No seventies group represented Canada's musical identity to the world like THE STAMPEDERS. A quick look at Canada's music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country's international musical ambassadors. Instead of trying to blend into any specific format, they developed their own identity, which was both entertaining to watch in concert, and to listen to on radio and records. The Stampeders also toured more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group of the same period.
While there were various line-ups of the group during their 15-year run, the three-man line-up of RICH DODSON, KIM BERLY and RONNIE KING was, by far, the most successful and most widely-adored by the fans.
The group's beginnings can be traced back to Calgary in 1964 with a band called The Rebounds, formed when drummer, Kim Meyer (KIM BERLY), answered an ad placed in the paper by bassist, BRENDAN LYTTLE, and guitarist, RICH DODSON. The Rebounds consisted of RICH DODSON (lead guitar), LEN ROEMER (rhythmn guitar), BRENDAN LYTTLE (bass guitar), KIM BERLY (drums) and Kim's brother, Al Meyer (RACE HOLIDAY), on lead vocals.
