Clip of Julian singing "Too Late for Goodbyes"
Background Narration - When he hit it big in the mid 80's, Julian Lennon was blasted by critics who dismissed him as a mere imitation of his late father, former Beatle John Lennon.
Clip of John singing "Imagine"
Background Narration - The topic popped up in this 1989 interview
Background Narration - Julian got tired of defending himself and in 1992 dropped out of the music business. But now at 36, he's back and has a new CD and a new attitude.
Julian with guitar singing "Good to Be Lonely"
Background Narration - On the CD Photograph Smile, Julian wears his Beatle badge with honor, especially his new single "I Don't Wanna Know".
Clip of video "I Don't Wanna Know"
Pat O'Brien - Has anybody in your inner circle said in front of you 'that sounds like the Beatles'?
Background Narration - In fact, the video for the song spoofs the Fab Four. And we have your very first look. Directed by Julian himself, it features 4 actors playing in a Beatle-like band called "The Butlers". There's a send off of early Beatles concerts and as well a take off on their film "A Hard Day's Night". And if this looks familiar, it's because it's a satire of the cover of the classic cover of Abbey Road. Julian pops in and out of the video in a bit part and with a touch of his dad's irreverence, he's shown next to a very relaxed queen. It's his own unique way of paying tribute to his ancestry. And it's a way of saying if he's a chip off the old Beatle block, so be it.
Pat O'Brien - None. Period.
Pat O'Brien - Daddy's work is never done. You can see more of Julian Lennon on VH1's Behind the Music on Sunday, April 25. And his new CD, great by the way, is in stores now.
