Lenny Kravitz recalled the “fluid” experience of reuniting with former schoolmate Slash for his 1991 album Mama Said, and explained why he let the Guns N’ Roses guitarist record only one take of his solo for “Fields of Joy.”
The pair reconnected at an awards ceremony and decided to work together while Kravitz was in the process of making his second LP, and the first collaboration was the addition of a lead guitar track to the already-written song.
“Slash and I went to high school together, but we hadn’t seen each other since,” Kravitz told Music Radar in a recent interview. “When my first album was out, I went to the American Music Awards and Guns N’ Roses were getting awards and they were sitting in front of me. He and I just kept looking at each other.
