Randy Bachman was asked when he stopped taking the rock and roll lifestyle so seriously, as indicated in the song Taking Care Of Business.  The writer of TCB refused to say a word.

    General CommentThe lyrics of the song extoll the virtues of being a professional musician, comparing the rock and roll lifestyle to the workaday world. Takin’ Care of Business was originally a tune by The Guess Who that never got released. It was originally titled “White Collar Worker”, and very similar to the Beatles tune “Paperback Writer”. At many Guess Who concerts, lead singer Burton Cummings would introduce the song as now being a Guess Who song.

    Ironically, the song has been used as an advertising campaign for companies such as Office Depot, when the song is in fact, about being lazy.

Personally this song has a lot of meaning to me. I’ve always thought the “taking care of business” part was in relation to taking a shit. I could be wrong, but I’ve always thought about it like that. I also usually ‘TCOB’ at 8:15 so this song really resonates with me.
