Music Groups - Steppenwolf (band)

Steppenwolf are a Canadian-American,[1][2] hard rock group that was prominent in the late 1960s. The group was formed in 1967 in Los Angeles by vocalist John Kay, guitarist Michael Monarch, bassist Rushton Moreve, keyboardist Goldy McJohn and drummer Jerry Edmonton after the dissolution of Toronto group The Sparrows of which Moreve was not a member.[3] The band has sold more than 25 million records worldwide,[citation needed] releasing eight gold albums and twelve Billboard Hot 100 singles of which six were Top 40 hits,[4] including three Top 10 successes: "Born to Be Wild", "Magic Carpet Ride", and "Rock Me". Steppenwolf enjoyed worldwide success from 1968 to 1974, but clashing personalities led to the end of the core lineup. Today, frontman John Kay is the only original member left, having served as lead singer for more than 40 years since 1967

1 After Goldy McJohn was thrown out of the band they tanked. The stuff they released in the 80s and 90s, with Steppenwolf nothing more than a label for John Kay, was very subpar, and the lineup Kay toured with during those years seemed low budget. When I saw them in 1991, they didn't even have a bassist. Keyboardist Michael Wilk was using his synth (y'all know how much I love an overbearing synth!) to double as a bass. Very artificial sounding, especially when bass is my main instrument since high school. Also, Wilk is no Goldy on keyboards. Nobody is. Goldy had the sound and look that helped to define Steppenwolf. His piano and organ playing was an integral part of Steppenwolf's sound. Give "Cat Killer" and the full version of "For Ladies Only" a listen if you want examples of his talent being showcased. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Never boned - the first band to use the term "Heavy Metal" of course they were referring to motorcycles but it still counts -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on June 27, 2011, 4:39 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
