GUEST,Eric John Denver - 60's Folk Singer (108* d) RE: John Denver - 60's Folk Singer 12 Jan 05

I was a long time fan from seeing him with PPM and Tom Paxton on BBC2 in the early 70's and bought all his albums after the Poems and Prayers and Promises. Yes he was saccharine at times and his later work got over-orchestrated but I agree with Big Mick
"The simple fact is that he was a wonderful entertainer, and that he knew how to write, and/or interpret music. Much of what he did was, indeed, saccharin. But he wore his emotion on his sleeve, and put his money where his mouth was."
I hardly listen to him anymore but when I want to smile I do same as when I want a bit of angst I listen to Scott Walker.
JD was a flawed human being - WOW! - so am I and though I try not to say bad things about people I will make an exception for the a..hole who shares my name and one of my nicknames.
