^ I'm so sorry Peregrine! I will see if I can snap each question since I have NO IDEA how to make it bigger without screwing with the page. Give me a few minutes!

Default Hello interview with Julian Lennon

Since I'm used to transcribing... Not quite sure of the date of the interview though. If anyone knows please supply! Sorry for any typos.

Hello! Last word

Half hour with Julian Lennon

As a musician, photographer, documentary maker and 'closet chef', John's boy reveals why he's more than just the son of a Beatle

With plenty of creative strings to his bow, Julian Lennon is keen to impress that, despite being the only child of Beatle John Lennon and his first wife Cynthia, he's "more than a one-dimensional, so-of-John character". The 48-year-old musicians had a difficult relationship with his father, which included periods of enstrangement before John was killed when Julian was 17. But as he points out: "There's a lot more to my life and work than just Dad."

Having just released Everything Changes, his first album in 13 years, Julian is a happy man. "It's probably been the best response I've ever had," he says. "I think people have seen a different side to me."

Your new album isn't something you've rushed, is it?

No, I started tinkling the ivories again about eight years ago - sometimes I don't play or sing for years. This album is something that I'm proud of. It works for me, then if everybody else likes it, that's a bonus. Half the tracks weren't even written for it - they were just for songwriting's sake.

Is there a question that you always get asked by people?

I guess the main one os the Beatles getting back together and me singing Dad's stuff. I've always said no, because I'm not here to be a stand-in. If, down the road, I feel I'm well established and it was for something important - on the magnitude of Live Aid, then I'd consider doing it as a one-off.

Do you watch talent shows like The X Factor and have you been asked to appear on a reality show?

I watch them from time to time. Sometimes I get tired of them, but sometimes I see decent talent. They've tried asking me on shows, but I wouldn't. Never say never, but right now, not a chance.

Do you speak to your half-brother Sean much?

Of course. He's one of my best buddies. He's been under my wing since day one but he's flying well at the moment. He's doing great.

Do you ever Google yourself?

I have Google alerts, so I'm aware of everything posted about me. I want to keep up on who is saying what to a degree. If I have an insight that someone is going to say something bad, I just delete it rather than let outside influences bring me down.

Do you have any vices?

Food. I'm a closet chef. I live in Italy and I'm there partially because of my first stepfather (Cynthia's late husband, hotelier Roberto Bassilini). We'd visit Italy in the school holidays, so I absorbed the culture and its food from an early age.

Who or what makes you happiest?

Who? My mom. She always puts a smile on my face. I also love being at home in Italy and I've rediscovered a joy for going on the road and playing acoustically.

Your mum recently renewed her wedding vows to her husband Noel Charles in the South of France...

It was Brilliant. It was so beautiful. I've never seen her so happy.

Would you like to get married?

Marriage in the non-religious sense, where one is committed, yes. I'm gettng a little jealous of my mates and their children. I never felt that the time was right before, because I want to be older and wiser. But I'm certainly not going to rush into anything that's not right.

So you're single?

I am. I've been single for about five years. I've just been getting on with work and hoping that I bump into the right person one day.

You too photos of Charlene Wittstock before her widding to Prince Alber of Monaco...

She's seen my photo exhibition in New York and asked me to come in 20 minutes before her civl wedding to take shots while she was getting hair and make-up done. I got some great, great shots.

You grew up surrounded by famous faces, but are you ever starstruck?

Constantly. You know, major actors like John Hurt and Gary Oldman. I could give a list of people I'm in awe of - anyone that works hard, stays grounded and is kind to people.

Okay, here's three songs from his new album! So now everyone can voice their opinions...have a listen:



"Touch The Sky," "Invisible," "Just For You" in that order.

I think "Touch The Sky" would have been perfect, but Julian is apparently releasing "Disconnected."

Wallrus, so glad you're enjoying it! It is laid back and more calm/mid-tempo. But that chorus on "Just For You" is pretty awesome. Also, his lyrics are impressing me.

Oh, that will be nice! I wonder if it will be filmed...wonder what song he'll play. Better pick wisely.

Good grief! If I was only in London now...Since I can't have my favorite Lennon live I will live vicariously through the excitement of seeing his son's live. And since I already have seen Sean and KNOW he rocks hard in concert, I would very much love to see Julian.

Has anyone here ever seen Jules live?

Somehow Don't Wake Me Up has jumped to the top of the line lately and included it in my special playlist of dreamy songs.

Bottled water and club soda? That was harsh. It's like, "have this very bland and flavorless drink."

At this point, I'd say the drink fits just about right- until I see some legit stage work I am holding my ground.
