Kris Kristofferson, Tom Ghent and John Lincoln Wright 1986

Stagecoach, Blood and Orchids and the Last days of Jesse James were released, the miniseries Amerika was in production. The album, Repossessed, hit the stores. Kris Kristofferson was as busy in 1986 as he is today.

Moments that Matter

Life is made up of many moments. Even in 1986, Kris kept some time aside for himself, his friends, fellow songwriters and performers.

Kristofferson and Ghent (who wrote the song Whiskey, Whiskey which Kris recorded) had a surprise encounter.

This was taken backstage at a bandshell concert in Webster Ma. in 1986…..
Much to everyone’s surprise and delight, Kris had walked out on stage and joined me as I was singing “Whiskey Whiskey” In this photo, I have just introduced him to the late John Lincoln Wright who was sharing the bill with me.

Rita Coolidge Whiskey, Whiskey

I was really surprised many years ago, when I opened Billboard and saw a two page ad for the release of Rita’s single of my song “Whiskey Whiskey”

Tom Ghent

The song appeared on Rita’s 1972 album, The Lady’s Not For Sale. Priscilla Coolidge and Booker T Jones perform My Crew, on the same album.
