You have to give him credit, he’s not going to make any money nor sell cds (at least not officially his cds). I would have loved to been at the reception given by the Ambassador and his wife. Lots of nervous laughter. On the other hand its probably the biggest guest the Azer. ammbassador has seen.

I’m glad he went. It’s a huge deal for those kids who got to see him. From the pics, it looks like a lot had cellphones and cameraphones. Now, I don’t know Azerbaijan, but those seem kind of like the things only available to kids living in a Gangsta’s Paradise (I can’t resist!)
