The Tucson Weekly interviewed famous soprano saxophonist and noted mousse enthusiast Kenny “G” Gorelick in its August 7-13 issue for their “Nine Questions” feature. The interview tied in to Mr. G’s upcoming appearance at the Desert Diamond Casino (”Where Music Goes to Die from Autoerotic Asphyxiation”). It’s worth a read just for the sheer douchebaggery that is displayed so prominently by the G-Man. You can read the full interview here, but just check out his answers to some of the questions:
What CDs are in your changer right now?
None. The CDs I listen to are things that I’m working on. I don’t listen to old CDs. That’s not part of my thing.
How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?
Between 400 and 500.
What? Let me get this straight: Kenny G only listens to CDs of music that he is working on. Listening to any other CDs is just “not part of (his) thing.” The G-Man can only function by constantly listening to his own smooth jazz records. He’s just too good to listen to any other kind of music? But he owns between 400 and 500 CDs, presumably just to make his CDs look good next to them on the shelf. Hey, I guess that’s just how Ken-Bo works, baby … It goes on:
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
Probably one I wrote, “Songbird.” That song changed my life.
Jesus Kenny, what’s wrong with “Amazing Grace”? Even when he lies in his coffin, Kenny G wants to hear his own shitty music. We can be assured that everyone in attendance will die a little along with him.
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
I like listening to classical music. That’s pretty predictable, though.
“Pretty predictable”? Wait a minute G-Man–I thought you only listened to your own music. What gives? I think that everything you’ve told us in thus far in this casual series of nine questions to promote your upcoming show at Tucson’s Desert Diamond Casino has been a lie! Son of a biscuit!!
