  11. Buzz Says:

    As a teenager, “Lonely People” brought me hope and was one of the few songs that made me realize there is something bigger than all of us, and our egos.

    I never knew Dan Peek, but I am certain he was a genuine human being. He now rests on the Other Shore.

  12. Buddyhoot Says:

    A lot of my growing up was around the music of America! It was in many ways the soundtrack to my life! I got to see you guys in concert once in the 90’s with my Sister and I gotta tell ya, it was one of the best top notch performances I’ve ever seen!!! Rock and Roll Heaven just got a lot better! May your guitar never go out of tune and Rest In Peace!!!
