LISTEN TO RECORDINGS
"In The Music Room"
The first time John Denver and
I played together, in my Aspen living room, 1973, we thought we’d played for
about an hour, but it had really been almost three.
Time disappears when musicians find a common groove. It’s the possibility of that magic that keeps musicians playing.
The band was John, myself, and
Dick Kniss on bass. I played lead guitar, dobro, pedal steel, and sang the low
harmony. Then we added John Sommers.
In the audio tapes of his book, John says “It was that constellation, along with some terrific studio musicians, that carried me thru some big years touring and recording”.
My first studio work with him
was John Denver’s Greatest Hit’s, Volume 1, then Back Home Again,
Evening With John Denver, Rocky Mountain Christmas,
Windsong, Spirit, and Greatest Hits Volume 2. And he included a few songs that I wrote for him.
For his very biggest years,
1973-77, I played all the concerts, TV show&, records.
It was quite a ride.
Buttermilk West (Aspen) 1975, prepping for Christmas For Cowboys, one of the songs John chose for the TV special 'Rocky Mountain Christmas'.
It drew the biggest viewing audience in the history of music TV shows. 60 million people watched it. Back when that was a lot
