John Denver was one of the top five best selling artists of all time with 14 gold and eight platinum albums in the United States and was popular around the world. John Denver was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1996.
Born December 31st 1943 in Roswell, New Mexico.
Died at Pacific Grove, California On October 12 1997, when the single engined plane he was piloting crashed into the sea. He was 53 years old.

Released in 1973, Greatest Hits only sums up a handful of years of hitmaking for John Denver, but what years those were. Between 1971 and 1973, Denver actually didn't have that many hits, but they were songs that defined him -- "Take Me Home, Country Roads," "Rocky Mountain High," and "Sunshine on My Shoulders." Those three songs, along with "Leaving on a Jet Plane" -- which he wrote but Peter, Paul & Mary made into a standard -- are all here, along with seven other early songs recorded between 1969 and 1973 that may not be familiar to the average casual fan, but all capture Denver's warm folk-pop at its best.
