Who Is Lenny Kravitz?

What do you mean, you don't know who Lenny Kravitz is?! Lenny Kravitz is a sensitive rocker who's spent most of his career singing the message of love. I'm not talkin' love songs - I'm talkin' about the world being a better place if we would all just let love rule. Lenny Kravitz's taken a lot of slaggin' from critics over the years being called a wannabe Led Zepplin, Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix but he hasn't let it stand in his way.

Lenny Kravitz's Roots

The retro rocker we know as Lenny Kravitz was born in 1964 in Brooklyn, NY to parents Sy Kravitz and the late actress Roxie Roker. Roxie was best known for her character on the hit '70s TV show The Jeffersons. Lenny Kravitz didn't realize his parents were different races - his father White and his mother Black, until kids started talking about it at school. Lenny Kravitz had a thing for music right away and by age 10 had dragged his parents to see Sarah Vaughan, James Brown and the Jackson 5. In 1974 the family moved to LA and Lenny Kravitz snagged a spot in the California Boys Choir. Lenny Kravitz also started teaching himself to play the guitar, piano, bass and the drums. A few years later Lenny Kravitz was taking the music program at Beverly Hills High School and gave himself the name Romeo Blue.
