Although younger readers may only know Kris Kristofferson as the gruff mentor to Blade in the movie trilogy, the bearded legend was consider one of the greatest songwriters of his generation and the amount of musicians who have performed his material is staggering. Kristofferson began singing his own material in the 70’s and although he was popular, he became far more famous for his acting. Kristofferson should be in the Hall for his songwriting contributions, but as a performer alone, he faces a very uphill climb for induction.
