“Paul and I used to hang out quite a bit – more than Dad and I did … There seem to be far more pictures of me and Paul playing at that age than me and Dad. I’ve never really wanted to know the truth of how Dad was and how he was with me. There was some very negative stuff – like when he said that I’d come out of a whisky bottle on a Saturday night. That’s tough to deal with. You think, where’s the love in that? It surprises me whenever I hear the song. It’s strange to think someone has written a song about you. It still touches me.”
Depoimento do Julian Lennon sobre a música “Hey Jude”, conforme consta na bela reportagem de Dave Simpson sobre pessoas reais que inspiraram canções, no The Guardian.
