On the loss of my friend, Dan Peek, from America

posted by Chris Epting

I just learned that my friend, Dan Peek, one of the original three members of the band America died today at the age of 60.

I’m stunned.

He was a gentle, talented, funny and wonderfully gifted man. I’m at a bit of a loss at this moment – not sure on the details – we were in touch very recently (he lived on a farm in Missouri) and all seemed well. I am simply heartbroken over this… Dan had a deep, strong faith that he spoke of often. He was very proud of that and let it be known.

Here’s Dan, on percussion, playing on one of my all time favorite songs.

I’ll miss you, man.
