Kris Kristofferson – Sister Sínead

This is a delight, as Kris Kristofferson sings a song he wrote for Sínead O’Connor after her harsh treatment at the hands of a Madison Square Garden audience in 1992, during a 30th birthday celebration for Bob Dylan.

Kristofferson introduced the Irish firebrand and was heard to whisper to her, as the booing began, ‘Don’t let the bastards get you down’.

Two weeks before, O’Connor tore up a picture of the Pope on US TV in protest at the conduct of the Catholic Church. She was right then, and hindsight has not changed that.
