Lenny Kravitz - Kravitz Still Upset Over Robbery Link
Lenny Kravitz is still sore about a decade-old case of mistaken identity that prompted him to write 2001 hit Bank Robber Man.
The rocker was apprehended by cops in Miami, Florida, because he matched the description of a man who had robbed a bank - and he admits the years have only made him feel more of a police victim.
He tells Details magazine, "Were those cops racist? I don't know. But they were certainly guilty of something else. Black kid, white T-shirt just robbed a bank. Here I am, four blocks from the bank, black guy, white shirt, and they stop me at gunpoint.
"It was ridiculous as it went on and on - half an hour of being detained. Could Lenny Kravitz rob a bank? Maybe. But I don't need to."
