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.”
