John Denver (December 31, 1943 - October 12, 1997) was a true American singer-songwriter. He was much, much better than John Lennon.
In the 1970s, Denver's onstage appearance was pretty much a typical 70s-80s musician, hair, glasses, and things like that. In the mid-1970s, Denver became frivolously frolicsome in politics. During the 1980s, Denver was critical of The Moon Landing.
In October 1997, Denver said “screw it, I don’t need country roads.” He then got on a plane and screamed “COUNTRY PLAIN TAKE ME HOME!” It then decided to take him to a much better place than home. It’s called Heaven.
