    I think you are right Joe Riley. The material I read last night after the discussion said much the same thing. He may have showed a lack of judgment by not topping off his tanks, and should have had more transition training on the aircraft, but it seemed to be an accident purely and simply. I had it when great entertainers have untimely deaths, and there have been so many!! Some of them I think of often, and just shake my head. Most of them could have been prevented.

    I think I liked john Denver after the fact, meaning when I was older and into country. As for The Monkees, there was no shame in liking them...at least for girls.

    JOHN DENVER’S HOUSE IN ASPEN, COLORADO
    [​IMG]

    "John Denver and his first wife Annie Martell lived in Edina, Minnesota until the late 1960s. With the success of his latest solo album, John brought Annie to Colorado to scope out a site for a future home".

    "Colorado had always been a favorite destination for John, although he was not actually born here. He was born in Roswell, New Mexico of all places. His father was an officer in the Air Force and the family moved often from state to state. The young Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr had traveled through Denver and was taken by the beauty of the wondrous Colorado Rocky Mountains".

    John Denver had a very nice voice and was easy to listen to. My Mom was a big fan of his.I like a few of his songs. Like his movies too.
