by Ronald A. Rowe September 15th, 2014
September’s Featured Artist of the Month here at Tunes News is funk-rock legend Lenny Kravitz.  For better or worse, Kravitz has been in the spotlight to one degree or another for most of his 50 years, long before he earned a spot in the sun with his first album in 1989.

Lenny Kravitz’s personal life has played out very publicly from an early age.  With a famous (-ish) actress for a mother and a big-time music promoter for a father, Kravtiz was primed for a future in the public eye from the time his family moved to Hollywood when he
