that Randy Bachman, founding member of both the Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, sent a new autographed guitar to a fan who lost his Bachman autographed guitar when a massive wildfire claimed his home. A wildfire consumed half of the town of Slave Lake, Alberta on May 15th, destroying hundreds of businesses and homes. Jeff Bartlett lost a guitar that Bachman had autographed for him in 1997. When Bachman heard about Bartlett’s lost he sent him a new autographed guitar along with a note:

“To replace another musician’s ‘soul instrument’ and restore his magic of creating music is good for my soul,” he wrote. “I feel honored to do this small gesture.” – The Post Chronicle

Thank you Randy Bachman for taking the time to make a fan’s day, if not his lifetime.
