Words about music (378): Lenny Kaye

I got into rock music as a fan. When I was a kid I had the luxury of growing up with rock music. One of the first songs I ever heard on the radio when I was a wee little kid was "Tutti Frutti" by Little Richard and then I kind of grew up with it. And it always gave me a sense of identity, you know, I wasn't like a athletic type, I wasn't particularly cool, but I found in rock 'n' roll a kind of a mutant way of existence and I just kept at it. I never thought I would be a professional musician. I started out as a fan and I guess I still am one.
