John Denver dominated the 1970s with sold-out concerts and chart-topping music. Wink Martindale spoke with Denver in Los Angeles in 1975 in the midst of this success. Denver recounts the road that began with him dropping out of college and moving to Los Angeles to find work as a singer.
Denver passionately describes his attachment to music beyond entertainment and his desire to connect with audiences on a personal level. While he's lax to espouse any specific causes, he works to convey his own personal feelings and opinions in a world where he feels music has evolved into a lifestyle instead of just simple entertainment.
