Rural Ledge-ucation #84: America's Dewey Bunnell

One of the many benefits of this new newspaper gig is the opportunity to interview some great musicians. Today's episode is one of those moments, as America guitarist Dewey Bunnell calls in to chat about his forty years in the music business. Besides highlighting some of the band's great songs, we chat about opening for Pink Floyd and The Beach Boys, working with George Martin, and their possible influence on the Americana genre. Oh yeah, and we also talk about the silly myth that "Horse With No Name" is actually a Neil Young song.
As we waited for Bunnell's call, we also checked out a couple of tracks from the This Is 40 soundtrack, along with a cover of one of America's biggest hits, "Sister Golden Hair", by The Dandy Warhols. To listen to this show, search for The Ledge in the iTunes store, Stitcher, or...
