Metheny hateration on Kenny G

The noted jazz guitarist rips out a few locks of Kenny's hair, accusing the smooth jazz sax man of shitting on Louis Armstrong's grave.

That's awesome. The Orb was hip as hell to sample Metheny for "Little Fluffy Clouds."

Wow, Kenny G is a total tool (not that he wasn't before). I had no idea he did that. How much more disgusting can that man be?

That was a great article though, thanks for posting that.

Kenny G holds (or held) the Guiness record for blowing. seriously.
He has a record on the books for holding a sustained blow on the saxomophone

kenny g decided that it was appropriate for him to defile the music of the man who is probably the greatest jazz musician that has ever lived by spewing his lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, fucked up playing all over one of the great louis’s tracks
haha... c'mon man... tell us how you REALLY feel...

there must be hundreds, if not thousands of sax players around the world who are simply better improvising musicians than kenny g on his chosen instruments. it would really surprise me if even he disagreed with that statement.
C'mon Pat, tell us how you really feel! He means Kenny G sucks so bad, it would surprise us if even he disagreed with that!

My sister used some shit Kenny G song during her wedding and at the reception for their first dance together. The fucking name of the song was printed on the damn invites and everything. It was one long day, I can tell ya!

This story is a little old, but related to this whole episode, the best response was Richard Thompson's live-only song I Agree With Pat Metheney, which hacks the crap outta Kenny G as only Richard can. Why Mr. Thompson is not a millionaire ten times over and Hoobastank can't wait to release another snoozer on us will forever boggle me...

That's a really fun song. A great celtic drinking song for music dorks.

Richard and Pat are two of my favorite musicians.

Hell, check out Loper's tops of 2003:

Pat Metheny - One Quiet Night...
Richard Thompson Band - June; Penn's Landing, Philadelphia, PA




But maybe GloNo should do some kind of article on this. Metheny's right. Where are the critics?
