julian lennon


is it just me or does julian lennon look kind of uncomfortable when chuck berry keeps mentioning his father? i'm sure it's difficult being in his father's shadow all the time but did he really think he was being featured as a guest on this bill in recognition of HIS contributions to rock music? oh, yeah and he butchers johnny b good. seriously, i felt embarrassed and uncomfortable watching it. and in that goofy ass suit! with a pompadour! i bet he looks back on this experience with very mixed feelings

I thought he actually looked pretty cool with the get-up he had on. Granted, I don't know much about his own music and honestly don't care to look it up, but he has a right to be uncomfortable about his father's mention when Julian has voiced how strained the relationship was and things like this only made it harder for him to find peace with his father... Nobody likes that struggle out in the limelight.

As for butchering Johnny B. Goode vocally, that's just not possible. At all. Nobody listens to it for the vocals and there isn't really a bad way to sing it since it's mainly just a swing have fun song. Who cares about the vocal performance? He didn't do bad.

You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Yeah, he told me you're gay.

I also thought he did a decent job. Sad that weren't real close but he will always have that uncomfortable feeling. I wish he could have established a career.

I also though it was a strange introduction.
