Let Love Rule chronicles the first 25 years of Lenny Kravitz‘s life, up through the 1989 release of his debut album Let Love Rule.
Lenny is one of the more fascinating personalities in the rock pantheon: from his music to his style to his romantic interests, there’s a lot to cover. And from the looks of it, Let Love Rule does an admirable job of mining those early years that laid the foundation for the Lenny Kravitz we know today.
Rolling Stone recently released an excerpt from the memoir, and it’s tasty indeed. Lenny talks about the first Led Zeppelin song he ever heard–“Black Dog”–and the first time he ever smoked weed; they were both on the same day. Talk about having your mind blown!
