They don’t make Renaissance men like Kris Kristofferson anymore — helicopter pilot, Rhodes scholar, Muppet confidante, movie star, and he writes and sings a little, too. He was living a few lives at once for a while, majoring in literature, then training as an Army ranger and moving on to man the mop bucket at a Nashville studio while he’d work on soon-to-be-immortal songs such as “Me and Bobby McGee.” In the last several years, a new generation has turned to his early work — reissue label extraordinaire Light in the Attic put out his first demos; Cinefamily screened his surface-street-noir classic Cisco Pike — and he’s reportedly re-energized after righting a misdiagnosis of Alzheimer’s and taking treatment for Lyme disease. Think of it as just one more unexpected twist in what will surely be one of the best American autobiographies ever written — you are writing one, right, Kris?
