Dan Peek was proud to be an American.
The singer and musician, who along with Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell founded the band America in 1970, died at his Farmington, Mo., home on Sunday, according to his father, who said that Peek's wife Catherine found him dead in their bedroom.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine cause of death. Peek was 60.
Among Peek's songwriting contributions while a member of America were the songs "Lonely People," which reached No. 5 on the Billboard singles chart, "Don't Cross the River," "Woman Tonight" and "Today's the Day." The rocker's high harmonies are also on prominent display in America's most enduring hit, "A Horse With No Name."
