Randy Bachman left Bachman-Turner Overdrive following the groups Freeways album in 1977 and tracked and released a solo album, Survivor, in 1978, then formed the short-lived Ironhorse in 1979, sticking around for two albums before renaming the group Union. Union, which also included former BTO bandmate Fred Turner, released a single album, On Strike, in 1981. Bachman and Turner next joined a reunited BTO for 1984s Bachman-Turner Overdrive and the resulting tour, which led to a live album, Live! Live! Live!, in 1985. Various versions of BTO stayed on the road through 1991 when Bachman finally split the band for good, although one configuration or another of the group was active on the touring circuit through 2004. The entire infrastructure around the band, including its touring and management company, was officially dissolved in 2005. Bachman and Turner next joined forces in 2009, recording a new album together, the self-titled Bachman & Turner, which was released a year later in 2010.
