Does anybody remember John Denver?

Most likely people under age 40 have no idea who John Denver was. He had a string of pop hits. Then he died in a airplane crash in some sort of experimental plane? He might have been a goofy granola-eating liberal but he did write some pretty good songs in the “folk-rock” style back in the 1970s.

His first big success was writing a song called “Leaving On A Jet Plane” which was a big hit for Peter, Paul & Mary, another group of granola eating liberals.

His real life name was Henry John Deutschendorf Jr.

Yikes, that’s a mouthful.

I remember him in a movie with George Burns. I think it was called “Oh God” or something like that. Back in the late 1970s. Not a bad film.

It’s just weird that he dropped off the face of the earth. Nobody remembers him.

“Annie’s Song” is my favorite song from him. I remember hearing that song on the radio the day that Richard Nixon resigned the presidency. I will always associate that song with Richard Nixon resigning.
