This "biography" is FICTION with BAD acting!
on August 17, 2004
From the first minute of this so called biography, the facts have been tossed out the window. (They've got John singing "This Old Guitar" a full 10 years before he wrote it).
The list of inaccuracies is too long to list here (anyone who only saw this Movie would be shocked to learn that John has a brother! and a manager named Jerry . . . and TALENT!)
Hal Thau had a whole lot less to do with John's success than his manager Jerry Weintraub.
Flying for me was written for the Challenger Crew in 1986, not before his father died in 1982.
Geesh folks, how hard is it to check facts?
John deserved far better.
Note to Chad Lowe: John did not whine all the time and he did not writhe around on stage when he sang.
The only thing mildly amusing about this abomination is the whle 14 seconds devoted to his second marriage.
If you wanna know about John Denver, read his book, listen to his music, and watch The Wild Life Concert. THAT is John Denver.
