Rocker Lenny Kravitz gave up alcohol at a very early age after accidentally getting drunk when he was seven.
The Jewish singer/songwriter reveals he guzzled a bottle of wine with a cousin at a holiday party and became so ill afterwards he spent the week in bed.
The Let Love Rule hit-maker explains, "I went to a Hanukkah party... and this cousin of mine got a bottle of Manischevitz (wine) and I didn't know what it was but it looked like grape juice and I was a big fan of grape juice, so we went behind this stairwell in the temple and there's about three of us... and we're drinking it and passing it around."
"The problem was before I drank the bottle of Manischevitz I'd eaten about a plate load of pig in a blankets (sic) - kosher of course... and so I'm driving home with my parents... and I'm thinking, 'I'm not feeling too good,' and I'm laying on the back seat (and) things are starting to spin."
"I get to my grandparents' house... and The Waltons Christmas Special was on the television and I got up to turn the volume up and I threw up all over the television. I threw up on John-Boy."
"I was in bed for about a week after that... I was really sick, I got really ill."
