Man Day Monday: Kris Kristofferson

>> Sunday, September 11, 2011

Meet Kris. Kris spent most of the 1960's and 1970's writing songs so good that they'd be recorded by over 500 different artists including Johnny Cash, Janis Joplin, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Not only that, they weren't just your average radio fare. Kris basically did for country what Dylan did for pop, that is he brought a serious personal element and a political edge to the mainstream without sounding too cheesy. That Masters in Literature from Oxford probably helped him sharpen his writing skills... or maybe it was his stint as a Captain in the U.S. Army flying helicopters that gave him a unique perspective... or maybe it was his place on his college rugby, track, and football teams that gave him his abs... err... wait.

Let's just get to the point. Did I mention that Kris is a total babe? He's so hunky that I had to put the images after the text so that you wouldn't get distracted... so hunky that I might have an album of his framed solely for my own visual delight... so hunky that he makes the movie A Star is Born more than watchable. Oh yeah, did I not mention he's an actor, too?

What more could you want really?

he is definitely under rated in the cool department. he can write a damn song. people justifiably cream themselves over "Me and Bobby McGhee", but tunes like "Sunday Morning Coming Down" rule.

Thanks for bringing back Man Mondays, Sukka!
