Neil Young Inspired Randy Bachman To Take New Direction

(Classic Rock) Randy Bachman credits Neil Young with giving him advice that led him to make solo album Heavy Blues. Released under the band name Bachman, it features bassist Anna Ruddick and drummer Dale Anne Brendon, plus guest appearances by Joe Bonamassa, Peter Frampton and Young, among others.

Bachman tells Canoe: "(Young) said, 'Do yourself a favor and don't do the same old Randy Bachman s--- and say it's new,'" Bachman says Young told him at last year's Musicians Hall of Fame ceremony.

"He said, 'Get a new band, get a new producer, write some new songs, get a different guitar so you play differently and do something new and scare yourself. Be terrified. Be ferocious. Be fearless. But also be afraid.'" Read more here.
