Julian Lennon is busy promoting his latest album Everything Changes. Rolling Stone spoke with the Grammy nominated singer-songwriter about his new music, his love for photography and working with Aerosmith.
Fifteen years after the release of his last album, Julian Lennon was ready Friday night to celebrate his return to public life as an artist, both musical and visual. The 50-year-old Lennon’s new album, Everything Changes, is a modern, mature version of the pop songs and balladry that began his career in 1984 on the platinum-selling Valotte, but he says he is just as committed to his new work as a photographer.
“It’s made me feel more free with any artistic project,” Lennon told Rolling Stone, noting his surprise at the positive reviews for his pictures, beginning with his first gallery show in New York in 2010. “It was like the bizarre final acceptance of being seen as an artist in my own right after so many years. Thank God for that. That spurred me on.”
As the new album played, Lennon was joined by guests at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, located in the lobby of the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, where his behind-the-scenes pictures of U2 shared wall space with Lennon’s quietly epic landscapes. Dressed in black jeans and leather jacket, Lennon was noticeably bulked up, like a man who knows his way around a gym. Read more at Rolling Stone

John Lennon’s son Julian is convinced he has been “snubbed” and “ignored” by Paul McCartney after the former Beatle failed to invite him to his recent wedding.
The music legend married American heiress Nancy Shevell in London on October 2nd and followed it up with a second reception in New York later that month.
Lennon claims he wasn’t invited to either of the wedding parties, and alleges he was “snubbed” at the London premiere of Martin Scorsese’s film, George Harrison: Living In The Material World, last month and the five-year anniversary performance of the Beatles musical Love in Las Vegas in June.
A message on Lennon’s personal Facebook.com page, obtained by Dailymail.co.uk, was posted on October 23rd, the day after McCartney’s New York wedding reception, and appears to take aim at the veteran star.
The post reads, “Wow… Snubbed at Macca’s wedding, snubbed at the anniversary of LOVE in Vegas! Snubbed at Macca’s wedding reception in NYC, last night.
“Snubbed at George’s film premiere… What have I done to be ignored in such a way?… I was not invited to ANY of these events… I thought we had a relationship… Obviously not… Gimme some truth… Maybe now it’s time to tell the truth… I & my mother will not be eradicated from history… How dare they.”

John Lennon‘s son Julian has ended his long-running family feud with half -brother Sean and his former step-mother Yoko Ono, insisting “things are good” between the trio.
Lennon’s murder in 1980 reportedly sparked a rift between the siblings, with Julian and his mother left to battle Ono through the courts for a s hare of the singer’s estate.
The brothers, both musicians, appeared to grow closer in recent years, and even performed together for a United Nations concert last year (09).
And Sean and Ono proved they harboured no hard feelings against The Beatles legend’s other son when they put on a united front to support Julian ‘s photography exhibit at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York last Thursday night (September 16, 2010)
Julian insists he’s laid the feud to rest – and he regularly keeps in t ouch with his former rivals.
He tells the New York Post, “Things are good between us. Whenever I’m i n New York we all get together. Sean even asked me to shoot his album cov er – for free, of course.”
