The Kings were formed in Vancouver, British Columbia and Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Original members were David Diamond, lead vocals, bass guitar and songwriter, Sonny Keyes, vocals, keyboards and songwriter, Max Styles, drums, and Mister Zero, guitar and songwriter.
They are best known for their memorably anthemic hit about waiting for the weekend, "This Beat Goes On / Switchin' to Glide," released in 1980. The story of the song is captured in the documentary "The Kings: Anatomy Of A One-Hit Wonder," available at YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4uz7tuTIfo
