“He Was A Hypocrite”

“He was a hypocrite. Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world, but he could not show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son,” said Julian Lennon, who was abandoned at age five by his father, Beatle John Lennon. “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.” —Servant (Summer 1998)
