For those of you excited by the fact that Dave looks like the guy featured in the photo let me disappoint you by telling you that it’s actually actor Paul Shane as Ted Bovis from the 80’s British sitcom Hi-Di-Hi.

Completely with Pricey on this one but then what sort of right thinking person wouldn’t be? There are plenty of artists I don’t “get” but I do at least understand why they exist and can see why they have a large following. But Kravitz…Kravitz is so utterly bland, so completely detached and unemotional I just can’t fathom what he does to connect with so many people. From memory the first time I was made aware of Lenny was Let Love Rule, video was all hippy dippy lens flares (in both senses) and then he was shagging Lisa Bonnet and then he had a pub rock anthem with Are you gonna go my way? before actually going away, at least for me, just as the witty title of this piece begs him to do.

So Wikipedia what can you tell me of Lenny these days? Oh God it’s depressing, you might want to stop reading from this point on but these are the “highlights” worth noting
