Many people know Lenny Kaye as a guitarist and composer with the Patti Smith Group. I have seen him play with Patti Smith four or five times in the past few years. I love his style and his gentle enthusiasm.
Lenny Kaye is lesser known but greatly respected as a music journalist. He has a powerful writing command that makes him one of America’s leading music analysts and interpreters.
Lenny began by writing reviews for Jazz and Pop magazine. He later branched out to foundation rock magazines like Fusion, Crawdaddy and Rolling Stone. He next became the music editor for Cavalier, a gentlemen’s magazine.where he authored a monthly column until 1975.
