I don't understand any of this but i really dislike his sound and music.
Hate the sound of soprano sax in general though. But he plays it extra disgusting imo. sorry to the fans, listen to what you like. Just my opinion.
Own what you love people. I certainly do.

What is a "flex" and what is "trying to style on"?

Not that I have any problem with him doing this, but what’s the context of it?

Love this lol. Kenny G gets way too much hate. I'm also loving the corded phone he's rocking in that flex cave.

What’s the single most important thing the falcons have to do to beat the patriots in the super bowl?

I barely know any of Kenny G‘s music. I only know that Pat Metheny talked very negatively about him some years ago. I found that quite funny because I’ve never heard Metheny talking like that before.

That is the most Kenny G tweet possible.

Ultimately harmless, but still annoying for no real reason I can name, much like his music.

popular to hate on KennyG for a minute, but he's skilled and can play all kinds. People just mad because he played what the terrible gatekeeper industry asked for.

Only one man in history can style on Kenny G tho. And it's not even close. Goodnight Kenny G, sax-baby.

Kenny G reminds me of Guy Fieri and Richard Simmons in that they are in that unfortunate category of famous people that are cool to hate even though they're reasonably nice and talented individuals.

Not a jazz gatekeeper. Just believe Kenny G is supremely outclassed by Hardcastle and makes safe relatively simply compositions within the genre.

I'd put him in the class of Steve Vai. Not my cup of team musically at all, but impossible to ignore his technical ability. Ironically I think he helped make sax uncool. Once people saw him doing it, with the Yanni-factor kicking in hard, it colored how other sax moments felt and sounded. There was a point in the 80s where sax solos weren't just acceptable, they were essential. If you released a New Romantic or even New Wave ballad WITHOUT a sax (or similar) solo, then you were banned from the Musicians Guild for life. Hell, the Sisters of Mercy used sax solos.

I’m not sure I would include the inventor of donkey sauce in the same company you are proposing he belongs to.
