Summary
The book starts at the beginning, a rags to riches story of 3 Air Force Brats who eventually met in London, England at the height of the "American Invasion" of music. Courted by every Record Label in town, the band chose to sign with Warner Bros. Records and the rest as they say is History. With the release of their acoustic and vocal harmony masterpiece, "A Horse With No Name", the band was catapulted to the top of the music charts worldwide. Their self-titled debut album containing the forementioned single reached the #1 spot on Music Charts around the world. The book is an insider's look at the opulent and sometimes sleazy world of Rock and Roll during the Golden Years of the 70's. Dan's depiction of meeting the A-List Celebrities of the day, including Rod Stewart, the Beatles, Rolling Stones, CSNY, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne as well as Movie Stars Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty among others is a compelling read. With feedback such as "Couldn't put it down till I was finished" and "Now reading it for the 3rd time" are typical of the comments the book has engendered. Legendary Managers David Geffen and Elliot Roberts helped guide them and the soon enlisted the talents of Sir George Martin, known for his work with the Beatles. Sir George produced 5 of the 7 albums the group recorded for Warner Brothers and was instrumental in keeping them at the top of the charts, album after album. The book also chronicles the painful breakup of the band as Dan Peek left to pursue a solo career which resulted in a groundbreaking CCM album, "All Things Are Possible" which garnered a Grammy nomination
