Maybe Mick can shed some light on this mystery for us?

3/5ths of BTO? That don't sound right, like Bob said. Don't get me wrong though, I might just tune up the truck for a road trip if Randy and Fred show up anywhere together for a show....

Ok, I'll admit to having not having read the page thoroughly and only looking for the BTO reference ....

You're probably right - as is Bob, but the BS might have been placed there intentionally....(ah crap, again)

Its kinda odd that there is no specific date or venue on there for the "3/5 of bachman-turner Overdrive." Just Branson, Missouri in August. And it doesn't say which three members either. and I'm not quite sure what to make out of the three fifths... my best guess is they are meaning the Not Fragile line up with Tim or Murray added to that.... or they are full of crap. and actually a three fifths BTO doesn't mean Randy And/ or Fred.. It means there are going to be three people who played on stage as members of BTO before. for all we know, if its true, it could be Blair, Rob, and jim Clench or any other combination of 3 former members.

Yeah that's the standard deal for acts on cruise ships - they board - do 1 or 2 shows and that's it.
I did sound for a number of years on ships - it was a fun experience - they have top-notch equipment, surprisingly large theaters on the bigger vessels, and many great acts, and the travel was great.
