by John Lennon did Julian state inspired many of the songs on
'Isolation' is correct!
In 1984 Julian said, "I'm not trying to carry on a tradition
- except maybe in the simplicity of dad's writing. A lot of songs
are too complicated these days, and I think if you're going to get
a point across, you might as well do it in the simplest way, which
is what I learned from him. Like dad's song 'Isolation,' which inspired
many of the songs on my album."
