Dan Peek, a founding member of soft-rock trio America, which shot to the top of the pop charts in the 1970s with bouncy, lightweight hits including “A Horse With No Name,” “Ventura Highway” and “Sister Golden Hair,” died Sunday at his home in Farmington, Mo., outside St. Louis. He was 60.
Peek’s wife, Catherine, found him dead in bed, his father, Milton Peek, told the Associated Press. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. full obituary
