Someone posted a link to his page the other day, and he was talking about how he hadn't been invited in some of the comments.  I think because someone asked him why he wasn't at the tribute show. I'll try and find it.

EDIT: That's strange, I can't find it. He posted a message, something about the 50th an. and someone asked him why he wasn't there. He replied on a few different occasions and the general vibe was a tad bitter, and definitely hurt. The post just isn't there anymore, not on his fb or his twitter page.

If you mean Billy Rhythm's link to a blog in post 89 in this thread, that is not a link to Julian's fb, but an article about where he is quoted as having said certain things, the most recent quote in it being many months ago.

This is Julian's fb page:

No, I don't think that was it. I swear I'm not going mad.

Oh I dunno, maybe I am going mad. I can picture it, though… :/

Yes, I'd posted the link in the news thread.

Thank god for that, so I'm not going potty! Is that not his fb page then?

One of the comments where I thought he sounded a bit bitter is where a woman a Cynthia says he should've been there, he says he offered… then down further, when asked why he wasn't there, he says '' What… and stand in the audience clapping along, watching other people sing Beatles Karaoke? No thanks…''. Why did he offer to perform if he didn't want to be there?

That's definitely him. He offered to perform, but when he was turned down for that, he didn't want to just sit in the audience as the consolation prize instead. I can understand his feeling insulted.

Same here. Otherwise he's no different from Sean on that night. Speaking of Sean, he confused me because they'd show him singing along and dancing slightly, but his face looked so bored. He either just isn't a very emotive person or he was bored and faking it for the cameras. Really weird when seeing his mother going nuts dancing, and Paul and Ringo clearly getting into it (not to mention Nancy really having a good time!)

I think the former. I can't think of a photo or video where his expression isn't completely flat (even when he's smiling).

Maybe it's the Japanese in him, they supposedly don't express their feelings very openly. I'd say it's more likely that than him being bored.

Sean stuck out like a sore thumb, so much so that the wife was cracking jokes about it during the show. I think Sean didn't really want to be there, but felt he had to, being John's kid and all. To be fair, with all the baggage that comes with being the kid of a Beatle (which Julian has talked about a lot at times), I don't blame him.

No, I guess it's not easy. I dunno, I mean obviously I can't really empathize, but he must be proud of his dad, surely? And this was to celebrate him and the other boys….

Were McCartney's kids in the audience?

No, I don't think they were, were they? But then he (Paul) was.

The only McCartney kid I can recognize right away is James, and I didn't see him at all.

Not that I know of.

But here's an interesting bit of news – a friend of mine was a seatfiller at the event, and she said Jane Asher was there.

Oh, that's quite nice (though perhaps a bit weird for Nancy?). She was with Paul for some time.

Weird that Jane would be there…? Especially as she's completely distanced herself and refused to talk about ANY of her experiences in the 60s and with Paul.

 

Re: Sean feeling the burden of being the son of a Beatle, I'm sure he hasn't hesitated to use that to his advantage in the past. Also, if the Japanese part of him is what's so flat affect, how to explain Yoko dancing and smiling and singing like a Woodstock hippy? :lol:
