    Me and Kris Kristofferson

    Here I am onstage with Kris Kristofferson and my band...and my 1975 G-41. (I brought my two favorite acoustics to this gig, just in case.)
    I told Susan she could play my F-50R that Kris signed earlier at soundcheck, because she can't really play the huge G-41 comfortably, but she was so awe-struck, she could barely remember to sing! LOL! "Busted flat in Baton Rouge, waiting for a train..."
    Left to right:
    Craig Stull, lead guitar, Kris Kristofferson, me (geeky fan-boy smile and all!), and my g/f and singer Susan Ritter.
    (Not pictured, but still onstage and playing...David Moscoe keys, Vince Tividad bass and Tom Fillman drums.)

    Great photos again, Retro!

    If you missed it, here's the excellent cover story on Kristofferson in Rolling Stone from last year:

    Yes indeed Harry. Probably one of these. Nice I'm sure if you get a good one.

    Yep Sandy, it was one of those, or, rather, the original one they're modeled after.

    Thank you. The bassist appears to have good taste - looks like a Jack Casady Signature...
