*I was reading the 1980 Playboy interview with him and he sounded so bitter. Nothing good to say about Paul or George, said benefit concerts were useless, was negative towards anything Beatles related and was really a dick about Julian. Basically said Sean was planned, but Julian was a mistake because of alcohol. Seriously, John was a prick
Whenever John Lennon did press on a solo album, all interviewers ever wanted to talk about was the Beatles. That's the reason he was frustrated, folks. With regards to Julian, he said in the Playboy interview itself, "I don't love Julian any less as a child, whether he was born from a bottle of whiskey, or because they didn't have pills in those days. He's here, he's still my son, he belongs to me and he always will. Julian and I will have a relationship in the future". It was his guilt over neglecting Julian that made him pay so much attention to Sean. John and Julian would have had a relationship if that nut job with a gun hadn't have done what he did. But that's the way things turned out.
