You're the best.
Just had write to say that the guys played here last night at the Regent Theatre, Melbourne last night. If you missed them then all I can say is that youve missed another great show by the masters ! great performance ! you guys are the best... Happy New Year.
Hi to everybody! I am an old America's fan. I'm 33 and I grew up listeninig to their music. I have all the records of this wonderful band, except Human Nature. The cd has not been dealt in Italy. But I'll find it somewhere. Ciao Costanza
hi! guys u have a good site, i'm one of you fans in the Philippines, but i'm living here in Sarnia,Ontario,Canada for six years now. I'm 35 yrs. old married and had one four yrs.old boy. I like all your songs my favorites are All my life and Special girl. more power and have a nice day.
As a 25 year fan of America, I am really looking forward to see the
guys in concert at the Monte Carlo here in Las Vegas on Dec. 17th, I
have seen them in concert as least 10 times over the years & they
always put an excellent show. I have really enjoyed "Human Nature"
since it was released, I use it as a demo CD at the Stereo Store
where I work all the time. Gerry & Dewey are like old friends, I like
alot of other fans my age grew up loving America. Can't wait to see
ya guys, hurry up & get here.
Sincerely, Chip Crouse
I've been a great fan of America since the mid seventies especially the acoustic period. No matter what the critics says about them comparing with CSNY, to these ears America is mile spart and much more melodic and pleasant.
I am trying to convert my collection into CDs. Currently I've got on CD, America (1st), Homecoming, Holiday and Silent Letter. On cassetes are History .... and Hearts.
I HAD THE INCREDIBLE OPORTUNITIE TO MET GERRY AND DEWELL WHEN THEY VISIT MEXICO THIS LAST NOVEMBER AND I ONLY HAVE TO SAY THANKS FOR BE INCREDIBLE LIKE PERSONS AND MUSICIANS. I LOVE YOU GUYS.
I think that America is excelent, I am from South America, and this is for Dewey and Gerry: We're waiting for you at Argentina, Uruguay, etc. Michael has already meet me in Uruguay: Conrad, Punta del Este. Michael: I have seat on the scenary, and you gave me the thing to play the guitar, thank you a lot...
i`ve been a fan of 'AMERICA' since 1972 and have bought every album available so far! My wife and I look forward to seeing America live in concert when they tour Australia next year.(2000)"Horse with no name" is still my favourite although I enjoy many other songs that they have released.Keep up the good work!!
This is a COOL site!!! I've just received my TimeLife CDs and I can't stop playing "Tin Man," "A Horse With No Name." This prompted me to go on-line and find an America site; bingo, I found you-all!!
Keep up the good work!!
A fan since the seventies...
Thanks again for calling recently. We checked the 2000 tour dates and didn't see Sweetwater on the list! Sure would love to see you guys again. Call when you can... Dickey
It will be great to see the band on New Years Eve in the land of OZ
playing up a storm in Wonderful Wollongong.And what a venue!
right on the beach front of one of the south coast's fantastic
surfing spots.I saw the boy's play the Gong last year with the
Beach Boys .looking for another top performance...............
with America, you can count on it!
Hi, It's great to hear that the guys are coming back to Australia in December for another tour, They are much admired here. I'll be booking a front row seat !... P.S. Where in Australia can I pick up a copy of Van Go Gan ???
In relation to the "alibi" comments, it was my opinion that the album cover was directly related to the Lindy Chamberlain baby (dingo stole my baby fame) in the months preceeding the albums release. What do others think?
Just missin' you all - Can't wait to see ya again!!!
G'day!! I've been looking at your page, and i think it is a great page. I play guitar, and i got some chords from your page, which helped me a lot. Congratulations for the page!!
I HOPE SEE YOU SOON IN YOUR NEXT CONCERT HERE IN MEXICO,I', VERY EXCITED BECAUSE AMERICA IS MY FAVORITE GROUP.I HOPE YOU PLAY IN CONCERT SUVIVAL,RIGHT BACK TO ME,YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE AND TIN MAN,BECAUSE THESE ARE MY FAVORITE SONGS. THANKS FOR THE MUSIC GUYS.
just bought a pc..went on line and found this web site...this is great
i have been a big america fan for the past 28 years..now i can keep up
with the band..i didn't realize they as busy as they are and still
fairley popular........keep up the good work......
Received my copy of "Van Go Gan" yesterday. I am on my 3rd listen right now. GREAT STUFF!!!. If you do not have it ... GET IT. Thanks Gerry and Scott for the re-release. I missed it the first time out.
I just want to thank Dewey & Gerry for all their music and all the great memories from their concerts over the years. I have every CD in their catalog and have been to 10 cncerts.
Absolutely sensational to find this site, the song Sister Goldenhair keeps runnin' through my head over and over.... depression led me to an attempted suicide a few years back, and it was God's love and the love of a good woman - my wife Debbye - that kept me alive and continues to do so today....... Hallelujah !!!
I love you, America...take care
This id THE site for the great band AMERICA. I was very lucky to see them last year here in Chile. Hope they'll be back here someday- they were great! I need help on bass-guitar tabs for their music, if someone has any then please just e-mail me! Thanks!!!
Just saw my 101st America show at the Palumbo Center in Pittsburgh. Took my 14 year old daughter to see her first. My first America show was 1975 in Erie, PA.
Message to Brian Jones:
Hello...Came across your page purely by accident while looking at
vintage guitars, including the Brian Jones teardrop model and then
was just lolling about following that up with Brian Jones sites.
So Brian Jones lives on in England then? Congratulations...
Just thought I'd say hi...I am trying to get together a garage or garage/psych type band here - we'd always welcome you - Brian Jones-
A voice from the past. Keep up the great music guys. Ours paths will cross again when you are in this area. Excellent website and trivia info. My how the 30 years has flown by. All the best to you both. take care.
A GREAT webpage for A GREAT band!
Hope both continue for many years to come!!
Am a new fan to this band, saw them four times in Iowa this summer and I am now a loyal supporter! I love this website!! Keep up the good work keeping us fans connected!
I'll be driving up to Connecticut tomorrow, 10/15/99, to catch the live act of the absolute, all-time greatest music group that ever existed! I just wish there would have been a site like this when I was in school in the 80s, and all there to listen to was techno-synth new-wave poop. As an America fan, I felt all alone in a sea of Boy George wanna-be freaks. It's nice to have a home here!
My most sincere apologies to everyone who has tried to sign my guestbook since July 27 and hasn't been able to. I just found out today that the directory that the guestbook is in has been write protected since that time and no one has been able to post anything here. I express my gratitude to Chris Page for bringing it to my attention so I could fix it. Once again, I'm truly sorry and look forward to reading your guest book entries.
America Fans Webmaster
I would like to thank Terry Trost for the pictures of the HatTrick poster. I did buy two albums to those posters so I could have each side plastered on my college dorm walls. I also enjoyed the 1977 tour photos as that is the year I saw America (the one and only time) in Omaha. Thanks for the memories!!
Are there any Australians besides me who constantly visit this website?
I have been listening to America since their first album, I have over 20 on cd now. Would love to hear from other Aussies out there or anyone from ANYWHERE that enjoys America.
Why won't America play in cleveland? I do believe cleveland is the rock and roll capitol of the world!You've been here before many of times why not this year? We miss you guys! Dave
I bought an album titled 'America Live' for £2.99 at the HMV sale, as
I already had 'History' and know they made beautiful tunes, but I had never heard them live. I listened to the album twice, and I now realise that this album is a 'Shining Symbol' of the group 'America'
I love their voices. My favorite song is 'Horse with no name', it means a lot to me.
Why don't you guys play the Grand Canyon?
Hello Gerry Beckley!!
I hope you're well; think about ya every now and then. Looking forward to your Oct. 18th concert. Hey, how did your sound man's guitar class go last Sept.? (I remember meeting him in the bar after the Hartwood Acres PA. concert. very nice man; just curious. Does your dude Scott still look like a bad-ass? --kiddin. he seemed very nice as well.) I'm up late, and you came to mind. If you're tired, bored, feeling down in any way, know that people love you, and some nice girl in PA. thinks you're very, very cool. I respect what you've done and are doing, and think you're one talented and 'hot' man. Hope you can make some time after that show this fall; you're very fun. Please take care of yourself; there are those of us who have absolutely no 'claim' on you that care anyway if you're well and happy. So I hope things are exciting and fun--even more, calm and content, and enjoy it all. You've done so much that's made so many, many of us feel very good, and for that we thank you.
keep that sexy face and bod healthy and happy, and I really, REALLY hope to see you this fall, buddy.
Ms. Lynne Marie from South Park, PA
(X and O)
ps--if you're ever around a friend's computer, just for the heck of it, respond to me--Autumn6178--; I'm smart enough not to respond back--I know ya can't go throwing that e-mail address out when the 'babes' chase you as they do! (as well they should,) But I'd LOVE to hear from you! (highly doubt that'll happen, but have a wonderful day today, buddy)
Saw them last night at the Palace in Myrtle Beach. My husand and I
have been together since 1969 and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Brought back lots of great memories. I still think Gerry's awesome! I'll start listening to the new stuff.
Well I see that I'm the first brazilian to sign yours guest book.wow!!!
Just want to say that I'm a huge fan of America. I just love The musics and everything.I'm a new fan but it doesn't matter , I like America like an old fan like.
Can anyone tell me where to find a copy of the Gerry's CD "Van Go Gan"?
I have been an America fan since I was eight years old. Now my thirteen year old daughter is a fan too. Why isn't America in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? I love the new album!!
Saw the band twice this year, can't wait for them to return to the metro Detroit area.
Just caught the show at Westbury Music Fair. First time hearing Dewey
sing lead on "Lonely People". Really enjoyed featured new album cuts,
especially "Wednesday Morning".
Waiting to see a show longer in duration..can"t get enough!
Thank you soooo much. This site is wonderful. What a pleasure to retreive the chords and the lyrics of one of my favorite bands.
I have look so long for a book with this. Thank you.
I consider America one of the finest bands ever. I play their music all the time on my guitar. :)
Been a long time fan of America. Very disappointed that their newer
stuff has gotten almost no airplay time at all. I've been to a number
of their concerts, and it seems like they don't want to play any recent songs. The newest song they played was "You can do magic".
Was also very disappointed that when they were on the TODAY show a
while back, that instead of doing their new songs, they chose to do
their old songs (Horse with no name and Sister goldenhair).
If I may give them some of my totally "unknowledgeable" advice,
PLAY YOUR NEW(ER) STUFF. HAVE SOME FAITH IN IT THAT PEOPLE WANT TO
HEAR IT, AND LIKE IT.
I HAVE BEEN A FAN FOR 28YRS AND LOOK FORWARD TO MORE GREAT MUSIC FROM AMERICA IN THE YEARS TO COME.ARE THERE ANY MORE BRITISH FANS OUT THEREWHO WOULD LIKE TO SEND A NOTE TO GERRY& DEWEY TO COME TO ENGLAND ON THE NEXT TOOUR?
Where can I buy a copy of "Van Go Gan"? I checked with a couple of the sources listed on the website but not abailable
What a great site is this!!! I hope Gerry and Dewey will perform here someday again. yeah, that was my DREAM come true. Thanks Dewey and Gerry, here's your biggest Chile fan !!!!!!!
Song "Inspector Mills", great song, any idea where to get the cords?
I still think St.pete has beautiful sunsets too. I was there for your concert on the beach. It was great. I grew up with you guys. You are part of my lifes memories. I listen to a song and remember what I was doing when I first heard that particular one. Thanks and keep em coming from the moving train. Tina
Really enjoy your web site for America. They've been my favorite band since 1976!!! Actually met Gerry & spoke with Dewey on the phone at the now razed Holiday House in Monroeville PA. Saw all their shows there! Thanks again for a great tribute to them.
Gerry and Dewey:
America's is my favorite group, and my favorite song is "garden of peace". I think this is the most beautiful song of peace and love I ever hear. I love you and I hope to see you next november here in México.
Hi Gerry & Dewey & Gang,
Hope you had a great time in Spain & Germany. Can't wait to see you all on Sunday at Westbury Music Fair. Take Care and get some rest, please.
I was at your concert on Friday 18 June. Thanks for playing so good
for such a small crowd. Got goosebumbs from The last Unicorn.
I hope you all come back again. Thanks for the MUSIC.
I Saw you yesterday at Luz de Gas in Barcelona. It was terrific!
Thank you for your music.
Played lots of America over my radio career! Come check out my new site entitled Musician's Wall of Fame featuring autographed photos of bands and singers with links to their official sites. Hope you find something useful and please let other netizens know of our little corner of the web! Thanx
I WENT TO BUSHEY HIGH SCHOOL WITH YOU GUYS, CLASS OF '69-REMEMBER ME, I BOOKED GENESIS A GIG OUT IN THE FARMLANDS - REMEMBER THE FARM BOY WHO DIDN'T KNOW WHAT A DRUMMER WAS CALLED! AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN CONCERT AT PINE KNOB, MI THIS YEAR. WOULD LOVE TO HOOK UP WITH YOU IF YOU'VE GOT TIME MAYBE WE CAN BBQ
What a great place to visit.
Just stopped in to say hello. I'll see you in Rowlett,TX. Can't wait.
Great site. You guys are the best in my ears. saw you three times,(1977,1982,1991). Its about time you all came back to Peoria. the last time my wife was fortunate enough to get a guitar pick from Gerry. Next time I'm goin for a handshake. Anyway thanks for all the enjoyment you've given my ears over the years. One suggestion though is to at least play one song from each album, besides the hits, in concert. I love some of the more obscure stuff and I'm sure the true America fan will as well. Thanks for listening and keep on rocking. Dan Cranford
thanx for the chords! really great songs!
Nothing better than listening to America while camping in the woods or driving down some forest road. I grew up listening to America and just saw them live this week in chattanooga! I never dreamed I would finally get to see them play live. Such a priveledge to be there! Only one prob.... they need to add moonsong and cornwall blank to the set!! thanks! :)
Great website on "America". I am a listener of many 70's rock/pop groups, and this was, and still is, one of my favorites. I definetly will be revisiting this site again soon.
G*R*E*A*T P*A*G*E --- G*R*E*A*T G*R*O*U*P
I have had the pleasure of personally knowing the guys for quite sometime now. Thanks for all the memories. Thanks for letting me jam on "Horse" with ya's at that wacky festival all those years ago!. Thanks for being-PERIOD! AMERICA the beautiful!!! Hooh hah!
You Guys really kick $%@
I am a huge america fan. I think that World Alone could be a big single if given the opportunity.
I'm looking thru this site and noticed how many folks had the life time opportunity to meet "the boys" in a hotel bar after the show. In 1995 at the Deerfield Thing, I was blessed with the chance to party with Dewey and Willie Lee until oh about3:00 in the morning. It was like sitting around with old friends, Dewey is open, Down to earth and i felt i made friend that night. This was after an out door concert in Pompano. Dewey, you signed my album I've had since the eary 70's, the album kept falling out of the jacket and rolling on the floor. I remember they had a 5:00 am wake up call to play in Orlando it was great night willy played on the piano as did some young lady he was working on. Well the whole night was surreal, as I said, it never really occured to me I was parting with america. Saw the boys again last month at the Pompano Seafood Feast they sound as good as the first time at the Miami arena in the early 70's. I thought I'd died and gone to acoustic heaven then as I do at every concert. Willy, easy on the gin and thanks for the smokes. Dewey thanks for the beers, keep on keeping on untill we all are so old our hearing aides don't work. Thanks for the memories and the best music of the decades, past, present and future.
america have never performed in Ireland is there a reason for this.
very many fans here
yours Paschal Bugler.
i'm originally from the Philippines and i've been a big fan of your band since gradeschool.I learned to love singing(esp.harmonizing)and how to play acoustic guitar(my brother too)because of you guys. you are our inspiration.you're very popular in my country.i saw you guys at the so.florida fairgrounds(dewey gave me his autograph)and also at the Kravis Center where u guys were back2back with airsupply. i'm also glad that you have the lyrics and guitar chord to your songs.this is the only way we(your fans)can feel u closer to us is to be able to sing your songs and play it as well. thank you for sharing it with us. more power to you! and will be looking forward to your latest album. thank you for you music. God Bless!
I just wanted to ask you guys if it's true that the late Phil Hartmann
illistrated your album covers?
I'd just like to tell you that you have a great site! I think that
the fact that you have the chords to all of America's songs is awesome, I have found them very useful! Thanks, and keep up the good
I am a big seventies music fan of America. I have one of your albums on compact disc called America's Greatest Hits History chronicles your best song performances ever. It includes twelve song tracks in it my favorites of yours are "A Horse With No Name", "Tin Man" and "Lonely People". Keep it up and going so strong with your music career and enjoy the future's next brightest decades ahead thanks a lot!
Saw America at the Destin Mayfest on April 30th with my brother &
sister inlaw. After all these years you guys are still the best!!
A fan since the start - I have all albums in vinyl and CD - some in both thanks to www. Saw you when you were 3 at the Hammersmith Odeon in the 1970's - brilliant. Would dearly love to see you again but rarely in the US and can't get to Spain or Germany in June. I wished you were given more air-time in the UK. Your albums are so good they should chart and then maybe worthwhile touring. BBC Radio Two plays stuff sometimes but have heard nothing on radio from Human Nature. I got my copy 4 days after release via the Internet. Keep up the brilliant work - oh and my 6 year old son, Sam is a big fan!
I have been a fan for 25 years and you keep sounding better and better. I see all your shows in florida keep the magic up! love ya!
i love your songs .my favourite is cinderella.keep on making songs.
i will follow you m.r.gerry and m.r.dewey.
HUMAN NATURE IS BY FAR THE BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

I've been a fan since 1972; On march 6 I saw them perform in Lancaster again, and was thrilled to talk to them after the show. Gerry and Dewey were both SO down to earth, taking the time for pictures,(WITH GERRY'S ARM AROUND ME!!!!), and autographs. I took my 9 year old daughter, and Dewey spoke to her at length. AND THE MUSIC!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!! They still sound as great as ever! Between the music and seeing how unaffected these guys are by their celebrity, I always leave their concerts feeling UPLIFTED!!!
Just wanted to send Brad a very Happy Birthday wish! Hope you enjoyed your day?--JOYCE & ERIN-----:)
I'm 40 years old and have been an America fan since the inception. I'm
also a musician (guitar).I may have played your songs more than you guys have..Pittsburgh has always loved you guys.So have I.
human nature cd is sweet.i saw america at the birchmere in arlington va last year. still hoping to hear submarine ladies or rainbow song someday. of coarse that would be a bit much maybe.hope to see the guys again soon maybe in dewey beach at the bottle & cork.(sailin close to the wind without you)jb
This is year 25 of being an America fan!!! Proud to say I have all their ablums/cds. Was disappointed when they stopped naming albums with "H"'s.....I loved the "AHHHHHHH". Could someone PLEASE let me know why they havent toured in Canada lately?!?!?!?!?!?!
Hey everybody! The July 3rd date with America coming to Baltimore/Washington has been confimed!! Email me for details at KRASMAN123@AOL.com.
America just keeps rocking! My wife and myself really enjoy the music that thay write and produce. We personally met the band after a show in Cleveland in the hotel bar. We were really surprised that they were done to earth people. Gerry and Brad were really cool.We didn't really get a chance to talk to Dewey. We hope you consider coming to Cleveland in 1999!
just sending Willie "Free willy" Leacox, A very special Happy Birthday Message!!...........JOYCE & ERIN........:)
Hello, GRRREAT web site devoted to a fabulous group! Precisely why I have placed a link at my site. If any of you are into RARE music trading, drop by and check out my 16,000+ song database at http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Venue/1980/ and choose what you want, if you have songs from my want-list. Regards, Harry
Wow, I caught the March 20th show at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium and was blown away. Most kids my age just don't understand why I love America, and I say "That's because you don't appreciate good talent!" I only wish I had the vocal ability to harmonize as good as America, as it is that harmonization which turned me on to the band in the first place. My favorite song? Probably submarine ladies or Hat trick, or Till the sun comes up again, or ... Thank you for being my biggest musical inspiration in my songwriting. P.S., What's the deal with closing the homepage? I'm sure we could get fans to run it and keep it up if that's the problem.
Benson...Where are you???
Couple of questions first
1. Where in Yorkshire was Dewey born. I did a year of boarding School in Clithero, which is at the Lancashire/Yorshire boarder, in 1968-1969.
2. Always wondered why so many recording titles begin with "H"
3. Any chance than Dan will record with Dewey and Gerry again
4. Are there recordings around "America" time period that have not been released
I have been listening to the CD of "America" today. Heard a lot of acoustic strings that came through stronger than the vinal version.
It is the acoustic and harmony of the America sound that I have always enjoyed
I was disapponted not to see Houston on the 1999 tour. Will have to make a special trip to Rowlett (ne of Dallas) or hopefully Austin
Hi all, just checking in. I'm a big fan since 1972.
Does anybody collect and trade audios/videos of America?
I do. Please email me. Love to hear from you. HL
The America homepage and horsewithnoname.com sites have been closed. Does anyone know why? Has the band broken up for good?
It's so nice to know there are other people who have been following America! I first saw them in Feb., 1973 and continue to enjoy their music - Human Nature is great.
I've listened to Human Nature quite a few times. It's a fine production and one that deserves a listen. More recently, though, I played CDs of America's first LP and Homecoming and I was struck by the songs' relevance more than 27 years after their release. The mix of electric and acoustic instruments was excellent, the vocal harmonies exquisite and the lyrics thought provoking. One song I find even more appealing today is Saturn Nights. I listened to that the other day and just shook my head. I really wish Dan Peek would rejoin the group. I realize Gerry Beckley thinks it would be a step backward, but what's wrong with that? "Free as a bird" was a "step back" for the Beatles. Thank goodness for that "backbeat."
To borrow from one of Beckley's own songs, "Another Try," just give it a shot. If it doesn't work, what's the loss?
I just want to say thank you for some great music.
I saw America in concert twice in the 80's,and once in the 90's.., they're one the most underrated bands till today..In my opinion, I haven't seen their equal in terms of songwriting and melodic music composition/arrangement in that genre, sure you can blast your stereos w/ hard rock stuff, but by the time your get really deaf, America brings back the music w/o getting back to sleep--- it just jives w/ your stream of consciousness!! their acoustic style and voice harmony is what I like best!!! more power to the band! cheers guys, and great web site too!!!
Mars of Vancouver
Just checkin' in to say howdy! Can't wait for your concert in St Louis!
Saw America at Pechanga, 2/26/99...GREAT!!!!! Renewed fan
from the 70's.
America is awesome
Hey guys, when are you coming to Vt.? Is Dan Peek still active in music? Thanks for the music and the memories. Doug MorTone
Krohn's Boulevard Records has vinyl albums by America & lots more for sale, Used But Not Abused CDs & Singles, back issues of music magazines like Goldmine, Discoveries, Musician, Guitar Player, Rolling Stone, Hot Wacks, Spin, Creem, & others; http://www.kalnet.net/krohn
HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE CONCERT FRIDAY NIGHT...SAW YOU THERE JIM. THANKS AGAIN FOR MAKING THOSE TAPES FOR ME AND ALSO FOR TAKING THAT PICTURE. IT TURNED OUT GREAT. I WILL BRING YOU ONE TO SEE AT ANOTHER CONCERT SOON. STILL LOVING DEWEY AND GERRY...BYE
i was wondering if u can help me get the tabs for a song by the group Bad Company, song name - "If u needed somebody". I would be greaful if u could. Thank you.
Thank you so much for getting me into the acoustic guitar. Because of
you I created a successful demo utilizing harmonies and acoustic rythyms. I am hooked and can't wait to see you perform.
... what else?
Thank you for the site!
I have been an America fan since 1982. Ever since "You Can Do Magic." I have seen them over the years probably between 15-20 times and have all their albums on CD (which, by the way, is no easy task).
Last weekend I had the opportunity to see them at Lake of the Torches Casino in Lac Du Flambeau, WI. (By the way, I also saw them in Florida the previous weekend at Church Street Market in Orlando). The concert was great! We had front row seats and had an opportunity to meet them after the show.
Gerry and Dewey if you read this, I want to especially thank you for being so terrific. I had an article with a picture of Gerry from a concert back in August ’98 in Sheboygan, WI that I wanted him to autograph. I thought he would just autograph it and that would be that. He had enough class to stand there and read the whole thing. Thank you, Gerry, very much!!!! (I would be more than happy to send you a copy of the article since you said you hadn’t seen it, but I don’t know where to send it.) Before they left for the night I also had an opportunity to have my picture taken with them. I just wanted to say that you guys are the greatest, and I’ll never forget that night for as long as I live. You have definitely made my whole year!
By the way, the new album, "Human Nature" is fantastic. I can’t seem to stop listening to it.
Great web-site! I listened to the greatest hits this a.m. and thought I'd like to get some of the music to sit and strum. Thanks!
JUST CAUGHT THE FEB SHOW IN ORLANDO, GREAT AS USUAL, JUST FINISHING
UP RESTORATION ON 3 WURLITZER "AMERICANA" JUKEBOXES, ONE READY TO
SHIP TO THE BAND IF YOU CAN COVER SHIPPING COSTS-OR MAYBE TRADE FOR
AMERICA "STUFF"-NO CHARGE FOR THE BOX- IT'S WORTH IT FOR ALL THE
GREAT TUNES OVER THE YEARS
I have been an America fan since their first album. Since finding this web site I've been able to purchase all the rest of the albums on cd's. But Im still looking to find Gerry's solo album. Any help in this matter would greatly be appreciated. Love to chat with any other fans!
I have been a fan since the early 70's and have most of their albums. I've only had the pleasure of seeing them perform twice and would love to see them again. I'm a guitar player and singer (just a hobby) and have always admired their style. I would LOVE to meet Gerry Beckley just once. Love the website...it brings back lots of memories.
I've been an America fan for years...keep up the great work, guys.
Happy to see a site!!! Been looking for a follow-up to the road trip to Cincinnati (front row, center!!!!) Definately adding this one to my Favorites!!
Chris - Cleveland
I can't wait to see you guys at Church Street Station for tomorrow night's concert. I'm glad you were finally able to work in Central Florida this year and that WMMO is putting on the show. I tried getting WMMO to play anything from Human Nature back in September and October and they didn't even know you had a new release. I was told they had to listen to it to see if it fit their music format. I couldn't believe my ears since they play alot of your music. But, they've made it up to me by having you back for the Downtown Concert Series.
1998 was the first in 19 years where I wasn't able to see you. Can't wait 'til tomorrow. Cari
I've been keeping close tabs on the upcoming concerts. I'll be going to Providence,RI perhaps, definately Lowell,MA. The best place I've seen America so far is without a doubt the Wolf's Den at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Ct. Comfy chairs, great view, big screen, it's the best. I just love the song "Pages" from Human Nature. It's definately true, America isn't getting older, they're getting better. Keep it up guys!
you guys are the best! i found this site (actually crammed for it) just last week coz i really became desperate for the lyrics of inspector mills (i was singing along with the wrong words)....finally got it, though, and it took me some moments to wonder at those words....nice job to be back guys...just hope that your new albums would reach my place here...i really haven't got some of your albums coz this place doesn't have a nice connection to your place....i just hope that they'd give me a chance though, to get that HUMAN NATURE and that new live album you released....thanks for the music guys....you really can do magic!
This is for Dewey Bunnell. Dewey, I fell in love with "America" at 11 years old. You are coming to where I am (pinellas park, FL) finally. I will get to see you...
I have been a bitch to you and your friends thus far, but I finally got what I wanted and that is to see you. I am going, even if it means going by myself.
Call on me anytime Dewey!! I mean it!! Thanks.
Just received Human Nature (and love it) in the same order with Alibi, Silent Letter, and Your Move--all finally on CD. My America experiences go back to a concert at Fairfield University in the early seventies when you had the guts to play your only three hits first and let everything else rest on its merits. It was the first time I heard "Wind Wave." Now I have "Love's Worn Out" and "I Don't Believe in Miracles" on CD. I can die happy, though I plan to listen to them a few more times first. I was saying to a friend today how good it makes me feel that you two are still at it. Maybe it's because we must be about the same age and it's nice to see people still following the dream. Keep at it. Next time you're in the southern New England area, I'll be there.
I love your music but my twin sister is your biggest fan! She lives in Massachusetts and catches you when you are at the Mohegan Sun in CT. She came out to Illinois last summer and planned her whole trip around your concert in Missouri! Keep those new releases comin, you sound better than ever!
Hey just purchased the Musicladen video, and it is realy great, Brought back many memories of the band when there was three. Human Nature is great, and look forward to seeing a show this year.
Keep it up Guys!!!

TO HEARD AMERICA IS LIKE A DREAM, IT MAKES ME REAMIN THE CHILD YEARS.
Nice Website! But I am still looking for a site where I can see what CD's I can order of America's first 7 albums. Of particular interest, Holiday, Hat Trick, Hearts, Harbor & Hideaway.
I begin to play guitar and it's really a great pleasure to play America's song. Thanks to Gerry and Dewey for this fantastic collection of song.
I've seen America in Paris in the summer of 1995 and I'm waiting to see them another time.
Please come in France !
ps : si vous etes francophone et que vous voulez discuter d'America envoyez moi un e-mail à Djyle2@altern.org
Dear Gerry and Dewey,
I know you all since your song, a horse with... 1970 i guess. I was born in 1955. Since i know your music, my whole life has turn into an "America" person. My music, my lifestyle is America. I am so happy, to be able to write to you, it's so wonderfull to know, to be so near you, and when I found your e-mail adress, I got tears in my eyes. I allways wanted to complement your music. I haven't heard better music since i know you. I must say, I only have Your first 6 records with Dan, 70 - 76. And after, I lost the contact to the Band (Reccords) because Tina, my wife and myself went up to the alps to live. I heard also, that You played in Switzerland 97 or 98. It was that time impossible to visit that concert. America lives in my heart and every gig i'm playing, i'ts your songs. They are just perfect. I could tell you for hours an hours, but i supose you hear that every day. If you are one time in switzerland, we (my family) invites you in our house for a nice meal. You are warmly wellcome. I o you so much. I play tomorrow on a Birthday-Party. With my 12 String, I gona play america. So wish me luck to present your songs perfect. I'm glad to know you have a home-page, so I can inform about you what happend the last 20 Years.
Human nature seems to me as if you going back to the roots?! I just love it.
I hope, if i can not find all your music here in Switzerland, i hope you help me to turn in fan who can say, I have america complete.
So, thats for the moment. I'll be back. You are the greatest on earth. I love your voices, music, just everithing. (sorry for maybe wrong spelling) See you (wishfull thinking) This (short for Matthias)
As a club musician for over 20 years now i've played many America songs and get reguest for their songs all the time. In the fall of 96 i was lucky enough to see them live on the river front here in Savannah- what a great show! Since I'm new to this computer thing it's hard for me to get around yet but I've really enjoyed exploring this site. I'm sure I will be back many times. Thank You
We love you guys.
