John Denver singing "Great Balls of Fire"?
« on: June 24, 2013, 08:07:54 PM »
I just heard that John has sung the Jerry Lee Lewis hit "Great Balls of Fire" several times in concerts and shows - it was one of my favorite non-JD songs, so it would be very interesting if John has sung it! Has anybody ever listened or watched John singing it? ;) I'm quite curious about it.

Go to YouTube and search for John Denver Rock Selection. Someone posted 40 minutes of John Denver singing rock songs. I have not heard much of it myself as sitting at the computer for 40 minutes would drive me nuts. Maybe though 'Great Balls Of Fire' is there.
