The big, breaking news story this weekend was the death of singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm].  What I bet you didn’t know was that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dan Peek[/lastfm] also died.  Do you remember Dan?  He was the THIRD member of America back in the 70’s.  This is eerily timely, as America was just at Wild Horse Pass a week ago.  At the KOOL VIP Pre-Party, we were trying to remember who that third member was.  I had to look it up on Wikipedia.

[photogallerylink id=60384 align=right]According to his website, Dan passed away yesterday.  Is this 2/3 of another CDT (Celebrity Death Trifecta)?

I can’t find any details of Dan Peek’s death online.  When you go to, it simply says “Dan passed away on July 24 2011,” accompanied by this YouTube video:

While not 27 like Amy and so many before her, Dan was only 60.  That’s still QUITE young!  If you hear anything, let me know.  I’ll do the same for you.
