cover blurb - I see my story as a suite of songs that have a magical connection
Lenny Kravitz (with David Ritz) is one cool dude as demonstrated in his memoir Let Love Rule.
This book covers his childhood from the Upper East Side to Brooklyn, from Los Angeles Baldwin Hills to Beverly Hills. He considers himself a child of opposites - Black and white, Jewish and Christian, Jackson Five and Led Zeppelin. I accepted my Gemini soul. I owned it. Yins and yang mingled in various parts of my heart and mind, giving me balance and fueling my curiosity and comfort. (cover blurb)
I enjoyed this rather light read. He dabbled in all manner of arts and was obviously bright and creative, constantly searching for the right sound, the right timing. He talks of struggle, but, to me, he was able to gloss through his youth without much of a scratch. Very spiritual, very zen and Lenny Kravitz (through his parents) had a lot of connections.
It's fun to read his journey to his muse, Lisa Bonet and to his signature song Let Love Rule. I assume there will be another memoir at some point to cover his life past this high point. Meanwhile, put on his greatest hits and cruise with Lenny - groovy.
