The official Instagram account for late The Beatles icon John Lennon posted the following photo. The photo is actually a delightful throwback of Lennon circa 1968 with his son Julian next to two stuffed animals, a panda, and koala around the time he was divorcing Cynthia Powell. Paul McCartney wrote “Hey Jude” about Julian after John broke up with his mother to be with Yoko Ono. While the plush animals could look weird to some eyes now this is certainly one adorable photo. John Lennon looks strung out on heroin in this sad photo.
Lennon’s account had this to say about the picture: “John with his then four-year-old son Julian plus panda and koala – at home at Kenwood, St. George’s Hill, Weybridge, Surrey, UK on 29 June 1967.”⠀
In other news regarding John Lennon and The Beatles, fans of the ‘Fab Four’ discussed what they believed to be the band’s most underrated songs of all time 1987 in a recent topic within the subreddit for The Beatles. John Lennon lost massive money before his death.
Tjc815 proclaimed:“Insofar as any Beatles song can be underrated, I would go for the three-song stretch on side four of The White Album (‘Honey Pie’, ‘Savoy Truffle’, ‘Cry Baby Cry’) as impressive works by each of the three main writers that possibly get overshadowed just by being on the back end of such a massive album with plenty of other iconic songs. I really enjoy all three songs very much.”
John Lennon called this member of The Beatles a ‘Loser’. HizZzyDaDon penned: “Basically most of the songs on their earlier albums. Rubber Soul onwards get the praise it deserves but they had great albums before then as well. AHDN may still be my favorite. The second side, in particular, is underrated I find.”
