Julian Lennon and Beatles Memorabilia

Not too long ago I learned that Julian Lennon turned 50. It was difficult to believe time went by so fast, and brought me back to my own mortality. I was six years old when "The Beatles" were just coming into their own. Their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show started a chain reaction that lead to their immortality through their works and tools of the trade.

One can only imagine the sorts of products, personal items, media clips, photographs, or other items of mass merchandise that fell under the package of the Fab Four at that time. Promoters were very creative, and very responsive to their market which would primarily consist of starry-eyed, fainting teenage girls and guys who liked their hip music and mod hair cuts. Thus, for the guys (and gals) one could find "Beatles" wigs. Back in the day, one was not cool unless they had one.

In a recent interview with Julian Lennon, he spoke a bit about his private Beatles collection and how he still seeks certain pieces of Beatles memorabilia pertaining to his father, John Lennon, one of the founding members of The Beatles.

Julian Lennon is a decent human being and an incredible artist in his own right. He is also a direct descendant of one of most controversial talents in modern music history. As a descendant, one can only imagine the things that a father may pass on to his son, or bits of the son that were passed to the father throughout the course of their lives together.

"Beatles Memorabilia: The Julian Lennon Collection," provides a collector's perspective with a more personal point of view. The book was written to be shared with collectors, friends, and fans of The Beatles and by Julian Lennon.

The Early Days

When I first heard "Valotte," it brought tears to my eyes. The song told a story, voice was hauntingly familiar, and the music was something that has stayed with me for years.

"Don't Wake Me Up" by Julian Lennon - Everything Changes

I've been taking my time

Sipping water from wine

Life feels so divine

I've got you on my mind

Please don't wake me this time

Don't wake me up in the morning

Because I'm dreaming of you

Don't wake me up in the morning

This dream can't last forever,

This dream can't all be true

'Cause I can feel I'm falling


I've been waiting to see,

What will happen to me

I just want to be free

Just to dream reality

Please won't you let me be


Don't wake me up in the morning

Because I'm dreaming of you

Don't wake me up in the morning

I'm flying into the blue

This dream can't last forever

This dream can't all be true

Cause I can feel I'm falling

Please won't you let me be

      A fascinating, and well written article. Julian Lennon brings not only a high degree of creativity through his music and photography, but also great compassion through his philanthropy throughout the world.

      I was older during The Beatles rage, but I still loved many of their songs just the same, even if I wasn't one of the swooning masses. When one of their songs comes on the car radio, it always makes me feel bubbly and happy. It's sad that two of them are already gone. Good review!
