Canadian rock band Steppenwolf was prominent from 1968 to 1972. The group began in late 1967 in Toronto by lead singer John Kay, keyboardist Goldy McJohn, and drummer Jerry Edmonton (all formerly in Jack London & the Sparrows). Then guitarist Michael Monarch and bass guitarist Rushton Moreve were brought into the fold. Clashing personalities is what led to the demise of the core lineup. Today, John Kay is the only original member, having served as the lead singer since 1967. With their three successes being, “Born to Be Wild”, “Magic Carpet Ride”, and “Rock Me”, Steppenwolf has sold over 25 million records worldwide. They’ve also released eight gold albums and had 12 Billboard Hot 100 singles! h/t >
