[Kristofferson: The Wild American]]

Having been a Kris Kristofferson fan since the early seventies, I was looking forward to reading this biography. However, I have to say that it was a great disappointment. To me, the whole book felt like a means to a financial end only for Stephen Miller and as one of the previous reviewers states, it seems very much a cut and paste job. I felt most of what was written felt the need to emphasise the negative aspects in KK's life and certainly denigrates the musical output since the earlier material. As a fan who has all of his albums (bar a Star Is Born and the compilations), I find comments on most of them unfair. Albums such as Spooky Lady's Sideshow, Surreal Thing, Who's To Bless amongst others, are some of my favourites and whereas I am not making my views on his output as "KK can do no wrong for me", I find that Stephen Miller's view of the material and the comments on his voice sound like a journalist being asked to review music that is just a job to him. Yes, I accept that the general view in the press and music business is that album sales are the be all and end all of music opinion, but it shouldn't detract from the fact that fans of the artiste will like it more than the majority and therefore it should have some artistic merit. I confess, I cannot comment so much on the films that KK was involved in as I have only seen a small number of them, although I have the dvd of Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid I and I did enjoy Heaven's Gate and Convoy and I suppose like Stephen Miller, he has to earn a crust. As to KK's political views, I may be wrong, but I couldn't help detecting a feeling of disapproval on the part of the author. The comment that really did irritate, was the one suggesting that the one man concerts were an "acquired taste".

Knowing very little about Kristofferson's life I came to this biography looking to be informed and informed I was. Its a decent read, although there are huge gaps in it, but you do get to know the man slightly and grasp an understanding of his approach to songwriting and performing. What one hopes is that he will produce his own memoirs but he may never which would be quite sad, to say the least as i'm sure they would be highly entertaining and extremely informative and well written.

For fans of Kris this is a good read - until his autobiography what else is there ?

I was not sure of some facts - they contradict what I have heard/read elsewhere.
And sections were just cut and paste from other sources (i.e dvd of Kris his life and work).

Some strange insights - i.e, Kristoffersons beard containing silver hairs = he is an aging star. Or maybe he was just too busy living a hell of a life to dye his beard ??

Some great pictures though.

I would say the best Kristofferson book available!

Reasonably fair recounting of a wonderful artist Perhaps a little to much emphasis on the plots of some of his movie plots but overall a good read
