STEPPENWOLF: JOHN KAY, GOLDY McJOHN, MICHAEL MONARCH and NICK ST. NICHOLAS.
This color magazine photo is a band photo of STEPPENWOLF from early in their career and signed by founding members John Kay, Goldy McJohn and Michael Monarch.
STEPPENWOLF, which is named after a Herman Hesse novel, has released eight gold albums and three top 10 songs, including Born to Be Wild, which peaked at no. 2 in 1968, and Magic Carpet Ride, which peaked at no. 3 that same year.

The band was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1967 out of the remnants of the Toronto, Canada-based rock band The Sparrows.

The Sparrows included KAY, born Joachim Fritz Krauledat in Tilsit, East Prussia, Germany in 1944, McJOHN, born John Raymond Goadsby in 1945, ST. NICHOLAS, born Klaus Karl Kassbaum, in Plön, Germany and MONARCH, born in 1950 in Los Angeles, California, although St. Nicholas left the band before it changed its name and didn't return until 1969.

STEPPENWOLF broke up twice, in 1972 and 1976, only to reform each time.

STEPPENWOLF played its farewell concert in 2007, with Kay as the only founding member left in the band.
