Miles Davis Hearts Kenny G (on which planet, again?)

Yet another reason to abhor Kenny G ...

According to Kenny G, Miles Davis told the G Scam that he (Kenny) was "great."

That's his story, and he's sticking to it.

Of course, Miles isn't around to defend himself from such nonsense, BECAUSE HE'S DEAD! How convenient.

As the tall tale goes (told to Sean Daly, whose smart music criticism appears in the St. Petersburg Times): When Kenny G played some opening dates for Miles in the '80s, the Prince of Darkness came backstage and praised G.

Could this be true?

My take: Kenny G is out of his mind, deluded by his vast commercial success. Or, if Miles actually did make a statement to that effect, he was just pulling Kenny's leg, maybe trying to get a rise out of the guy. And instead of "getting" what Miles was saying, Kenny actually believed him.

How sad. And to make it even worse, G is going around repeating his delusion to music critics.

Kenny Kenny Kenny. Can't leave bad enough alone.
