Loverboy were formed by experienced musicians from several well-known acts; guitarist Paul Dean and Matt Frenette had been members of Streetheart, keyboardist Doug Johnson was from Fosterchild and vocalist Mike Reno came from hard rockers Moxy - all names with a pedigree and all highly talented. Formed in Vancouver in early 1980, the band soon sought out major management and secured help from Bruce Allen, Bachman-Turner Overdrive's long-term manager.

Cutting demos, the band were then signed to Columbia and cut their debut album at the then virtually unknown Little Mountain Sound studios with producer Bruce Fairbairn (working with engineers Bob Rock and Mike Fraser), a man who had previously worked with Prism. With classic hits like "Turn Me Loose" and "The Kid Is Hot Tonite", the 1980 debut Loverboy album sky-rocketed all their careers to the stars and beyond.
