The ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’ hitmaker admitted his outlook on life has changed as he’s got older and these days he’d rather be on his own to “create” or with a small group of friends than enjoying a wild bash.

Asked if he prefers solitude and privacy or partying, he said: “I like both, but I lean more towards solitude.

“You know, when I was in my 20 I would have said the opposite. I need my quiet time to just sit and listen to myself so I can create.

“I tend to like to be around my close friends and family so we can just be ourselves and be natural, sit around and talk and laugh. That’s a party to me.”

However, the 56-year-old rocker admitted he does still stage “legendary” parties in the boiler room of his home in Paris.

He told the Sunday Times' Home magazine: "I tend to party at home. I have a room in Paris in the basement. It’s actually the boiler room.

“That has become quite a legendary party place. I’ve moved my records and stereo, lights and tables there. That’s where I like to entertain people. Many people that you know of have been there. All in the boiler room.”

Lenny has spent most of this year in the Bahamas and has loved isolating alone in a trailer there.

He said: “I am still in the Bahamas — thankfully — which is not a bad place to isolate in. There’s no complaining going on here.

“I have been here for seven and a half months, living in my Airstream trailer, and it’s been wonderful. There’s not a day when I want to leave.

“The name of this island, Eleuthera, means freedom in Greek. Living simply and in nature is a blessing. I wish everybody could have the opportunity to experience this.”
