( from WIKIPEDIA)
The duo had six Top 40 singles between 1976 and 1979. Among their hits was "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" (written by Parker McGee) (1976), a cover of Utopia's "Love Is the Answer", as well as "Nights Are Forever Without You", (another McGee composition), and "We'll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again". Dan Seals, the brother of Jim Seals of the equally successful 1970s soft-rock duo Seals & Crofts, became a successful country performer in the 1980s, scoring hits such as "Meet Me in Montana" (with Marie Osmond) and "Bop".
**Seals' childhood nickname was "England Dan" because he was a fan of The Beatles, and occasionally affected an English accent.**
John Colley's last name was shortened to "Coley" for ease of pronunciation; "Ford" was added as his middle name for flow purposes, thus England Dan and John Ford Coley.
Seals died on March 25, 2009 following treatment for mantle cell lymphoma.
I found this video of one of their best songs ! I loved this soft , mellow sound!

I found that interesting and something I hadn't known before! I guess it's like most Beatles fans always say..."Everything is Beatles connected in some way!"
