“John didn’t make it to the hospital until three days after our son was born - the first opportunity he’d had to get away from the tour. […] He came in like a whirlwind, racing through the doors in his haste to find us. He kissed me, then looked at his son, who was in my arms. There were tears in his eyes. ‘Cyn, he’s bloody marvellous! He’s fantastic.’ He sat on the bed and I put the baby into his arms. He held each tiny hand, marvelling at the miniature fingers, and a big smile spread over his face. ‘Who’s going to be a famous little rocker like his dad, then?’ he said.”
[Cynthia Lennon, John]
Happy Birthday Julian!
