When I heard Lenny Kravitz was playing at the Santa Monica Civic Center, I had three questions: Where is the Civic Center? Why didn’t I know about this concert? In this sad time for the music industry as well as the planet, what has Lenny been up to lately? Fortunately for me, all of my questions were answered.

The Civic Center was the same building that I passed everyday going to work, and apparently I didn’t know about this concert because it sold out so quickly. Moreover, Kravitz has been planning and recording his latest album, It Is Time for a Love Revolution. The crowd of over three thousand and I couldn’t agree more.

While Kravitz complained of being a little sick and tired with a touch of the flu, he was obviously more sick and tired of the sad state of today’s music as he lifted the vibe off the roof and with just a touch of his guitar, voice and piano.

This is what rock ’n’ roll is all about. The show was definitely on fire, with the crowd even hot for slow jams like “Believe” and his new, beautiful “I’ll be Waiting,” only Kravitz and his piano on stage.

After a full hour and a half, Mr. Kravitz closed with two hits that sounded even better live than they do on the radio: “Fly Away” and “Are You Gonna Go My Way.”

It is definitely time for a Love Revolution, and Lenny Kravitz is leading the way.
