Every camping trip we did with my family from the 70's to late 80's 
consisted of John Denver being played in  the VW camper. ARGH! 
How I hated Denver with a passion! I'm a metalhead, I need some Priest,Van 
Halen, Maiden please! The invention of the walkman was a 
savior! Seriously, "Country Roads" over and over was bit much.

Of course years later I had to wonder how my parents were going to take the 
Denver death. After reading his book I was glad to see 
that even a soft country star had his rockstar life metal moments.
