Julian Lennon is doing a book tour for the third in a series of children’s books. The latest title, Love the Earth, written with Bart Davis and illustrated by Smiljana Coh, was published on April 22 (via Skyhorse Publishing). The singer-songwriter, musician, philanthropist and photographer [check out his Instagram account] did a Q-and-A with radio legend Dennis Elsas at a New York City Barnes & Noble on April 22 and then joined Elsas (and his Fab Fourum co-hosts Bill Flanagan and Tom Frangione) for a wide-ranging April 24 interview on SiriusXM’s Beatles Channel.
The son of John and Cynthia Lennon turned 56 on April 8. In 1984, at just 21, he released his debut album, Valotte, which yielded two hit singles, the title track and “Too Late For Goodbyes.” Both songs were Top 10 singles on the Hot 100. With the still-maturing performer suddenly omnipresent, the public were amazed at how much he resembled his father in looks and voice.
