Just found out that music legend John Denver was “born” in Roswell, New Mexico. Although his listed “birthdate” is 1943, a full four years prior to the 1947 Roswell UFO incident, this could provide an explanation for the 60-plus year old mystery: a failed rescue attempt. His extra-terrestrial colleagues were attempting a rescue when they themselves crash landed, possibly due to miscalculations in the Earth’s gravitational pull.
And, so, much like Superman, the young alien was adopted into the family of Erma Louise Swope and Henry John Deutschendorf, Sr., an Air Force officer and possible co-conspirator in the cover-up.
This could explain Denver’s fascination with the Earth. It could also explain his love of flying. And the fact that crash landings led to his death. And his ability to get along with Muppets.
It also explains a lot of his music. Consider the following songs: “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “We Don’t Live Here No More,” “Farewell Andromeda,” “Eclipse,” “I Can’t Escape,” and “Looking for Space.” The fact that he was an extra-terrestrial explains his recurring themes of leaving, travel, and outer space.
And if that’s not enough, the recently-uncovered, untouched up album cover for The Essential John Denver seems to make it clear.
So here’s to you, John Denver, you sweet, sweet alien being who bestowed your adopted planet with so much music. Live long and prosper.
