Julian Lennon scored several chart hits of his own in the mid-1980s. But he will, of course, forever be known as the oldest son of the Beatles legend John. And in an interview to promote his third children’s book, Julian revealed that he once received a message several years after his father’s shocking murder.
John Lennon was shot and killed in December 1980 as he returned to his Manhattan apartment. The former Beatle had spent the day recording material with his wife Yoko at the Record Plant. And as the pair got out of their ride home, John was fatally shot in the back four times at close range.
