The Sadies & Randy Bachman Canadian Music Week 2004 March 3 to 6, Toronto ON


Legendary guitarist Randy Bachman hauled his axe onstage at the Sadies’ behest for three tunes, including a rendition of the Guess Who’s wild, hard-rocking 1967 B-side "It’s My Pride." Apparently performing it for the first time in over three decades, consummate professional Bachman didn’t miss a note, although the tempo was more relaxed than the Nuggets-worthy original. The room greeted the obscure gem with the same familiar enthusiasm afforded "Runnin’ Back to Saskatoon" and the set-ending lunch pail anthem "Taking Care of Business."
