The group was formed in 1966 in San Antonio, Texas by Rod Prince and Roy Cox. The name "Bubble Puppy" was taken from "Centrifugal Bumble-Puppy", a fictitious children's game in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. The final roster for Bubble Puppy settled at Rod Prince and Todd Potter on lead guitars, Roy Cox on bass guitar, and David "Fuzzy" Fore on drums. In 1967, Bubble Puppy moved to Houston, Texas and signed a recording contract with Houston-based International Artists. Bubble Puppy scored a Top-20 U.S. hit in 1969 with their single, "Hot Smoke & Sassafras". The single peaked at number 14 on the Billboard 100 and number 15 in Canada. In 1969, Bubble Puppy released their full-length album, A Gathering of Promises. Signing Nick St. Nicholas of Steppenwolf as a manager, Bubble Puppy moved to Los Angeles. Their name was changed to Demian (after Herman Hesse's 1919 novel, at the suggestion of their manager's wife). The group signed to ABC-Dunhill Records and released one self-titled album in 1971. The members of Bubble Puppy continued to be active in the music industry. * Rod Prince - Lead Guitar / Vocals * Roy Cox - Bass Guitar / Vocals * Todd Potter - Lead Guitar / Vocals * David Fore - Drummer / Vocals
