Kris Kristofferson 1991 – Singer/Songwriter was released on CD and I suspect the daughter of a fan became a big fan in her own right. I could be wrong about the second bit, but the pic that Emily shared with us is so right.
There is nothing quite like that moment when you realise that someone you love could be “getting” the importance that Kris Kristofferson has in your life, the hope that he might do the same for them. For many, the moment never happens.
Emily joined us today, and I have a feeling that she will fit right in. We love sharing, chatting about and saving the times when the Silver Tongued Devil has climbed off our music players and into our realities. It doesn’t matter how short these interactions might be – Kris communicates through his songs and has helped countless people make it through nights, days and situations. The man and artist is a life skill.
Star-struck at the Old Vienna Coffee House
Kris and Emily – the Story
This was taken outside the Old Vienna Coffee House in Westborough, MA in the summer of 1991. Kevin, a roadie, is holding the Umbrella. I was 13.
I’d been to both of his shows (with my mom, a super-fan) and we’d waited outside afterwards.
Kris walked down the line of waiting fans and looked at me and said, “look at that smile!”.
I was totally star struck. I don’t know if I responded at all. My mom caught the moment on her cameraEmily Granelli
No footage of Kris Kristofferson, but the clip does give some idea of the atmosphere of the venue and the times
Emily Gmitter saw Kris at this very venue as well. She says that it was a great venue, as well as (obviously) a great gig.
