Richard and Brian Cooper, sons of an Ontario songwriter, played in various bands throughout the late '60s, but the two finally formed a group of their own in 1971. They released three singles by 1974, but none charted until the band signed with Polydor the same year and released "Finally with You." Over this time, guitarist Darryl Alguire, drummer Glenn Bell, vocalist/guitarist Terry King, vocalist Charles Robertson and keyboard player Al Serwa joined the brothers. After joining Capricorn Records in the U.S., the Cooper Brothers released the popular singles "Rock and Roll Cowboys," "The Dream Never Dies," "Show Some Emotion" and "I'll Know Her When I See Her." Their albums include a self-titled work from 1978 and Pitfalls of the Ballroom in 1979. Capricorn folded by 1980 and though the Cooper Brothers split up soon after, Brian Cooper and Terry King resumed work in the trio Cooper, King and Emmerson. ~ John Bush
