Ah.. this take me back... Thanks Diesel for the song and reminding me that I owe Mr. Peek a 'thank you' for the pleasure of the music he made.

@Marie: You're welcome. I should've researched which songs he personally had written, but this was the 1st song of America's that popped into my head. I discovered after recording it that it was written by another member of their band.  8-)

Mr. Bodine - you are a perfectionist. ;-) I've been wandering the internet listening to America, Mr. Peek, rediscovering his music, his life, my past... since watching ~your vid. *grin*

This is so good, Diesel. Thank you.

What a great band.

*sigh*,...memories.

Dan Peek wasn't as gifted a songwriter as Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckley were, but he was a third of that three-part harmony that gave America such a resonant sound. I loved his guitar playing, too. The debut album by America is one of my all-time favorite albums, and I make sure I have it with me on every road trip. Nice tribute, Diesel.
