Before forming this band, Furay and Stills had played together in the Au Go Go Singers. Palmer and Young had played together in the Mynah Birds. That band featured Rick James (of "Super Freak" fame) on lead vocals and was signed to Motown.
They got their name from a steamroller doing local road repairs.
They were originally named The Herd (also the name of Peter Frampton's first group).
