    He was first misdiagnosed with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Turns out he had Lyme, and the treatment is improving his severe memory issues:

    I saw this yesterday. I am a huge fan of his on so many levels, and share so many of his views. Now I share a disease with him, and I wish I didn't for his sake.

    Lyme is transcending generations of Stars in life, and in the media which follow them.

    Kris Kristofferson played the Glastonbury festival the other day and that got me Googling him and finding out he has lyme. There's a very good interview in the HuffPo with his wife, describing Kris' misdiagnosis (Alzheimer's) and the long journey of treatment and improvement.

    Johnny Depp took a turn on guitar during his Glastonbury gig, which you can watch here if you're in the UK:

    Might find it on YouTube otherwise.

    Kris K is clearly not in the greatest of health, but from what his wife says he's made huge gains with treatment from a lyme-literate doc. That he can play a major festival at all says something. Great guy, and a treat to see him still performing those wonderful songs:

    (Bradley Cooper was playing guitar, too, just in case there wasn't enough star power on stage)
