Happy Birthday to Julian Lennon, who turns 58-years-old today (April 8th). Julian, who is John Lennon's first son with college sweetheart, the late-Cynthia Powell Lennon, holds the distinction of being the first natural child of any the Beatles, being born on April 8th, 1963. Julian also is the first of the next generation to pursue a recording career, and released his critically acclaimed debut set, Valotte — which was produced by the late-Phil Ramone — in October 1984. Over the years, he's released a total of six albums — The Secret Value Of Daydreaming (1986); Mr. Jordan (1989); Help Yourself (1991); Photograph Smile (1998); and Everything Changes (2011).
Since 1984, Julian has scored four Top 40 hits — including the Top Tens “Valotte” and “Too Late For Goodbyes.”
Last summer, Julian Lennon appeared on and provided the album cover photo for Be True To Yourself, the latest solo set by Badfinger guitarist Joey Molland. Around the same time, Julian teamed up with Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt for a new cover of Radiohead's “Karma Police.” The clip was featured on AXS TV's At Home And Social With Nuno Bettencourt & Friends special.
