Did you ever meet anyone in the Lenny's band?

Thu, Oct 25, 2012 at 1:59 PM

I didn't have the opportunity yet . I'm a huge fan of Harold Todd, George Lacks and Craig Ross . Franklin Vanderbilt is very nice too! (he always answers my emails, comments...). Anyway, I think that Lenny has an increible band, and all of them are very talented
Tell me your experiences!

Kisses, Melina

    I think I could even die if I lived the same as you! How is possible that you're still alive??? I read your story and I find it fantastic! Harold, Franklin, Gail, Gabrial, Ludovic ... OMG! You're a blessed! God was thinking of you that day!

    Mary,

    Sometimes when we are living the moment we don't really "think" we just "experience". What a wonderful experience!

    I can believe that you stood in AWE and did nothing! It's like a dream. You have an amazing story and I"m sure just thinking about the moment brings back all the excitiment that you were feeling! Thank you for sharing it - I love a good "LENNY" story!


    @ Norma

    It was like a dream an before I knew it, it was over an the opportunity had passed me by, well not gonna happen when they return I hope, oh god I hope!!!:)

    Yes The crew is (more or less) great. My favourite is still Franklin, he is good educated, clear and open minded, friendly, alert and respectful.....and right, he answers greetings, mails and so on as far as he is allowed to do that....... right Franklin?!

    But my deepest respect and esteem goes to Harold Todd. He is what I call "The Perfect Man" !!! in every sense.
    Lenny would do good, if he would listen to them instead of.........

    I may have seen Lenny Kravitz from a distance, in New York City, many years ago.

    Yes, I was blessed to meet them. I would love to see Mathieu again to tell him thanks for taking me to see LK and to compliment his work. Would love to meet Harold too, and to talk with Franklin, he has the biggest smile ever. I actually would love to meet anyone in his band. Would love to someday I hope.

    Good for you for meeting and greeting with Gabriel, he has a rare and spectacular hair! Craig Ross is just amazing. And I love his hair! People with curly hair are the most beautiful in the world! (including me haha). And Franklin as I said, always answer me the emails, and also puts "likes" in my photos, is a very kind person! My dream is to know personally (apart of Lenny) Mathieu Bitton, Harold Todd and Ludovic Louis. Mathieu because is a great photographer, and I would like to say this to him in person. Harold Todd, because I really admire him, I get crazy with his solos (I really think that is has magic in his lungs). And Ludovic Louis, because is nice, cute and talented too

    When I went to Vegas in Feb. for LK's concert saw Gabriel McNair in the MGM Casino (he took a pic with me), Then next night, the night of the concert, when I went backstage to see Lenny on the way out met Craig Ross. He was so nice he asked my name and signed his autograph "to Angela". So sweet and he has beautiful blue eyes, which I never knew under all that hair. Then I saw Gabriel again on way out, he signed my poster. In July in Rome I met Franklin at gate after the concert and got a quick hug and an Italian FB friend sent me a pic of the hug but it only shows Franklin's huge smile and the back of my head. :) Then Franklin sent me a message that he saw me front row at Vigevano concert! Seems Lenny surrounds himself with good people.

    Mary, it all happens to fast sometimes too fast to think. When I saw Franklin for first time in the MGM casino in Vegas (he walked right passed me) I poked my friend and said, "hey, I think that's Lenny's drummer." I said nothing as I thought no, could be him. It was! I was (and still am kicking myself for not saying hi). Later I see Mathieu, talk with him, but don't ask for a pic (was kicking myself afterwards) so then later same night see Gabriel and THIS TIME i ask to get a pic with him. It is hard to think on the spot. I pray for a next time for both you and me!
