Charles Gibson at 7:30: (In our 8:30 hour we will be talking to Julian Lennon about) his father, his step-mother Yoko Ono, and Paul McCartney his close friend. Paul McCartney is being inducted tonight into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo performer already in as part of the Beatle and Julian Lennon, a little later, is going to perform off of his new album.
They go into other stories...
Charles Gibson at 7:34: (After an either year absence, Julian Lennon has returned to the music business with) Photograph Smile and a new attitude. The son of legendary rock star John Lennon says he's kicked the shy bucket and he's ready to talk his mind about various things including being compared to his famous father as well as his own tumultuous relationship with John's second wife Yoko Ono. Julian Lennon is in New York to attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony tonight where former Beatle and longtime friend Paul McCartney will be inducted. And Julian Lennon is joining us now. Good to have you here.
Charles Gibson: I was amazed when I heard that Paul McCartney was being inducted and then somebody said, 'Well, he was going in as a solo performer having already been inducted as a Beatle.'
Charles Gibson: And you really were closer to him in life than your Dad?
Charles Gibson: And after your dad was gone he sort of took you under his wing then?
Charles Gibson: Your pop was inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,
Charles Gibson: once as a Beatle, once as a solo
Charles Gibson: performer, and you didn't go to that second induction ceremony, did you?
Charles Gibson: You didn't know about it.
Charles Gibson: Were you shut out?
Charles Gibson: By Yoko Ono?
Charles Gibson: Has she... do you feel, tried to shut you and your mother.
Charles Gibson: How come?
Charles Gibson: Don't you feel a sadness about that? I mean just as somebody who.
Charles Gibson: Can it be repaired? Are there rifts there that?
Charles Gibson: You went away from the business for seven years, missed ya!
Charles Gibson: Why were you gone? What did you need the time for?
Charles Gibson: As son of, right.
Charles Gibson: You're going to be doing a song from the album in our 8:30 half hour. One of our producers came upstairs and said, 'He is so great. He sounds just like his dad.' and I thought, 'First part he's going to take as a compliment and second part he's gonna go emm.' How do you look at the two parts of that statement?
Charles Gibson: This is your music this stuff..
Charles Gibson: The fact that you went away for that period of time, are you not pleased with the first four albums? Did you not feel this was you?
Charles Gibson: When you stepped away seven years ago, did you think, 'That's it. I'm not going to come back.'
Charles Gibson: Well, it's good to have you back.
Charles Gibson: Good to have the album out and John - Julian Lennon will be back later in the show.
Charles Gibson: Julian will be back to perform a little later and uh we thank you for being here.
Charles Gibson at 8:48: And now the music of Julian Lennon. The song, 'Day After Day,' from his CD 'Photograph Smile.' He is accompanied by guitarist Matt Backer.
Charles Gibson: Good show tomorrow but we want to hear more music and so Julian Lennon and Matt Backer are going to play us off the air - 'Good To Be Lonely.' We'll see you tomorrow. Take care.
Julian and Matt perform 'Good To Be Lonely.'
