I think is a wonderful tribute to share Denver's vision.I have said in others music topix what 's important in music is to encourage to old /new musicians and singers to redo old famous songs. It will be a continual renewal,a musical and cultural heritage and John Denver must never die. I hope some Denver's songs will be redone for famous singers and why not they will be a hit again so new generation knows who he was .Elvis,the Beatles,Sinatra so why not John..... He was an excellet songwriter-singer.A country icon.Don't let him really die!!!!!!

The John Denver's purpose in performing was to communicate the joy experience in living." And the song he's singing somewhere,is a prayer to non-believers come and stand beside him we can find a better way " We follow you where you go what you did and who you know......so many words written by you with a life deep meaning.You're still among us with all your music words and dreams.

I'm never get tired of reading some word's songs from John Denver. I wonder if he was alive how many things he had done. All his songs are about that special love and worry about Colorado, nature,family ,friends and sometimes to get old...He couldn't see that.We neither.The sunshine, the leaves,the rainbow,the mountains will keep too many John's secrets he never revealed about himself.

I know a lot of people remember a lot of John's Denver songs.One of my favorites is " RHYMES AND REASONS "To seek the wisdom of the children".What was at his head ? who knows.He was so clever when he wrote about the future world, I guess even he didn't realize it.They're not simple songs he wrote just to record them...I feel he always wanted to gave us more than a simple song." A message "

Carmen,
I think in Rhymes and Reasons he meant that the future lies within the children. That they are to become of what lies ahead of us. They determine, in part what they have learned from us as teachers, and what they have learned as students, and combine the two to form one universal truth. It's all about innocence,or simplicity. Kinda like... The essence of magic is...simplicity...it all fits together. Humans just make too much of it Carmen. John Denver's way of saying it was simple and sweet.
Ahhhhhh.... Ammm I making sense Carmen?

I've often wondered that myself Carmen. Then I hear him sing a song like "Aspen Glow" and it makes me cry because I have never been there before but can feel everything he feels just from that song! I truly know then that John know he has touched a soul with his music, and somewhere up there he is taking count. ;)

That's true Carmen. I was watching John last night on youtube and it was wonderful looking at him sing! Remembering does keep him very much alive! He was such a great entertainer and so full of life with those dancing eyes!
