Dan Peek, Rest in Peace

I am so sorry to hear about the death of Dan Peek. I remember years ago, walking to my local record store, and buying the first America album - an awesome record that I still listen to today. And every time I hear "Ventura Highway" played on the radio, I recall the first time my friends and I drove from New Jersey to California in 1974. Dan Peek left the band in 1977, when the Lord called him to serve him in the Christian Music world. Here is one of my favorite America songs, "Lonely People." Beautiful Lyrics

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky
