John was a very talented singer and song writer who sang from the heart about the things in his life that deeply touched him. Sadly he was taken away from us much too soon. I wish to God that he had checked the fuel tanks on that plane before taking off in that joke of a plane . And because he carelessly did not, it cost him his life. What a horrible tragedy.
You would never get me to go up in one of those :"experimental planes" Half of the ones that have been made have crashed and killed the people that were flying them, they are just plain dangerous. They are meant to look at and to learn from, NOT to fly and anyone who does get up in one is taking their life in their very hands and taking the chance of getting killed the way John did. I cant even imagine what John felt when his plane smashed straight down into the rocks full force. His funeral was held on my Birthday - October 17,1997, the same year that my dad died from a cancer brain tumor. Dad & John - RIP
I was looking through my parents' vinyl collection the other day, and I noticed some records of John Denver. Now, as I listen to his music, I can see why they owned these records. My parents always joke around saying that I know more music of their youth than they do themselves! :-D
