Kenny G Responds To Prince’s Comment, Internet Is Not DeadJuly 11th, 2010 - 7:13 pm ICT by GD

New York, July 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) He might call himself Prince but that doesn’t make the jazz saxophonist bow before him. Instead, Kenny G has responded to Prince’s comments saying that Internet is not dead. Reportedly, Prince made a comment earlier where he called the Internet to be dead. Now obviously this is an uninspiring affair which have triggered criticisms at Prince from many artists including Kenny G.
The saxophonist told the media that if Prince’s comment holds any truth then he must be dead too as because he uses the Internet almost all the time. The 54 year old saxophonist also jokingly said that if he’s dead like the Internet then he must be having some sort of sixth sense. Or he must have the ability to see dead people walking around. Kenny G also said that he is well aware of the fact that music lovers nowadays download most of their soundtracks from Internet. Kenny G said that his fans may not be Internet savvy like Rihanna’s fans but he thinks that Internet is a great medium to promote his music to one and all.
On the other hand we have Prince who refrains from using digital platforms to promote his music. Unlike him, Kenny G says that he shall do all it takes to “stay connected” owing to the fact that he had just released his new album “Heart And Soul” which is a R&B flavored album. He also said that he totally supports downloading music over Internet as there are still certain places where there is no physical existence of an universal music store. Moreover, if one orders his choice of disc over the Internet it takes ages for the music company to ship over the stuff to the person. By that time, he might just loose his appetite for listening to it and that might be a sad day for music.
