Julian Lennon

As a child, John Lennon's son Julian Lennon – born April 8, 1963, in Liverpool, England - inspired the Beatles' classics “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds” and “Hey Jude,” although he had little contact with his father for several years after his parents divorced in 1968. When John and Julian began spending time together in the mid 1970s, John bought him his first guitar and Julian Lennon made his recording debut playing drums on the track “Ya-Ya” on John's 1974 album Walls & Bridges. He launched his own career in earnest in 1984 with the album Valotte, which produced two hits with the title track and “Too Late For Goodbyes.” His sophomore album, The Secret Value Of Daydreaming (1986), was less successful but he had another Top 10 single in the UK with “Saltwater” from the 1991 album Help Yourself. He recorded a cover of the Rolling Stones' “Ruby Tuesday” for the TV series The Wonder Years, after which he retired from the music business for several years as he pursued other interests. Julian returned in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album Photograph Smile, and, in 2002, he covered The Beatles' “When I'm 64” for a TV commercial. He then concentrated on photography before moving into documentary filmmaking. Julian Lennon breifly returned to the music scene in 2011 with the album Everything Changes before moving back to filmmaking. In September 2022, he released the album Jude, which included the singles “Freedom,” “Every Little Moment,” “Save Me,” and “Breathe.”
