A rare chance to check out a classic, Kris kristofferson will be at the San Jose Civic with special guest Los Tex-Maniacs with Mingo Saldivar.
"God, there's nothing like writing up a Kristofferson date to make you feel like a worthless underachiever. Did you know he tested for the role of Superman? He could have punched the shit out of Lex Luthor, drank a quart of Jack Daniels, and then sat on Luthor's chest and wrote a song about the experience that would have gone to #1 on the country charts for six months. Then he'd stick out his arm and a bald eagle would land on it. That Kristofferson is the namesake for the world's coolest cub in Fantastic Mr. Fox is an easy to parse joke. The real Kristofferson is: a retired Army captain in the Rangers, a former Golden Gloves boxer, a vampire (in the Blade movies) an ex- Rhodes scholar at Oxford, and a helicopter pilot. Oh, and he's released some albums, too, but only a couple dozen." - Richard von Busack, sanjose.com
