General Discussion / Finally someone who agree that JOHN could play!

This is a pretty cool article.  It's called: So You Think You Know John Denver?
Love how the first thing they say is:
John Denver could play hellacious guitar.

Today, it's easy to forget about this side of Denver. You won't hear it on endlessly recycled studio mega-hits like Annie's Song, swaddled in the cheesy overproduction typical of the era's corporate soft rock.

But he had a broader musical palette, and much more going on as a songwriter and artist, than stuff like that represents.
History is an ongoing process of revising what we think we know. Today, many remember John Denver, if they think about him at all, as a soft-rock schlockmeister. So it's time to flip the script. Below are twelve tracks that capture Denver from some unaccustomed angles—and argue that his memory and art deserve better.

CORBIE...I decided to post HOW TO here, as it was easier for me to SEE (preview) what I was trying to show you.

How to post a photobucket photo on JD site

FIRST you have to have your photos uploaded from your computer to photobucket. This is the only hosting site I the only one I know how to talk about. (There are tons of other sites...some you use the little "button" at the top of the REPLY box, that looks like a wee framed Mona to the Earth...RIGHT UNDER the BOLD B.)

MOST IMPORTANT: what I see on my page is slightly different than you will, UNLESS you are a paid member. I had to upgrade when I filled up my free allotment.

AND EVEN if I go look at YOUR page..I see it like I see mine. So your page may vary slightly...but the CODES WILL BE THE SAME..

Once they are there, you can "Grab" the photo in two different ways.

Once on your page you will have rows and rows of photos with code under them.
Best to sort your photos into albums, or if you are like me with hundreds, you can't find them in one giant page.
SO..I just screen capped one row of mine.

This is a closeup of ONE you can see the code. THE ARROW is the code you COPY...(if you click on that will turn blue...then just copy)

THAT IMG CODE is now copied...or stored in your mouse, etc.(I'm a techno a horrible teacher)

THEN YOU..simply go to the POST on the JD site. Where you are making a reply or want to post your photo...and you DO NOT have to use any of the buttons there..
JUST PASTE that code you copied...INTO your REPLY POST.

IMPORTANT: Do a PREVIEW of your reply BEFORE hitting reply. YOU will be able to SEE your photo in the reply box, IN PREVIEW MODE. If not...well you did something wrong! LOL :) AND I suck at teaching...

Hold your cursor over the photo you want...these options will pop can move, delete whatever...but don't need them. JUST showing you what it looks like.

NOW...actually click on that PHOTO. AND it will open in a new page and look like THIS:

SEE HOW THE PHOTO is large now. AND most important, see the cods off to the RIGHT?

Now you have it copied in your mouse again...same as the first time.

DO the same thing....PASTE that code directly into the Reply box that you should have open, ready to post photos.

John Denver's old Aspen-area home sells for $2.75 Million

The new owners of the Aspen-area home originally owned by John Denver have no plans to raze and replace it with a new one....
That’s according to Jim Bineau, who along with his wife, Anita, represented the buyers of the home. Public records show Kilfinnan LLC, controlled by local couple Denis and Kelly O’Donovan, paid $2.75 million for the 570 Johnson Drive property. The guest residence was not sold as part of the deal, which was made public Dec. 8 by the Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder’s Office.

Jim Bineau said the couple plan to renovate the home, which originally was built in 1972 and remodeled in 1985. The home has a total heated area of 6,849 square feet with five bedrooms and 51/2 baths, property records show.

“(The new owners’) goal, from my understanding, is to redo it,” he said. “They like the features and the architecture but they’re interested in bringing it up to date.”

While not technically historic — the property is not listed on any historic registers local or national, said Cindy Hoeben, Pitkin County’s director of Community Development — it is a treasure trove for Denver fans.

“John’s spirit is there, I’m sure,” said a member of the Facebook page “Fans of John Denver Around the World,” which broke news of the sale Monday.

It also was one the first homes built in the gated Starwood neighborhood around the peak of singer-songwriter’s fame.

Dillon resident and radio personality Willie Hoevers told The Aspen Times in January 2015 that he was seeking investors to buy the property and convert it into a sanctuary for global peace talks. Hoevers said Thursday that the idea didn’t gain much ground.

“As a John Denver fan, you can’t hang onto everything forever,” he said. Rumors had been swirling on social media that the new owners would tear down the home.

“I know in the world of John Denver, people are up in arms,” Hoevers said.

Some members of Fans of John Denver Around the World clung to hopes that the property will remain preserved.

“I hope whoever bought it has appreciation for John and doesn’t change it,” said one person on the Denver fan page. “I’ll never see the place, but it’s comforting to know that John’s aesthetic influence on the property remains.”

Bineau, a broker with Coldwell Banker/Mason Morse, said Denver fans can rest easy that the home won’t be torn down.

“I would be frankly shocked if (the new owners) did that,” he said. “They’re into the history of the house and they love the house.”

Suzanne Wolff, assistant director of Community Development, which processes land-use applications for the county, said Thursday all that she was aware of for the property is a pending septic permit and a possible redesign of the home’s interior.

The O’Donovans once owned and operated Finbarr’s Irish Pub and Kitchen in the Hyman Avenue Mall.

Denver died in October 1997 after a private aircraft he was piloting crashed into Monterey Bay near Pacific Grove, California. He was 53.

Survivors of Denver sold the estate in February 1999 to New York-based entity DBZ Trust. At the time, main home sold for $2.38 million and the guesthouse brought in $1.3 million.

While DBZ sold the main home, it still has possession of the guest residence. Heidi Houston of Compass represented DBZ in the transaction.
