    Default Wis. man cited for 'rocking out' to John Denver

    Wis. man cited for 'rocking out' to John Denver

    FOND DU LAC, Wis. Ė Police responding to a complaint of loud noise have cited a Fond du Lac man for "rocking out" to the music of John Denver. A police who responded to the man's apartment last week could hear Denver's music through the door. The officer pounded on the door but the man didn't answer. Finally the officer found out the man's name from a neighbor and called to him, bringing the man to the door.

    When asked why he had the music so loud, the man said he was "rocking out."

    The Reporter newspaper in Fond du Lac reported that the 42-year-old was cited for unnecessary loud noise. The ticket could result in a fine of about $210.

    The late Denver is known for such hits as "Rocky Mountain High" and "Take Me Home, Country Roads."

    "Rocking out" and "John Denver" just don't seem to go together.

    Of course, you get some heavy band to do a cover of his songs, then maybe.

    A guy I used to work with told me once (without irony) he was getting ready to "rock out" to James Taylor.. Kind of a strange dude..

    As the above comments sensibly note, it is not possible to "rock out" to John Denver and, therefore the guy deserved his fine, and possibly even a custodial sentence.

    He either has no sense of what it truly means to "rock out", or he was lying to cover the fact that he keeps severed heads in his fridge.

    Either way, lock the bastard up.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Ironically, I got an E-mail notice today announcing an upcoming local concert by James Taylor and Carole King. I was interested in checking it out, as I've always been a fan of Taylor's, but check out these ticket prices........

    I think when it comes to hearing antiquated music, I'll wait for a VH tour til I get out my checkbook.

    I don't know, I've lived through a few nights when the burn barrel was in full effect, and the adult beverages as well, when John Denver's "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" was put on, and whilst I wouldn't exactly call it "rocking out", it was a damn fine time to be alive there for a moment or two.

    maybe by "rocking out" he meant getting stoned. Not like you're going to tell that to a cop though.

    I was looking at this, as well on Carole King's website, where the only tix available were $119.
