Julian Lennon, blessed with one of the most famous last names in rock, is set to release his first new music in 13 years. His album Everything Changes will be released Oct. 3 and here’s the first single from it, “Lookin’ 4 Luv.” Get past the goofy spelling in the title and the cheesy video effects, and you have a rather haunting first image as Julian peers into TV programs that includes his famous father and stepmother back in the day.

Lucy In the Sky

"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" from the movie 'Yellow Submarine'

Lucy O’Donnell, the woman who inspired the classic Beatles song “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” has died at age 46.  Julian Lennon was four years old when he drew a picture of his classmate Lucy.  He took the drawing home and showed it to his dad, saying “This is Lucy in the sky with diamonds.”   John Lennon’s song appeared on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967.  For many years she kept her connection to the Beatles secret because she often heard the song was really about LSD – and it may well could have been.  But the song, like most of the magic created by the Beatles, had a very simple and real inspiration from everyday life.
