I´ve been listening your music for 25 years and I truly believe that you are the best band I´ve ever heard, I had the chance to went to a concert in México City with you guys and Hall and Oates, it was a wonderful experience, but when are you coming back? I´m your number 1 fan in México and I´m looking forward to see you in the near future.
Thanks for all your wonderful music!
By the way, your new CD Humane Nature is as great as all others.

Wow!!!! Last Sunday my dreams came true at their concert! I waited for them for more than five hours at the back of the Arena, but it was only 20 minutes before the concert when they finally arrived... and that was AMAZING. I was waiting for them w/ other fan and we jumped onto their van. I said "Hi Dewey! howre you doing?" while I shaked hands w/ Mr.Beckley. They were quite kind singing my HEARTS cd and making my lifetime dream come true in those few seconds as one guy pulled me off their van... The concert was superb and I was thrilled! They performed all their hits and the sound was incredibly pure. When Gerry played "Daisy Jane" that was truly intense and we all enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Dewey And Gerry that was something I wont forget... no doubt a HIGHLIGHT !!! LONG LIVE AMERICA !!! (heres your biggest Chile-fan)

Hello to all America fans in Germany! Human Nature has now been released by in-akustik, order no. 990004-2. "jpc" offers it for 33,95 DM ( Bought my copy today in a jpc shop. My first impression is that the album is only good average, but as others here claimed before it should grow with repeated listening. Greetings!

Good site! 2 Q's: Why is there no America box set? Shouldn't there be at least one? Certainly enough material, and clearly enough demand. 2nd: Why not get DTS to release one of the quad mixes of "Hearts" or "Holiday" on a DTS compact disc? They are selling well!

I have had Human Nature for 2 weeks now and I must admit I diddn't rate it as highly as some of their previous albums, even though I quite enjoyed it.
However, the more I listen the more hooked on it I get.
The harmonies in Overwhelming World Suite are great but I'd have to say my favourite is PAGES.
A truly great album!

Guest: 175 Steve Signed In: Sun Oct 11 23:42:21 1998
From: Texas

As a retired professional rock musician, (actively involved in the business world for the past 23 yrs.), I was most impressed after seeing AMERICA in Houston, TX on October 10, 1998. They sounded GREAT, as they clearly were "in the grove" easily blowing away: Ben E. King, Ronnie Spector, and Three Dog Night (really two Dog night) !
Bravo guys ! My wife and I look forward to the next time....

Dewey and Gerry, Seen you on Home shopping,ordered your live C.d,I thought it was very rude how they cut in on a chart climbing song. Ive been a fan forever,Humane Nature feeds my soul.I hope I can help with calling all my local radio station to request from a moving train.I will keep in touch. Take Care Joanne Meyers

From: Yakima,wa

I'd like to add that I've listened to "Human Nature" again and I must say it's getting better. There are some intricacies I hadn't noticed before. Clearly "Moment to Moment" is a marvelous piece and the production throughout is first-rate. One other thought: I realize a lot of people miss Dan Peek, but Beckley and Bunnell deserve respect as a duo, which they've been for 21 years now. Drop me a line, guys, at

Guest: 172 Wes Nelson Signed In: Tue Oct 06 14:51:23 1998
From: Yakima,wa

Just bought Human Nature. "From a Moving Train" is a very good song, the kind that should get some radio time. It's better with every listen. The remainder of the CD falls off a bit, though, in my view. It's not bad, but nothing else really jumped out at me after a couple of times through. I guess I had hoped for more from Bunnell, my personal favorite through the years. The guy just rules.

I just wanted to say how much AMERICA's music has meant to me. Dewey and Gerry (Dan Peek,too) have added so much to my life with their music.

I received "Human Nature" the other day and have enjoyed it so very much. AMERICA just keeps getting better. Great, great sounds! I hope "Human Nature" gets radio play. It's long overdue.

Thanks for the great site. Thanks Dewey and Gerry for the wonderful music over the years and for"Human Nature".

From: yakima, wash.

I've interviewed America twice, in 1987 (Southern Oregon) and 1997 (Yakima, Wa), and just wanted to touch bases again. It's good to know that this "original unplugged" band hasn't forgotten its roots. Their early work has a certain timeless feel, particularly Bunnell's contributions. Keep it coming and good luck with the new CD. As for myself, here's a selfish plug: Watch for The Informants, an acoustic-electric rock and blues band that's on the rise. A CD is in the works. Hey, Dewey and Gerry, do you want to produce it? Let me know. ... And tomorrow, where will we be tomorrow? What will we see today?

Just want to say Hi to all of you America Fans! I was fortunate enough to catch the guys this past sunday at the summerfest in Norway,Michigan. Gerry & Dewey put on a heck of a show and were very gracious to all of us "media" types backstage. they patiently talked with us,signed autographs,and allowed us to take pictures! they performed 2 new songs from the upcoming "Human Nature" -- "Pages" sung by Dewey,and "from a moving train" with Gerry on the lead vocals!

I Really started getting into America about seven years ago and was so inspired by their acoustic based music that I started taking guitar lessons a few months ago. Thats saying a lot from a guy thats been a drummer for 20 plus years ! I have almost all their albums (some Japanese imports) and met them two years ago after their concert in Mississauga Ontario. They were very gracious and friendly and made me a lifelong fan with their great attitudes and wonderful music.

I have been a huge America fan for many years, I'm so thrilled at this new website, I never would have dreamed it would have been possbile even a few years ago. I'm glad for the guys to see this new interest the group. But for long time fans like me I never quit loving their music, it was frustrating at times, because there wasn't much on CD & the record companies in their infinite wisdom (HA HA) would stop producing wonderful albums like "Hearts" & "Alibi" which I just purchased on CD were stupidly cut out. I am looking forward to "Human Nature" like everyone else & was disappointed to see the release date was pushed back, Oh well, I just enjoy all the other CD's until it comes out. Can't wait to see them in concert in Louisville, Ky. This will be my 11th time seeing them, they just get better each time. I am listening to "Hearts" as I type, what an incredible album, I absolutely love "People in the Valley", "The Story of a Teenager", "Midnight" & "Tomarrow" not to mention the singles, in other words the whole thing !!! Looking forward to purchasing "Perspective", "Holiday", "Your Move","Harbor", & "Silent Letter" as soon as I can. I just want to say in closing I really miss Dan Peek alot but I don't love America any less because he's gone. I wish they'd do a reunion concert for old time sake. A fan always Chip Crouse.

I'll let you know just how great the concert was. Talk with you then.

Why are so many albums not available on non-import CD? Is it Warner Brothers and Capitol? Many years ago I wrote to both (WB and Capitol) asking when they were going to release ALL America albums onto CD. I received no response from one, and the other wrote on my (Original) letter stating, "no plans at this time".

Patience running out in Vermont!

Thanks - Don Edson

I'm a dedicated fan and thought I had all the CD/albums until we saw American in concert last night (my third concert) and Dewey mentioned Human Nature is their 20th album--I'm about five short of having them all. Great concert, by the way (APRIL 21)--best version of Sand Man we had ever heard. donna

I've been a big fan since "View From the Ground" when I was in high school. I've seen them at Jones Beach Theater and almost every year when they come to Westbury. My favorite album is "Your Move" . I'm really excited that they'll be releasing a new album soon. They're so awesome!

I love America! Daisy Jane is one of my most favorite songs by them and I think that they sound like what a band really should sound like! I'm only 15, but I love the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and a few thing in the 90s, but not much. Nice site. Love the clips..... bye!

I got hooked to America around 16 years back and still think they are one of the greatest bands. My first album was "America with Tan and Jeff" I wonder why Dan Peek does'nt figure in the later albums though. I have'nt as yet been able to get hold of "Hat Trick". I love them. You guys are really good. Your 12 strings sound fab. I'm proud of you.

I can't remember when I first time listened to the very first America's song in my life. But I was 15 or 16 when a girlfriend gaves me "View From The Ground" album witha a special sign on the third track "You Girl". Suddenly, that beautiful intro chords Bm/F#m/Em/F#m/F#m7 and that beautiful melody brought me peace and happiness. After that, America became an important part of my life's soundtrack. The girl is not the same, I'm 10 years older, but that chords keep flowing in the air...Thanks Gerry and Dewey for over 25 years of great music! I hope you come back to play here in Rio, Brazil, again! We love you...God bless you!

I have followed America since their first releases and make every attempt to see them in concert when they come to the Cleveland, Ohio area since then. When and where will they be back in "98"? And when do they plan a new album. To good to quit now. This is the only band that keeps me linked to the past and I enjoy the new sounds they have done as well.

Anyway, I'm 20 years old (going to be 21 on Tues, Mar. 17) and a big fan of America. I have a decent America record collection now and even had the pleasure of seeing America in Norfolk, VA on August 8, 1996. I even got to meet Gerry and Dewey at their hotel after the show. Got some great pics plus autographs!

I saw America at the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville CT, last night for the second time. They sound just as good now as they did when I first started listening to them in the early 70's. They are truly a "class act" and I look forward to seeing them again...and again!!!!

I have been fortunate to have seen the guys in concert every year for the past 18 years. I met Gerry in Vegas in '86 when we came from around a corner and literately ran into each other. I was more than speechless. He invited me to meet the band and he's been gracious ever since. I discovered these wonderful web pages tonite, searching for concert information. It's been great to see and read about other fans.

I booked AMERICA for our Montana Music Festival 5 years ago and they gave me my 15 min. of "Andy Warhol fame" when they had me join them on stage to sing encore of "Horse with No Name". Can't wait to see them again in Santa Barbara on 3/26. Do so love their wonderful music. Gives me happiness. Please forgive if this msg. appears twice, AOL seemed to stop me midstream on first attempt.

Hi! I've seen this web site several times & it just keeps getting better all the time so I figured I'd better take a minute to sign the guest book! I especially like the tour information, sound clips & the newsletter! Also, the guest book signing by Derek Lowery is real cute! I've been a fan of America since the days of "Horse With No Name" & "I Need You" & they are truly a fantastic group of people. To Gerry & Dewey, thanks for the beautiful music & I look forward to your upcoming cd. I have a feeling 1998 is going to be one of your best years (professionally) ever! Hope you do a show in Maryland this year (but you have to be the main attraction)! No more shows where you are the opening act--you're much too talented for that!!!

America performed in concert in Bakersfield last year and they were great. I have been able to attend four of their concerts now and I will never get tired of listening to their songs or seeing them live. Its no wonder that they are still around after all these years because their sound is the best. Tell me when you are coming back to Bakersfield and make it soon. I finally was able to get ahold of Van Go Gan and its as great as the rest of their tunes. America is always welcome in Bakersfield and its only a little over a hundred miles from all the members homes, so come on back!

After I saw this great sight I downloaded "The Last Unicorn" I went to see this movie when it came out because America did the songs. I had forgotten how wonderful they were. My wife purchased the video for me so now I have all of Americas published music. I love this band I have since 1972 when I first heard " A Horse with No Name" Thanks guys and please come close to North Carolina and I will be there.

P.S. Does anyone know if America will be on Leno or Letterman this year?

I've enjoyed America's music since their first album in 1972. Through the years, I've seen them perform 6 times. My favorite concert was their 1978 show with Michael Murphey in Shea's Theater in Buffalo, NY. I've enjoyed this website very much. I play some America songs on acoustic guitar (intermediate player) for my own enjoyment. I would really like to find out the acoustic guitar leads for both "Riverside" and "Three Roses". If anybody knows, drop a line in this guest book. Thanks.

I've been a huge America fan since I first heard "I Need You" in college in 1974. I've seen them live several times and they always put on a great show. The first two albums are still my favorites, with some of the best acoustic guitar work I've ever heard. Keep rocking, Gerry and Dewey !!

This is a TERRIFIC Web site.

America is one of the greatest bands to come out of the 70's, and still be together today. I'm only 26, and have all of their LP's. Hope to see many of their early albums like "Hideaway" and "Hearts" released on CD, so I don't wear out my LP's. Hope America comes on tour to the Portland area this summer. Saw them in concert 2 years ago, and it was great!!!!!!!
