Guitarist Timothy Gregg Bachman appeared in court Monday on charges of sexual interference with a person under 14, touching a young person for a sexual purpose, and sexual assault. The charges relate to incidents that allegedly began in 2000 when the complainant was just 11 years old. Bachman, 58, was one of three brothers who founded the blockbuster band Bachman-Turner Overdrive, famous for their hit Takin’ Care of Business. Bachman toured with the band off and on before settling into a career as a realtor in 1991.
