Does anyone know where the Rocky Mountain High album cover photo was taken.
"Rocky Mountain High" was the song I played at my first guitar recital. RIP John Boy.To get the real John Denver experince down a fifth of whiskey while walking down and back from the falls and hit a tree with a porsche on your way back to your hotel room/ camp site
He had lost his drivers license from to many DUIs. An ultra lite requires no license to fly one. John Denver crashed his ultra lite plane intoxicated! Some roll model. Lucky He didn't kill someone on the groundI'm not a big fan either but you have to give the guy credit for
A. Being good at his craft.
B. Being successful at his vocation.
C. Living large (he died flying a small solo aircraft).
None of which are easy.
kyle! i love you!The internet is a funny thing: I never thought I'd be defending John Denver. As I said earlier, I have never been much of a fan, but that doesn't take away the good things he accomplished. So thanks, Countingfish, I appreciate you putting the facts out there, as opposed to others who throw out trash talk just because they don't like someone.
Like all of us, John had good and bad traits. And who hasn't done some dumb crap in their lives? As for his accomplishments, they stand pretty tall, whether you like his music or not. In addition to all his record sales, giant fan base and multiple music awards he co-founded a renowned charity organization. Wish I could lay claim to any of those things.
Trash talking is easy, doing stuff well is hard.
And for the record, I never called him a role model (roll is what you do with a kayak), I just stated that he was good at what he did and "lived large", as in working at enjoying life.
