Hat tip to Mr. Kravitz (the newest Tumblr-using rock star) on this one.
I have a very detailed memory of falling in love with this song while watching him perform it “live” on VH1 Storytellers six years ago. It’s lead guitar riff and accompanying bassline drew me in from the get-go, but I remember becoming transfixed once he segued into the solo mid-way through the song.
For the sake of space, I’ll sum it up with this: the man is incredibly talented. In a time where the music industry is cluttered with cardboard cutout rockstars, there are few doing the vintage, funky rock and roll sound so well. And I’m pretty sure I could listen to Lenny Kravitz and his Gibson “Flying V” all day long.
