KRIS KRISTOFFERSON b.JUNE 22nd 1936
this is for ann-marie. she probably didn't know her object of desire was born today. he's 73yo today & he's been on the other side of both his careers(music & film)for years now. i can't say he ever did anything for me as a film star(maybe in the infamous bomb, heaven's gate)but kris has written a pocketful of great songs, some actually redefining WHAT a songwriter could write about. his last album, this old road, wasn't too bad either.
just so we don't lose sight of the fact that he's been up & down in his career:
probably a lowpoint of two careers, kris & sam(ali macgraw never really was riding too high).
