There may be no one cooler than Carlos Aguilera. But it’s not because of some flashy car or superbabe girlfriend. That’s predictable. That’s old hat, folks. No, Aguilera has set a new standard of cool in my book, for a reason that I have a hard time wrapping my head around. This dude had to remain conscious during a surgery where they removed a brain tumor, so he played his saxophone to keep calm. It’s the most surprising saxophone performance since Bill Clinton shredded golden notes in shades on The Arsenio Hall Show and Aguilera wasn’t trying to win anything. He was just doing it to stay awake while someone put knives in his head. Good luck ever doing anything half as fresh as this, everyone else ever.
