1967, Ra McGuire and Smith played in a band named Winter's Green, which recorded two songs, "Are You a Monkey" and "Jump in the River Blues", on the Rumble Records Label. "Are You a Monkey" later appeared on a rock collection: 1983's "The History of Vancouver Rock and Roll, Vol. 3".

In the early seventies Winter's Green changed their name to Applejack and added drummer Tommy Stewart and bassist Harry Kalensky to their lineup. Applejack became a very popular band in the Vancouver area, and began touring extensively in British Columbia. The band played a few original tunes such as "Raise a Little Hell", and "Oh, Pretty Lady", as well as Top 40 songs by artists such as Neil Young, and Chicago.

Trooper is a Juno Award winning Canadian rock band that developed from a group formed by vocalist Ramon McGuire and guitarist Brian Smith in 1965.
As the principal songwriters for the group, McGuire and Smith have performed as Trooper from inception to the present day.
In 2001, "Shot Spots", a Punk tribute to Trooper, was released on Visionary records.
