    Too many unfounded rumors, but I have the facts because I was there.
    WOW - how did I miss that we had a real NTSB investigator at the scene of Denvers crash? Brown pelicans flying with the plane??

    It was sad. He was too young and a sympathetic character. Whenever I hear "Thank God I'm A Country Boy", I always think, "So why did you die in the surf in California?"

    Here is the NTSB summary and official accident report:

    Don't know if I've ever responded to a 6 year old comment before, but I LOVE IT when people who are full of shit get called out on it.

    I think ol' John began to lose touch with reality once his career humped, and he was on the down slide. First he wants to be the first folk singer in space, then he writes a plan for feeding the world by tapping into the economies of a nations. He was dealing with numbers and ideals he could not possibly grasp, but he placed himself at the center of each event. My impression is, he was a talented musician and singer, but he just kept trying to squeeze the public for attention when the world had moved on. I take it, he was a nasty drunk, too.
