MTV Asia has a small article about Julian and his feelings toward John as a father figure. The article does not appear to have any new information but was likely formatted from quotes taken from various interviews in 1998/1999.
The entire article can be found on MTV Asia's site... (Go)
Thanks Laura D.
They also have included a performance of "Crucified" recorded during a live sound check in Nashville, TN. Note: "Crucified" is only available via streaming audio, it is not available on the Interview CD which you can purchase at MP3.com
Even if you don't buy the CD if you listen to the song or interview money can be made from the payback for playback program done on MP3. So each time you play "Crucified" or one of the interview segments money is being earned for good causes.

There is a new independent film called "Pop & Me" which has started showing in LA and NYC thanks to a distribution deal with MGM. The film is a documentary about fathers and sons done by father and son duo Richard and Chris Roe (shown to the right with Julian). The two spent 6 months traveling around the world interviewing 29 sets of father and sons in 26 countries. While in Monaco in 1996, they met up with Julian who discussed his lack of relationship with John. For more information on the film check out their website at http://www.popandme.com... the trailer available on the site has a small clip of Julian talking mentioning how in interviews his father is always brought up but that Julian himself is his own person... also check out the June 19, 2000 edition of People magazine which has an article on the film as well as the photo of Julian with filmmakers.. Thanks Lynn
This really intrigued me as EVERY biography and the majority of all the teen magazines in the 80s all mentioned that Julian was drummer for Quasar and that Justin played guitar.. well in actuality, neither Julian or Justin were ever in the band. Quasar was actually a heavy rock type 3 piece band consisting of Paul Inder (son of Motorhead's lead guitarist, Lemmy), Pat McMillan and Les Warner. "Quasar's" rehearsing room was simply near Julian's and so Julian and Justin Clayton would stop in and jam with them occasionally.. at one of these jam sessions a bunch of pictures were taken of them and the press put out that Julian and Justin were actually part of the band...

Some of you might know that I also do a website for Gregory Darling, co-writer/piano player on 'Photograph Smile' and piano player during the last tour.. Amongst Greg's other projects, Greg has been doing some more writing with Julian for Julian's next album.. he says that the music "sounds great! Very upbeat."
Please check out Gregory Darling's site for more information!
Also for anyone who has missed the VH1 Behind the Music #73 which was on Julian.. it will be re-airing on June 6th, 2000 at 12pm EST. Here is the little blurb VH1 is using in promotion of it:
Yoko Ono is terrified that her husband John Lennon's killer will try to execute her and the ex-Beatle's two children if he is released from prison later this year.
Mark David Chapman is eligible for parole in December. He was caged for life for the 1980 murder.
Lennon's widow says that world-shattering act of violence has haunted her every day of her life since.
"I think we have to protect ourselves," a nervous Ono, 67, told a tabloid TV show to be aired today in the US.
"I have to really be concerned about the safety of Julian and Sean and myself."
Yoko adds that her blood curdled when she heard the news that a man had tried to stab George Harrison and his wife to death in their home last December.
She still lives in the Dakota building in New York, outside which John was killed.
She will object strongly to Chapman's parole, fearing the possibility that she could see him walking the streets.
The evening of March 31st marks the posting of the long awaited Version 3 of the Official site JulianLennon.com
New features include a "Fanspeak" email list which will allow fans to interact with each other as well as learn of new happenings on everything Julian. As well as a brand new Navigation system.. go to http://www.julianlennon.com to check it out!
