Up to Menu New section on Official website & Julian considers participating in John Lennon tribute concert.
Julian has spoken many times in the past about wanting to put together educational games to teach kids about the environment and the world around them... on Friday, JulianLennon.com added a new section called Too Young To Vote which does just that...

"Too Young To Vote" is geared towards Julian's younger fans with an area for them to send in art work and photos as well as a special competition. It also features a game of sorts where young adults and others can learn about world cultures and the environment. Current topics include women's rights around the world and earthquakes. You can visit "Too Young To Vote" by clicking the option under the "Moon" on the homepage of www.JulianLennon.com.

In Julian's latest newsletter, also released on Friday, he mentions that he has been invited to perform at the upcoming all-star tribute concert to John Lennon at New York's Radio City Music Hall. The tribute concert is scheduled to air on television on or near what would have been John's 61st birthday on October 9. 

Profits from the show will go to the Violence Policy Center, a gun control group. It is unknown if Julian will participate at this time it is simply something which he has been asked to do and is considering.

Up to MenuLinda McCartney Tribute Album
From the Sun Friday April 13, 2001

MADONNA, Britney Spears, Queen and The Corrs are among stars recording Beatles songs for an album tribute to Linda McCartney.

Lenny Kravitz, Art Garfunkel, members of Wings - the band fronted by Paul McCartney and his late wife - and The Eagles will also play on the record.

And producers have approached former Beatles Paul, Ringo and George Harrison to see if they will contribute to the project. Julian Lennon and Ringo Starr's son Zak have signed up to take part.

The double CD is expected to raise millions for the charity Women And Cancer. Linda died from the disease in 1998.

Beatles fan and charity spokesman Darrol Edwards, who is helping to put the album together, told me: "We felt it would be a fitting tribute to Linda.

"The response from the big stars has been amazing. About 12 tracks are in the bag.

"The record industry needs to recognize the great work Linda did and hopefully this record will raise a fortune for Women And Cancer." Madonna is still making up her mind over which song to cover while The Corrs are recording The Long And Winding Road.

Members of Queen are expected to perform Paul's solo track Souvenir.

And a children's choir from the McCartneys' local school, Peasmarsh Primary, East Sussex, have recorded And I Love Her.

The project is likely to be backed up by a TV special. And live concerts on both sides of the Atlantic are also a possibility when the album is released next year.

Meanwhile, Yoko Ono is helping to organize a huge all-star tribute to John Lennon at New York's Radio City Music Hall on what would have been his 61st birthday on October 9.

Profits from the show will go to the Violence Policy Center, a gun control group. The Beatle was shot dead on a New York street in 1980 by an obsessed fan.

Julian has recorded the song "Blackbird" for the tribute album for Linda McCartney.... 

Up to MenuI've received a few emails from people asking about an invitation they received to a new Julian Lennon intranet on the web. The Julian Lennon intranet is a site started by a fan and is NOT official nor is it connected with Julian Lennon, JulianLennon.com, HeyJules.com, or Jules Rules.
