The Beatles icon John Lennon‘s son Julian Lennon confirmed his father having an affair in a newly unearthed 1998 The Telegraph interview. John Lennon’s son just revealed if he hates “Hey Jude.”

“I have to say that, from my point of view, I felt he was a hypocrite. Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son.”

“How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces — no communication, adultery, divorce?” Julian asked. “You can’t do it, not if you’re being true and honest with yourself.”

He was then asked if he thinks it’s okay to criticize John for being a poor father. He answered, “Yeah, I do. If you bring a child into this world, whether it’s planned or an accident, you’d better make sure you can care for it.”

GJamjars recently posted on Reddit about the day John Lennon died, “I was 11 years old too. I remember finding John’s Imagine album hidden away in my Grandma’s drawer. She told me it was my Mum’s and John was her favourite singer. My Mum had died when I was only 4 so this became a big thing for me, to find out who this guy with the granny glasses was. Over the next year or so I became a huge fan of John, and the Beatles, but especially John. When I heard he was coming back to make a new album I was beside myself with excitement. My Gran bought it for me for Christmas and I contented myself by taping the songs that were played on the radio.

The morning of December 9th 1980 was weird. I got up for school and my Gran told me the radio, which was always playing in the morning, was broken. She was also very quiet and hustled me off to school. Then after getting kicked out of morning assembly with my friend so we could listen to his transistor radio, I saw him start crying as he held it up to his ear. All he said was ”They killed John Lennon!”

I can’t remember much else about that day except feeling angry, sad and frightened. I never played Double Fantasy that Christmas and for years after it became too hard for me to hear his music. Luckily, it was too hard to avoid, and little by little I started to fall back in love with what he had left for us. Even now, some songs set me off. Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy), Across the Universe, Mother and the chimes at the beginning of (Just Like) Starting Over.

I still haven’t gotten over that day 39 years ago but his music has helped me in ways I cannot even begin to describe.” John Lennon walking the streets before his shooting with a woman was revealed in a new photo.
