Lenny ha respondido a sus fans.
Hace unas horas, los fans de Lenny Kravitz hemos tenido la oportunidad de hacerle llegar al rockero de Nueva York nuestra preguntas a través de facebook.
Algunas de ellas las ha contestado antes de hacer la prueba de sonido para el concierto que iba a dar en Los Angeles.
Las preguntas han versado sobre temas muy diversos, desde su nuevo trabajo «Black and White America» y otras cuestiones musicales, hasta sus gustos sobre comics o su fe, e incluso mensajes de un antiguo compañero suyo de clase.
Reproducimos la entrevista en el idioma original puesto que es de fácil comprensión.
Si alguien quiere la traducció, gustosos la publicaremos en otro artículo. No teneis más que pedirla.
