All That Is Wrong With America
Rob Keil | San Francisco | 12/14/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I was at Subway having a sandwich for lunch today and heard something scary on the radio. Yes, Kenny G has licensed the classic 1969 Louis Armstrong recording of "What a Wonderful World" and added his syrupy meaningless soprano meanderings to it, thereby creating a "new" track that we will forever be hearing, wherein we get to hear him drizzle the immortal Satchmo with his unique strain of aural garbage.

I believe this event represents the end of western civilization as we know it. I will now grab my orange robe and move to a Tibetan mountaintop where I will contemplate all that is wrong with America."
What A Sad, Pathetic World This Is

"Kenny G has ruined one of the greatest songs of all time. If he were alive today, Louis Armstrong would never have allowed this travesty to happen. Why couldn't Kenny ruin Streisand songs instead? I'm so sorry, Louis."
How does Kenny G sleep at night?

"When I heard this, my stomach turned. What a sacriledge to good music. The key difference between Kenny G and talented musicians is that the only time KG is even tolerable is at lousy work parties, brief elevator trips, and when undergoing dental surgery. This is nothing short of blasphemy: a no-talent clown defiling a work from one of America's legends. It's OK to be a cheesy musician, but not if you're going to insult a real musician who isn't alive to defend himself from such filth. I hope that an assortment of cheesy 80s hair bands reunite and release a complete album with Breathless playing in the background."
