I would like to know if the band America was ever considered for induction? The band in the early years was comprised of three members Dan Peek Dewey Bunnell and Gerry Beckly. Dan left the group in 1979 and the remaining members have continued on, performing over 100 shows each and every year. Although much of their success was in the early years I feel that the Hall of Fame may have just over looked one of the most successful acoustic acts of our time. I would hope that you would kindly respond to my e mail. my e mail address is and my home address is 14 Eastwood pl Cedar Grove N.J. Thanking you in advance

Nicholas, The Cleftones page is a bit of wrong place to talk about the band America, here is their page on this site

And to answer your question it looks like they've never been considered.
