Julian Lennon- the son of Beatle John and his first wife Cynthia turns 50 today. Julian directly influenced three Beatles songs. Paul McCartney wrote “Hey Jude” after visiting Julian after John and Cynthia had broken up. Paul wrote “Hey Jude” to console Julian over his parents breaking up. “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” was inspired by Julian’s watercolouring of his nursery school friend Lucy O’Donnell surrounded by stars. “Good Night” was a lullaby John wrote to Julian.
I love The Beatles, I have been told that I am obsessed with The Beatles. I have always thought the biggest mistake in John Lennon’s life was how he treated Julian. Julian was closer to Paul than he was with his own father. It’s a shame that the evil Yoko Ono had such an influence over him.
Julian Lennon has had a musical career on his own. He’s released a half dozen albums over the years and had four Top 40 hits in the United States.
