Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997), known professionally as John Denver, was an American singer-songwriter, actor, activist and humanitarian, whose greatest commercial success was as a solo singer, starting in the 1970s. He was one of the most popular acoustic artists of the decade and one of its best-selling artists. By 1974, he was firmly established as America's best-selling performer, and AllMusic has described Denver as "among the most beloved entertainers of his era". After traveling and living in numerous locations while growing up in his military family, Denver began his music career in folk music groups in the late 1960s. Throughout his life, Denver recorded and released approximately 300 songs, about 200 of which he composed, with total sales of over 33 million.

I like his song very much because the lyrics and composition both are nice and touch me.

leaving on a jet plane all right... he should have taken the bus.. he didn`t deserve to die!

He had such a sweet and clear voice. I can hear the joy in it in his earlier songs, as he was traveling the road to stardom. Sad that he seemed to lose himself later on; the joy in his voice and his eyes dimmed. I`ll always love the joy his music still brings into my home, especially Calypso and Thank God I`m a Country Boy -- they were all SWEET. Thanks for the music, John.

I will always be a John Denver Fan. His music, his words, his heart touched the world. I traveled many states to see several concerts. The last concert I had front row seats. FAR OUT!

Mark BattleJun 21, 2009

A buddy of mine years ago said that when he died,he wanted Annie`s Song played at his funeral, I guess because it`s one of the most beautiful lyrics ever written!

AleishaJan 7, 2009

I think it`s very ironic that he passed in a plane crash - after writing leaving on a jet plane. "hold me like you`ll never let me go"

Andy MedhurstNov 7, 2007

John Denver was one of the few singers that could reach out to any age group,any colour and any creed he was the best
