Wow…Julian is angry. He posted this http://j0hn-lenn0n.tumblr.com/.....-dare-they to his facebook, and deleted it soon after. (Ignore the tumblr vulgarities…only place I could find a screen shot of the quote.) I can't believe Paul just wouldn't invite him at all…or that he hasn't been invited to any of the recent events. On the other hand, maybe this is something that should be taken care of in private?? IDK…I'd be pretty pissed, too. Does anyone know if Paul and Julian ever got in a tiff over Julian recording When I'm 64 for that insurance commercial? All I know is there has to be some tension there for Paul to not even invite him…there may need to be some apologizing going on.

Thoughts?

Edit: To put things in perspective a bit...I've read some things elsewhere that make sense. None of the Beatle kids were invited to the Love premiere or George's doc. thing. Sean and Dhani were at the Love thing as escorts for their mothers, who are shareholders in The Beatles business interests. Stella wasn't there...Zak Starkey wasn't there, etc. Sean was, once again, at the George thing as Yoko's escort. I bet they were just escorts at Paul's receptions, too. Someone likened Paul and Julian's relationship to that of an uncle and nephew who don't have much contact after they get older. Like this person said, we all wish they were really close, but in reality, they probably aren't in contact a whole lot. It was a little insensitive not to invite him to the wedding, but I don't think it was a deliberate snub. After all, none of Ringo's kids were there. Does anyone know if Pattie was at the reception?

Julian can (nay, should) shut up. Oh no, he wasn't invited to his father's ex-bandmate's wedding. I HAD respect for Julian, insofar as he rarely played the Lennon card, but this reeks of pompous stupidity. I wonder how drunk he was… and who took it down. I hate when the sons of the famous act like that means they ought to be famous, and frankly, that's how Julian is acting.

Wow. Now that's some reaction. Not something I'd expect from Julian. I thought he was invited to the wedding, but since I was banned from his Facebook page, who knows? LOL!!

 

And being son of John he had to inherit some of his jerkness didn't he? a-hard-days-night-john-7

 

Edit : Now playing devil's advocate, I can't blame him for feeling he and his Mom are being erased of John's history thanks to Yoko. But honestly, Paul can invite whoever he wants to his wedding.

Mith, why were you banned? What did you DO???

Oi...Paul's forum is strict as hell. There were some posts about it there, and they were summarily removed by moderators.

I had Julian's page as "Like" in my Facebook acccount. Well one day I set his Facebook profile photo as my Facebook profile photo, (sometimes I have a Beatle, or my dogs, or whatever, never my pic) and hell broke : Some girls asked me why I did it, (I wasn't aware that Julian asked not to do that) so I changed it to a U2's photo and wrote "I hope nobody confuses me with U2" and dang. I was off. brian-epstein

 

I was chatting with a friend and I told her the whole deal (I was laughing) and she told me "Oh oh check again if you are accepted". I went to his page, I did it and I was accepted. But inmediatly after I clicked "Unlike" again.

 

I mean, I like his music, but honestly, I'm not going to die if he doesn't want me on his Facebook page, his fans can be VERY annoying and I can get his news in google. And honestly, I don't use Facebook that much for "giggling" over a singer. I have this board to do it so. a-hard-days-night-george-10

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Thank you SunKing apple01

 

I really like Julian Lennon's music, and I think he's kind of hot. And he can rant all he wants about not being invited to this or that event, bla bla bla.

 

But I get annoyed by his fans who are "more papist than the Pope". Yes, I get that many people pretend to be Julian Lennon on facebook, that's why he doesn't want his profile pic to be used as a profile pic by his fans. I get it. But the way his fans reacted was very uncalled for. I felt like in high school again. That's why I decided not to join again, not because I was kicked off, because a few of his fans act like if Julian needed to be protected from the all horrible criticism that's out there. Yes, he was treated by shit by his father but there are worst cases.

I couldnt care less if Julian was or wasnt invited to any of the events. Paul invited who he wanted to the wedding, but maybe it did come down to if you invite one beatle sibling you have to invite all the rest. If Yoko has the option of which of Johns son's to take i bet she would take Sean every time, he just happens to be her son and i dont think Yoko and Julian ever really got on that well anyway. It certainly wouldnt surprise me.

Expect it to be written up as a major earth-shattering event in some newspaper or internet column.

 

As for the Julian fans, every group/artist have 'fans' who are incapable of having a) a sense of humour, b) the capacity to accept any non-positive comments being written without insults and foul language, and c) the ability to remain friendly if you break any of the unwritten rules they have invented. Some supposed beatle fans cannot cope with the idea that some people dont like their music.

You mean there are some Beatles fans who can cope with that idea? I can't believe that, surely nobody can stand criticism of a timelessband who influenced so many other bands? There must be at least one song they consider sacred?

Actually I know a lot of Beatles trolls. They just hate them.

 

Why? For many reasons : Their parents were big fans, they were forced to hear Beatles all day, or they just have bad taste. I know someone who hates them and always tells me jokes about them to make me angry. I just reply "No matter what you say, The Beatles are the Beatles"

Going on the basis you are full of sarcasm, if people don't like them, it's their loss. Why should I give a rats ass what they think?

Yes, i'm 1 of them.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and i am certainly not going to a) argue the matter with people who are absolutely convinced the beatles are beyond crap or b) try and influence them. It would be naive and a waste of time to do so.

There have been many very heated, to put it mildly, debates between beatles and non beatles fans in regards to how good the beatles are. Its not that just they have grown up with them constantly being played but also due to the love and adulation heaped upon them, it causes deep resentment. And to see people who claim the beatles are their favourite band abuse and ridicule those who dont is horrible. So much for peace and love. 

John Lennon said that people have the right not to like the Beatles and the Beatles have the right to have nothing to do with them.

I'm with Sun king on this one.

Also, regarding Beatles trolls: It bothers me, but I don't post "the Beatles are the Best Band Ever and you're a DB if you disagree" rants anymore.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I was indeed not being serious, I was impersonating people who see the Beatles as above criticsm (not sure whether sarcasm is the right word, but hey).

You got it right, Walrus - I can totally understand how 40+ years of "The Beatles are above criticism" combined with all that other accumulated baggage could turn mere bemused indifference into hatred.

 

But really, what's up Julian's ass? Who expects to get invited to the wedding of their late father's former co-worker, for chrissakes, when they last worked together over 40 years ago??  Personally, I consider it a chore to attend weddings and know many people agree with me!

Its not like Julian would be looking for publicity.

Oh wait he's just put an album out and is currently on a promotion push to sell it.
