John Denver to be honored with star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber is proud to announce that the late John Denver will be honored posthumously with the 2,531st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, October 24, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. PDT.

The star will be located at 7065 Hollywood Boulevard. “We are proud to honor one of America’s singing icons who has been missed for many years. Luckily for us we have his amazing music to remember him by,” stated Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Leron Gubler. Helping Gubler to unveil the star in the category of Recording will be two of Denver’s three children, Zak Deutschendorf and Jesse Belle Denver, who will accept the honor on behalf of the family. The Band Trampled by Turtles will be performing an acoustic version of Denver’s song “Annie’s Song. The band is in town for their performance that evening at the Fonda Theatre the evening of the star ceremony.

In celebration of John Denver’s recording career, a new Box set titled All of My Memories: The John Denver Collection will be released on November 4, through RCA/Legacy Recordings, a Division of Sony Music Entertainment. The deluxe 90-song, 4 CD set box set is a first comprehensive multi-label overview to span 1964 to 1997, including six previously unreleased tracks, demos, promo rarities, live performances, limited edition and private pressings, and more. Special guest performers include the Mitchell Trio, Olivia Newton-John, Sylvie Vartan, Placido Domingo, Emmylou Harris, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, the Muppets and others.

One of the world’s best-known and most-loved performers, Denver earned international acclaim as a songwriter, performer, actor, environmentalist and humanitarian. Denver’s career spanned four decades and his music has outlasted countless musical trends and garnered numerous awards and honors.

Denver’s artistic journey began at age eleven when he was given his grandmother’s guitar. He eventually took guitar lessons and joined a boys’ choir, which led him at age twenty to pursue his dream of a career in music. In 1963 he struck out on his own, moving to Los Angeles to be in the heart of the burgeoning music scene. It was during this time that Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. was urged by friends to change his name if a recording career were to be in his future. He took his stage name from the beautiful capital city of his favorite state, Colorado. Later in life, Denver and his family settled in Aspen, Colorado and his love for the Rocky Mountains inspired many of his songs.

Denver experienced his first major break in the music industry when he was chosen from 250 other hopefuls as lead singer for the popular Mitchell Trio. He gained recognition when his song “Leaving On A Jet Plane” was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, becoming their first and only number one hit. When the Mitchell Trio disbanded, Denver was climbing up the pop charts as a solo act with such songs as “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine On My Shoulders,” “Annie’s Song,” “Back Home Again,” “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” and “Calypso,” solidifying his position as one of the top stars of the 1970s.

By his third album in 1970, Denver’s social and political leanings were defined more clearly. Denver was one of the first artists to share an environmental message through his musicwith such songs as “Rocky Mountain High” and “Whose Garden Was This.”

Denver was also the first artist from the West to do a multi-city tour of mainland China, in October 1992. He was somewhat astonished to discover how popular and well-known his songs were in China. “‘Country Roads,’” he was told, “is the most famous song written in the West.”

Among Denver’s many gifts, he was a talented photographer. “Sweet, Sweet Life: The Photographic Works of John Denver” represents a chance for the world to experience life as John Denver lived it. Throughout his lifetime, Denver captured thousands of images as he traveled across the globe, spreading his message of peace, love, and conservation. Through his mastery of composition, lighting, and the decisive moment, Denver became an accomplished photographer. Substrate Gallery in Hollywood is proud to present over 40 never-before-seen photographs of distinction from the celebrated musician from October 24th to November 23rd. The Gallery will be showing and selling limited editions of Denver’s personal photography, as curated by representatives of The John Denver Estate and Ramses Granados from the Substrate Fine Art Gallery. The public is invited to join in on taking a rare and unique look into the artist’s life, mind and heart!

Denver contributed his talents to the benefit of many charitable and environmental causes and received numerous civic and humanitarian awards over the years. Fans responded to his heartfelt urgings about ecology, peace, and compassion that were consistently delivered in a gentle manner on his records and at live performances.

The world was left in shock when it was announced that John Denver died tragically in a plane crash on October 12, 1997. On March 12, 2007, Colorado’s Senate passed a resolution to make Denver’s trademark 1972 hit “Rocky Mountain High” one of the state’s two official state songs, and on March 7, 2014, West Virginia’s Senate passed a resolution to make “Take Me Home, Country Roads” one of their state’s two official state songs.

Today, millions of fans old and new enjoy the work of this extraordinary performer. Thirty albums and four decades after he began, John Denver’s music is as relevant as ever. His humanitarian work continues to strengthen our global village, and his dynamic celebration of life, spirit and nature is a powerful inspiration to us all.
