A lot of people think that I grew up in recording studios and knew the whole process, but that was never the case.

Julian Lennon

As much as I love music, in my mind, photography is what makes me the happiest – that’s for sure.

Julian Lennon

Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world, but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces – no communication, adultery, divorce? You can’t do it, not if you’re being true and honest with yourself.

Julian Lennon

He was like a real dad, you know. We used to sit down with guitars and mess around.

Julian Lennon

He wasn’t a great father. He was a great musician. That’s always been a touchy one, and it will be until I can find the answer, but I don’t know if there is one.

Julian Lennon

I am a complete mother’s boy. I try to do everything with honour, respect and grace because the last thing I would want to do is hurt her.

Julian Lennon

I am not John Lennon; I never will be!

Julian Lennon

I can’t stay mad very long. I get grumpy when I read a bad review. I say, ‘How could he say that about my music?’ Then I forget about it. If I got mad every time somebody wrote something negative about me, I’d be exploding all the time. I’d be burned out just from reading reviews.

Julian Lennon

I don’t meditate in any formal way, but I often lie in bed or find myself in nature and enter into that state of quiet where I get images, feelings, or melodies.

Julian Lennon

I find it upsetting to see the erosion of manners. It’s very scary. Where are the ‘pleases’ and ‘thank yous?’

Julian Lennon

I get twitchy if I don’t pick up a guitar or sit at the piano every now and then… I have to do it; I don’t have a choice.

Julian Lennon

I had always thought of starting my own record company. I haven’t regretted the decision – yet!

Julian Lennon

I have a short temper – I think it’s part of the Celtic background. I used to be a lot more angry, but I was quite discreet with it.

Julian Lennon

I live in a small apartment in London, not some big house with a lot of security. I don’t like too much security. There’s no freedom. I’m a person, not some precious diamond that needs guarding every second.

Julian Lennon

I love to sit on a mountain top and gaze. I don’t think of anything but the people I care about and the view.

Julian Lennon

I realise myself that hate wastes a lot of time and energy, and I would rather re-direct any energy that I have to good and positive use.

Julian Lennon

I think everyone has the potential to be creative, but they have to find the avenue or avenues that work for them.

Julian Lennon

I’m not one for flings, I can tell you that.

Julian Lennon

I’m one of those people who snake through the crowd, keep my head low. I’m not looking for attention.

Julian Lennon

I’ve been a philanthropist for all my life, and… I’ve had many involvements in humanitarian and environmental issues.

Julian Lennon

I’ve done every kind of touring known to mankind. I’ve played the big and the small places.

Julian Lennon

I’ve found constancy and balance between creativity and normality.

Julian Lennon

If you bring a child into this world, whether it’s planned or an accident, you’d better make sure you can care for it. You have to be around. You make time. It’s as simple as that.

Julian Lennon

Like most photographers, I try to capture a moment in my work.

Julian Lennon

Music’s been with me from the get-go. It was always around me as a kid. Dad got me my first guitar when I was 11 and, at school, if you wanted to be cool you had to be in a band.

Julian Lennon

My dad’s music was a great inspiration to me.

Julian Lennon

My goal in life has been to be a songsmith, not a pop person.

Julian Lennon

On the one hand, I’ve had such a normal upbringing with my mum, who has kept me grounded, but on the other, the wild experiences through my dad.

Julian Lennon

People are generally badly advised when they’re starting out in the creative field.

Julian Lennon

You never know how your work is going to be received.
