Lenny Kravitz: I Want to Work With Jack White

October 22, 2009 3:26 PM ET

Lenny Kravitz doesn't spend much time listening to current music — he prefers old favorites and new obsessions such as Nina Simone. But there's at least one exception: "Jack White is very good," Kravitz says. "I mean, I love the White Stripes records. Love them. I think he's very interesting; he's someone I'd actually like to play with. One thing I haven't done that I want to do is, for instance, go be the drummer in a band. I'd like to work with some other great musicians and I'll either play bass or play drums or whatever, and collaborate with some people like that."

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
