The band formed in the late 1970s. After gaining popularity in the Kansas City area, Shooting Star became the first American group to sign with Virgin Records. They recorded their 1979 debut album in England with producer Gus Dudgeon, best known for his work with Elton John and David Bowie. The band gained national exposure when a number of songs garnered moderate air-play on album-oriented rock radio stations in the US.

The initial lineup was: Van McLain on guitar and vocals; Charles Waltz on violin, keyboards and vocals; Bill Guffey on keyboards; Gary West on guitar and vocals; Ron Verlin on bass, and Steve Thomas on drums.

In 1976 the band persuaded fellow musician Gary West (born Gary Hodgden) to join them as a singer and songwriting partner for Van. In 1977, they shortened their name to Shooting Star.
