Dan Peek obit

DAN PEEK, one third of ’70s folk/pop group, America, died on Sunday at his Farmington, MO, home of undetermined causes. He was 60. The singer/multi-instrumentalist co-wrote two of the band’s hits, “Don't Cross the River” and “Lonely People.” After years of living in the fast lane, Peek renounced his lifestyle and became a born-again Christian, signing with Pat Boone’s Lamb & Lion Records, and launching a successful solo career. “Sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll; it was the whole cornucopia of fleshly material,” he said in an interview with the Christian talk show The 700 Club. “I tried everything. I tasted every possible thing. I had a spiritual compass, but I abandoned it completely.” Peek is survived by his wife of 38 years, Catherine, his parents and five siblings. (7/27a)
