God Bless America...(the band)

Dan Peek, one of the founding members of America, passed away on Sunday at the age of 60.  I have to admit....America is one of my "guilty pleasures."--especially their early stuff, which had a Neil Young feel to it. Like Horse with No Name...Ventura Highway...Sister Golden Hair.  Or deeper tracks like Sandman.   OK,  Muskrat Love--not so much.   Peek left the band in 1977, and became a born-again Christian, & was a pioneer in the Christian rock musical genre.  Dan is survived by the other 2 members of America, Dewey Bunnell & Gerry Beckley. Excuse me, while I ponder the philosophical implications of ..."Oz never gave nothin to the Tin Man...that he didn't already have."

Sandman would sound good on The Eagle. It rocks just enough.

Lots of specialists claim that loans aid a lot of people to live the way they want, because they can feel free to buy needed goods. Moreover, banks give student loan for different classes of people.
