Why Kenny G's Hair Is the Most Dependably Great Thing In Music

One of the best things about life is spontaneity. Adventures and experiences, big or small, that happen on a whim can make life pretty fucking fun. Especially because, for most of us, the rest of that time is bogged down by realities like jobs, school, and bills; when we can roll with some spur-of-the-moment idea, all the better.

Since we do have all that real-life bullshit to tend to, we count on life's consistencies to give us a little balance. Even if it's something we don't think about on the regular, just knowing it's out there -- hanging out and staying the same -- helps keep us slightly grounded. It's important to have some things we can count on.

One of those things is Kenny G's hair.
