Reader: John Denver was a Colorado treasure, and anyone who disagrees is an idiot
As an intro to a photo gallery featuring shots of John Hickenlooper and other attendees at the John Denver Colorado Hall of Fame induction concert, reviewed by Backbeat's Dave Herrera, I shared my strongly held feeling that JD's music is vomit-inducing. Unsurprisingly, there was some disagreement on that point, as evidenced by this passionate post.

Mr. Roberts, your writeup "sucks", as you say. I guess you are trying to be cute and controversial, at the expense of a great tribute to a great songwriter and conservationist who left a lasting legacy. It is too bad you post your small-minded opinion as fact, but luckily, readers can go to the Westword to read a decent story covering this momentous event.
