Julian recived a wonderful reception from the audience, he appeared to be quite knocked out and bemused by it. During the interview the subject of Yoko and the sale of his fathers work was raised and it was plain to see how emotionally Julian has been effected by it. With his arm held aloft by fellow guest Leslie Phillips he allowed himself, somewhat shyly to bask in the adoration of his fans. Unfortunatly a live version of 'I Don't Wanna Know' was not on the cards but a good mimed rendition complete with a kiss to the camera gave the devoted followers even more reason to scream and shout. Well done Jules!!!!
Nice to see Julian on top form promoting his latest single 'I Don't Wanna Know'. Skillfully aided by Sara Cox and Mark Eccleston(who had obviously done their homework) the interview rolled along at a lively pace with excerpts from The Butlers video, a tongue in cheek backwards look at the careers of a well known band called The Beatles. Julian appeared comfortable and relaxed if not a little tired. Perhaps forming his own record company (Music From Another Room) has put him on the right path to the stardom he rightfully deserves as the album Photograph Smile, when given the right amount of air play and recognition, will one day be regarded as a classic! (well my Mum loves it anyway!!) :)

Julian Lennon appeared as a guest today on the 'Lunch In The Sun' programme on ITV performing his new, soon to be released single 'I Don't Wanna Know'.He then cooked up one of his favourite recipies 'Steak Diane' in a mushroom, onion, herb, white wine and cream sause. It looked delicious (roll on smell-a-vision!).Julian's quiet yet humorous personality seemed to go down well with the ladies.
'Nice to see you looking happy, tanned and fit Jules! All the best for the new single!'
News update straight from 'Tower Records' in London yesterday:

They are praising Julian Lennon in Liverpool, the Magical Mystery Tour guide thought that 'Photograph Smile' was the beter of the Lennon son's albums. The Sean Lennon one sounds naff to be blunt!
Julian entered the UK breakfast show 'This Morning' late possibly due to disscusions over his video 'Day After Day'. The show had run into money difficulties and could only afford to show 60 seconds of his video. As they had already shown 40 seconds they were having trouble showing the rest.
The interview was made longer but did not give Julian much time to advertise his new album. The presenters even had to ask Julian what it was called and he had to correct them when they said he had only done 3 albums when infact it was five. The full interview will appear on this site soon....
Sean hasn't been the only second generation Lennon in the news recently. His older half-brother Julian coincidentally has a new album, Photograph Smile, released on the same day as Sean's Into The Sun. He told Dylan Jones of the Sunday Times about the problems he'd had to overcome in recent times: "I went mad for a couple of years, I admit. It was my lifestyle. There were too many people around me who took advantage of me, who used and abused me, for years. I took care of everyone's bills, paid for meals, drink, everything. I attracted the wrong kind of people, hangers-on, and I did that a lot. Now I feel I'm wearing the cap of responsibility. I still drink and I feel that I am able to control that, because a lot of people lose it with drugs and drink. I think I'd be in a worse place if I'd had more success."
