Gerry Beckley Takes Us on a Trip Through America for This Rockers’ Block

Can he do magic? Well, hear for yourself.


Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too garbage-y to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog each song from the beginning to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.

God bless America! The folk-rock duo (once a trio) has been making beautiful music together for 45 years, which gives BlastEcho plenty of ammunition for this edition of Rockers’ Block, featuring America multi-instrumentalist/singer Gerry Beckley. Did we slip in any from Beckley’s many solo albums? Well, no, but you’d be wise to check out his latest, Carousel, which was released earlier this month.

And how exactly did Beckley perform? Well, he wasn’t perfect, but he started off that way. Take a listen!
