The 'Howard Stern Show'
February 18th, 1999
Howard: Right and Yoko's telling you
Robyn: Right self righteous all of a sudden.
Howard: and Yoko's like, 'If Julian doesn't give up his drug problem I'm not going to give him any money.' You know what,
Robyn: Right.you've got to prove to me you're straight.
Howard: 'Hey, I'm a God damn adult, let me worry about my drug problems.' You couldn't pay me to listen to her music - or the kid's music. I swear to God.
Robyn: She doesn't have enough money to get you to listen to her.
Howard: And I'll tell you something, they said to me from the record company, 'Sean wants to come in and do the show but you're gonna be nice about the record.' I listened to it. I said, 'I'm not going to be nice about it. It's not good.' I can't sit there and lie.
Howard: From mommy.
Howard: So, what happened? How did you finally get the dough from Yoko? What did you have to do? I mean.
Howard: Thank God.
Howard: Right, no kidding.
Howard: How did you manage to get copyrights to some of his music? Yoko gave them up?
Howard: Oh, my God.
Howard: It makes me coo coo.
Robyn: Meanwhile she's selling anything he touched.
Howard: Yeah, that's the other thing I don't get with her. Why bastardize his name? The guy was a great artist, we'll all give him that. Maybe not a great father but a great artist.
Howard: Why neckties and mugs and?
Howard: Instead of getting money or any kind of thing from John, she would send you that crap she'd put out.
Howard: Oh, of course.
Howard: I was horrified. I'm not even related. I'm just a fan. I mean, I was horrified.
Howard: Right. What kind of stuff are you trying to buy back?
Howard: Because it's the only way you can connect with your father.
Howard: I can not figure out why John Lennon, at some point, didn't make provisions for his child?
Robyn: Right, didn't she?
Robyn: Right, but didn't Yoko also have a kid that she sort of
Robyn: disappeared from?
Howard: That kid probably got more money than Julian.
Robyn: I don't think so. No.
Howard: I find Yoko to be very stingy, quite frankly.
Robyn: That's Yoko. She just goes.
Howard: I read somewhere where she
Robyn: You know, old family out. New family in.
Howard: where she'll buy a bunch of clothing for herself and take it and throw it out and buy new clothes something like that I was reading, I said
Robyn: Right. Trunks full of unused things that were never opened.
Howard: Yeah, I just hate hypocrisy when people talk about loving the world and giving peace to the world and then they're busy making mugs out of John Lennon's memory and they're not giving money to his kid. Yoko Ono should say, 'John was out of his mind. Should have made provisions for Julian. I'm gonna make things right. Here's 25 million. 25 million that's a, she wouldn't even know it was missing.
Howard: She would not know. And, why I say the money is because that's the only thing left from his father's legacy. And, not only that, he's John Lennon's son, why shouldn't he participate in that money. Yoko's participating! I mean, clearly.
Howard: It makes me nuts. Not that you had a bad life
Howard: Right. It's just aggravating.
