Max Webster was formed in Sarnia, Ontario, in 1973 by guitarist/singer Kim Mitchell. He’d spent the preceding seven years in a series of short-lived acts (The Quotations, Big Al’s Band, ZOOOM), including one, the Grass Company, that issued the 1968 psych-rock single “Once a Days” (b/w “Once a Child”) on Michigan-based regional press Sound Inc.
For Max Webster, Mitchell enlisted keyboardist Terry Watkinson, bassist Mike Tilka, and drummer Paul Kersey. Watkinson had played in the late-’50s rockabilly combo Sonny Brite & the Sequins and the ’60s garage band Dee & the Yeomen. Kersey hailed from The Bluesmen Revue, which issued the 1968 Columbia single “Spin the Bottle (of Love)” (b/w “Dorian’s Dance”).
