INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Lenny Kravitz has been enjoying Super Bowl weekend, but his reasons are more personal than sports-related.
The rocker had a chance to reconnect with some NFL legends whom he's had connections with in the past.
Kravitz said Sunday that Joe Namath used to live across the street from him when he was growing up and the Hall of Famer used to play catch with him. He got a chance to meet up with Namath recently and reconnected with him on Saturday night at the NFL Honors.
The musician also chatted with another great, Jim Brown, who was a friend of his mother's, actress Roxie Roker.
Kravitz was one of the performers at the NFL official tailgate party at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday.
Band starstruck during Super Bowl weekend
The Super Bowl has attracted so many stars to the city that even The Fray admits to being a little starstruck.
The band performed at the NFL's official tailgate party at Lucas Oil Stadium ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
In the days before the big game, lead singer Isaac Slade said they were in a restaurant with "Glee's" Matthew Morrison, then another VIP walked by — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Later, they saw Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Slade said, "It's been surreal, it's kind of an 'SNL (Saturday Night Live)' skit."
The band also enjoyed plenty of star-studded events leading up to the big game — for guitarist Joe King, maybe a little too much.
King said: "I feel like I'm a sponge and I've had enough."
