Silver tongued devil KRIS KRISTOFFERSON admits to shocking memory loss as pals fear the WORST.

The multitalented Kris, now 77, considers himself on the of the lucky ones – to be successful not only  as country music singer, songwriter and musician to movie actor and burgeoning sex symbol of the 1970'.

Kris admitted to Fox411 though that despite the many high points he’s wrestling with a potentially grim – low point, He’s suffering from one of the debilitating effects of being a seven-decader.

“I wish my memory weren't so bad,” Kris confessed. “They tell me it’s from all the football and boxing and the concussions that I got. A couple of years ago my memory just started going.”

But fret not, Kris admits, "But I can remember my songs so I can perform, but other than that…"

Despite his hedonistic adventures through the decades the writer of Janis Joplin’s “Me and Bob by McGee” and costar with Barbra Streisand in “A Star is Born” is still kicking it old-style.

He’s starring in a newly released indie flick "The Motel Life," which kicked off a month-long fest at Cinefamily honoring life and career called "Kris Kristofferson: A Cowboy in Hollywood."

“I can't think of anything that I could do that I haven't done,” Kris said. “Maybe if I were to write and direct a film, but I don't think I will ever do that.

“I just feel so lucky…”
