I saw John Denver in a concert once
and immediately feel in love with his voice.

I CAN'T be the only one around here who appreciated him!!!!

Let's hear it from the John Denver fans.

1. John Denver was good :)
But then again I like Singer/Songwriters from the 70's...

2. I liked him too. That's high praise from a city girl like me.

Other country singers I like are Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison.

4. Me, too, me too, me too, ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, the naysayers can chime in now, but I own a copy of every CD he produced. While I listen to all kinds of music, there is just something so comforting about listening to his voice.

BTW, true DEMS/Progressives should have recognized his contributions long ago (to the environment, to global peace, to human rights). Sadly, many did not, or were too consumed with determining whether he was "corny & uncool" or not. I think that is one of the biggest tragedies of his too-early death. We surely could use his voice now for so many reasons.

5. I saw him live once
He put on a great show. Honestly I don't know anyone who didn't like him, and I know lots of people who love him. He was far out!

9. Bought my first JD record at 7yrs. old, been a huge fan since
Saw him over 20 times thru the years and had the lucky chance to meet him backstage once. I miss him dearly. I often wonder what beautiful songs he would have written if he were alive today. He would be truly sad to see what * has done to our world.
