America

  • Where the band met: in a London high school
  • Why they formed: to pay tribute to the folk music of their fathers’ homeland, as two of the three members were American, not British
  • When they graduated: 1970
  • When they hit the top of the international charts: 1971, with “A Horse With No Name”
  • What made that song special: surreal imagery and the meditative vocals of co-frontman Dewey Bunnell, which sent Neil Young on a mission to find his long-lost twin
  • Other hits that soundtracked countless road-trips of the 70s: “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man,” and “Sister Golden Hair”
  • How the trio became a duo: Dan Peek parted with the band back in 1977, and tragically passed away in 2011 before a rumored reunion could come to fruition
  • How Burnell and other other surviving member Gerry Beckley soldiered on: by teaming up with Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins for a new album in 2007
  • Their latest: 2011’s Back Pages, which finds them covering Fountains of Wayne, Paul Simon, and, of course, Neil Young
