I read a KG, review in the LA Times years ago. KG had played at the Playboy Jazz Fest at the HW Bowl. I can still quote the writer. "Oh, that I wished I had a poison blow dart as he danced up the isles like the pied piper." PLEASE jazz lovers go listen to Mike Brecker or Cannonball Adderley. KG is a fvkng hack!!!!!

He doesn't look very healthy. Does anyone know if he has any health issues?... Damn!

You forgot to include the "disso queen" nonsense this time. You're slipping. Stick to the schtick, bubele!

Good riddance!    

If she doesn't get much money, she could definitely get a role in a Lords of the Ring as some sort of elf critter. Kenny G can make up some of that money by designing toilet brushes that look like his head. Win-win!

Maybe she wanted him to have a plastic surgery and he refused?

I saw him walking around one night in San Juan, Puerto Rico about 2 years ago, holding hands with a very sexy young girl. He was a jerk when I asked for a picture. He was surrounded by a bunch of bodyguards although nobody seemed to care who he was. He's even uglier in person so I understand why he didn't want to take a picture.

At least his money isn't mediocre. Took her long enough to wise up.
