For the first time, Sean Ono Lennon interviewed Sir Paul McCartney about his relationship with his father John.
Sir Paul, who met Lennon, said, “I look back now as a fan.
“How lucky I was to meet this weird Teddy Boy from the bus. I played music like I did. We’re the guy together, we’re complementary to each other!”
This discussion will be part of a special two-part Radio 2 program that will mark John Lennon’s 80s, Beatle’s birthday.
During the chat, Sir Paul plays Just Fun, one of the first Lennon-McCartney songs.
Written because teenagers played the truth from school, it has not been officially recorded – although a snippet from the Beatles’ Let It Be movie was heard before.
Speaking to Sean, Sir Paul admitted that his first attempts at writing with John were “not very good”.
“Eventually, we started writing some really good songs and then we really enjoyed the process of learning together.
The documentary will feature interviews with Sean’s half-brother Julian and his godfather Sir Elton John.
Radio 2 boss Helen Thomas said: “John Lennon is one of the most popular and much loved musicians on Radio 2 audiences, so he is delighted and proud of Sean’s first radio show in which he talks at length about his father, with brothers Julian, Paul McCartney and Elton John. Will be broadcast on our network. “
The shows will be available on October 9 and October 3 and 4, just before Lennon’s birthday.
The star was shot dead in 1980 outside his New York residence. Earlier this week, it was revealed that his killer, Mark Chapman, had apologized to Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono during a parole trial in August.
Chapman told the parole team at the Wendy Correctional Facility in New York that he would like to reiterate that he’s sorry for my crime.
“It’s very selfish. I’m sorry for the pain I caused her [Ono]. I think about it all the time. “
