Both myself and my late mother were (and still am, for me) huge fans of John Denver. I was actually the one responsible for getting my mom on the bandwagon.
When I was 11 years old (don't ask- a long time ago, lol!) she spotted an ad in the paper that he was going to be performing in a concert in a nearby city. She knew that I liked him, so she decided to ask me if I wanted to go. Well, of COURSE I did!
Amazingly, that concert was on my 12th birthday, which made it extra-special. When we both went in to the concert, I was the only JD fan, but by the time it was over, Mom had been bitten by the bug too. His voice and music enchanted us both so much that we joined a JD fan club that had a notice up on one of the windows of the facility.
There were more concerts that followed that one- all of them awesome. We had almost every album he ever made, I learned nearly all his songs word-for-word, and any time he was going to be on TV we watched and Mom taped it. (Unfortunately most of those tapes were destroyed when a pipe in our home burst years ago.
As the anniversary of his death approaches again, I've found myself thinking about him more than usual. Is anyone else here a JD fan? Do you have any favorite songs? Ever seen him in concert? Ever met him? (if you have, I envy you!
Even if you aren't a fan, I'd like to hear from anyone who just appreciates John and/or his music.
