Default Trivial Pursuit Question

Ok, this has been bugging the hell out of me for a few days now. I was playing Trivial Pursuit with my family on Thanksgiving, and this question just killed me. Whenever we play, I go for the entertainment category often just in case a Beatles question comes up. And this time, I actually got 2 of them. The first one asked something like...

Who said of John Lennon, "The only thing he taught me was how NOT to be a father."

Now, of course I said Julian. I mean, it was a perfect quote. Who else would say something like that? And so the answer was....Sean!!?! Now I just know that's totally wrong, and everybody almost let me have the question because they know I could never miss a Beatles question.

So of course I instantly thought I should ask the question on the forum, and maybe somebody could go out and find the actual quote somewhere. So....who's got it?

This is what I found:

Julian Lennon on his dad - and his first disc in seven years

Sometimes, across a crowded restaurant, people spot Julian Lennon eating dinner. They don't approach him. Instead, they go to the jukebox. "They put Beatles music on," he says, "to see if I'll flinch."

To most people, Lennon will always be "the son of." That's why, on his first album in seven years,


Photograph Smile, he has made a liberating statement. Yes, he looks like John Lennon, and on one track does a startling imitation of him. But Julian, 36, has dedicated his album to the man who really raised and nurtured him, his late stepfather, Roberto Bassanini. "He was the one who took me to school every day. He was the guy."

As for John Lennon: "The only thing he taught me was how not to be a father."

When Julian first hit the music charts, in 1984, he was 21 and his father had been dead just four years. "Julian was still grappling with it," says Gary Graff, a rock music author. "He was expressing remorse, not anger."

But now, anger is helping Julian come to terms with his lineage. His father and mother, Cynthia, split when he was 5. He saw his dad another dozen times or so. "He walked out the bloody door and was never around. ... I'd admire him on TV - listen to his words and opinions. But for someone who was praised for peace and love and wasn't able to keep that at home, that's hypocrisy."

I think you should sue the makers of Trivial Pursuit due to the inaccuracy of their information

In all the times I've played Trival Pursuit, I have come across several questions that are mis informed. Does anyone know of a person to contact and give them the proper information?

Doesn't Trivial Pursuit also claim that Pete Best is dead?

I hate that kind of MAJOR mistake...now there will be people out there that really believe that kind of rubbish. That is why I hate it when I read any kind of mistake in a Beatle book or anywhere.
