br /> The multi-instrumentalist suggested to the Birmingham Post this week that he received little instrumental instruction when growing up and mostly learned on his own.

"I was pretty much self-taught when it came to music," he remarked. "My father gave me an acoustic guitar when I was nine and I'd practice on my parents' piano as well."

He explained that music first fired his imagination at the age of six when he saw The Jackson Five in concert.

The event made him want to become a drummer, but without a drum kit in his apartment he made do with playing his mother's pots and pans.

Kravitz released a special deluxe version of his 1989 debut album Let Love Rule at the end of last month. He is currently on a tour of Europe, with ex-Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell supporting him on all 12 of his gigs in France.
