RIP Lyle Mays (1953 – 2020) Lyle Mays was an American musician. He shares writing credits on “This Is Not America” (1985) “This Is Not America” (1985) I saw the film that composition stems from. I saw that film when it came out and never forgot the music. I later bought the twelve inch. I sold my collection of records when I moved into my current apartment in 2015.
