  • Interviewer:

    On the new album, you got Julian playing drums behind you on "Ya-Ya"

  • John Lennon:

    Oh, yes!

  • Interviewer:

    Yeah, is he into drums or does he just like to noodle around with instruments in general.

  • John Lennon:

    He fiddles around with different instruments, I think he's into the guitar because of his old man, probably. And he does play a little, sort of piano, you know, in a child way, you know, nobody's teaching him or nothing. I wouldn't, you know force him, I'd let him play what he likes. But I brought him over here, because I can't leave the country because of immigration. So he comes to visit me, and I was in the middle of this album, and I thought "Oh god, he's gonna be bored." You know last time he was here I took him to Disneyland and stuff like that in LA. But this time it was New York and I thought he's gonna be bored stiff, and he loved the studio. He loved the knobs, and the controls, and he ran around all the instruments all the time. So we just sort of slyly put the tape recorder on, while he was drumming and I just started singing "Ya-ya" And we just taped it. He doesn't know he's on it yet, cause, we only just got the album in, you know? And I'm gonna ship it to him today, and I haven't told him, I'm just gonna let him find out for himself. He'll love it.

  • Interviewer:

    He might go after his own manger now, you never know.

  • John Lennon:

    Oh, oh, I hope not. It's too early.

  • Interviewer:

    How olds Julian now?

  • John Lennon:

    He's eleven.

  • Interviewer:

    Wow, he's really grown up, isn't he?

  • John Lennon:

    I know, it's amazing, you know. He's eleven, he's like fourteen. This generation is so different. I mean, he's hipper than I was at eleven, it's amazing. But in one way, it's cool because, you don't, I don't think we're gonna have that communication gap bit, you know?

43 years ago today » concert for bangladeshaugust 1, 1971

"i think the most memorable thing, really, was the fact that it came off and that it worked because there was very little time preceding the concert, to organize it. the concert happened to be on august the 1st because that was  the only day madison square garden was available. so it was pure coincidence. and all the people that were assembled there with very short notice, very little rehearsal in come cases there was no rehearsal. i managed to do a little bit with the horn players and with the rhythm section but that was the main thing, that it actually worked." -george harrison
