Sarah Carson The Telegraph 22 JANUARY 2016 wrote;

"It was hard to believe, during Kris Kristofferson's sold-out evening at [London] Islington's Union Chapel, that the country singer-songwriter will turn 80 this year.

"Kristofferson's voice creaked with fragility here, as it did during "Casey's Last Ride" from his debut album from 1970, when he spoke of "neon-darkened corridors of silent desperation", describing the tragic reunion of former partners."

However, that may be the reporter's interpretation rather than the singer's.
