Behind Door #2

Writing this Lenny Kravitz article was like winning a prize on a game show, specifically Let’s Make a Deal. One day in the spring of 2004, I dropped by the Rolling Stone offices, checking in with various friends and colleagues. One editor, Joe, summoned me into his office and asked if I was free to travel for an assignment the following day. Only when I gave him my answer would he tell me the subject and the destination: Lenny Kravitz, in Miami. And so, the following day, I was on a plane to Florida.

Two other notes on the piece (which I’ve just added to the archives): (1) I don’t think I’ve ever interviewed anybody who dropped famous names as effortlessly as Kravitz. (2) I had totally forgotten that he dated Nicole Kidman.
