Founding Members were:  Ian Fisher, Jeff Cerar, Jack Hanan and Dean Helgeson.  Marty Waychoff took over drumming duties due to Dean Helgeson's health issues in early 1980. This was The Cowboys lineup until mid-1983.

Mark Borden and Will Ratcliff were in the band for very brief stints in 1983.

Marty Waychoff actually played drums on The Cowboys EP, not Mark Borden. The artwork was already done so Marty didn't get his photo on the EP, unfortunately.
