I've seen him a few times, he's very contrived and does the whole rock star thing. You can spend your money on something better...just my opinion.

That's exactly right. I saw him live some years back. I was never a big fan, but I've been turned off to him ever since. The clincher was actually right at the beginning of the show, when he bumped his guitar into the mic stand by accident and no sound came out. He did play it later. It just seemed that much more glaring that he's a rhythm guitarist and a guy without an original idea in his head when in the mid-90s some people compared him to Hendrix.

Comparing him to Hendrix was a joke. Lenny is lame.

He started out with direction but it didnt take long for the "Rock Star' thing to take over his soul!

everything after " Are You Gonna Go My Way" album is pretty lame.

A few good tunes here and there but no real stand out albums.

Mama Said is pretty good though.

I would check him out if the tickets were free and I was single. I would wager that there's plenty more females at his show than Gov't Mule.

Been to about 15 Mule shows and I have yet to see a single female in attendance. Just kidding -- Mule shows tend to be heavily male-centric though.

The Ratio has gotten a little better over the past few years.
In the early Mule years you could count the girls on one hand.

Andy Hess seems to be popluar with a lot of ladies who frequent this site. Plus the music is pretty damm good also ! It always was I just think the woody years had a darker edge.

I like his greatest hits cd a lot..... but I wouldn't pay to see him live..... I really dislike the "rock star" image he puts forth....

... that said... I like the song he did with Slash, even though it's fairly simple... it's a fun song... also, Rock and Roll is Dead.... let love rule..... can't get you off my mind......

He's no great musician, but he has a few fun songs....

You mean the one that looked like Al Sharpton's on a bad day? Terrible.

I saw him and the Black Crowes at Jones Beach a few years ago, and was very disappointed that the Crowes opened for him. He was quite annoying.

Have any of you seen the Band of Gypsys' dvd? Why they chose him to give his two cents on Jimi & the BOG is anyone's guess.

Awful.

Wow, everyone actually seems to be in agreement with this one...Not a fan of Lenny either - seems way to concerned with looking good than playing good. The only time I saw him was at The Beacon opening for Dylan way before anyone even knew him. It must of been 15 years ago or so.

well stated illness. i saw him at the HORDE festival in 1994 (or 1995) and he was a good warmup for Blues Traveler and Neil Young. Of course he did his 45 minute set and left. since the more recent stuff is not that great, i would imagine you would have to sit through the crap for the good tunes. strictly commercial.

I saw the crowes/kravitz tour at nissan.

It was great. both bands rocked the house.

Cindy Blackman kicked ass, but I don't think she is still with Lenny.

I like his earlier stuff, but like is said here.. He's gone for the "rock star" schtick.

I LOVED his first album when it came out and it gradually went downhill from there. By the time the 3rd album came out, that was it for me... He became more about the image. I'd seen him live a few times. Save your money.

WOW! I just realized a lot of people have already said the same thing. Well, here's one more!

That first album was great, the second was almost as good, then h eput out a couple of good singles. I don't care for that Gap commercial one little bit, but Sarah Jessica Parker has alot to do with that--she's the Lenny Kravitz of actresses to me.

Lenny does serve a place in music. There aren't alot of of commercial artists today that look back to classic rock, and Lenny does. If he can get kids to look backwards for something better, let him strut his stuff.

The guy's a copycat... I can't really give him extra credit just because he chooses to copy good stuff.

Instead of going out and seeing some live music ?? Lenny's band are some damn
fine musicians ...... I have always enjoyed his shows for what they were .....

Rock Star trip ?? that kills me .... Kinda like a Musical Elitist Trip ...."If it ain't Warren,
it ain't shiit ...."
