John Lennon had sweet news for his first son Julian Lennon — and it stayed with his ex-wife Cynthia Lennon. Here’s what she wrote in her memoir about white feathers and the former Beatles member.

He was a world leading musician and father of Julian Lennon. After marrying Yoko Ono, John Lennon became the father of Sean Taro Ono Lennon.

However, through his first marriage to Cynthia Lennon (then Cynthia Lennon), John Lennon had his first son. Much of John Lennon’s relationship with his children was detailed in Cynthia Lennon’s 2005 memoir.

In her memoirs John, Cynthia Lennon described sentimental moments between her son and the Beatles member. She explained that “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” was inspired by one of Julian Lennon’s drawings.

After the divorce, Cynthia, John and Julian Lennon went to Disneyland. There was even a moment when John Lennon told his son to keep an eye out for white feathers after he died.

“It was also in a moment of emotion, but maybe also of tenderness and love, that John once said to Julian, ‘If anything ever happens to me, look for a white feather and you’ll know I’m there, watching for you,'” she wrote. “I think of John every time I see a white feather.”

After his split from Cynthia Lennon, John Lennon and Yoko Ono moved to New York City. The former Beatles songwriter was shot dead there in 1980. Yoko Ono offered to fly Julian Lennon to Manhattan. He appeared at the memorial service and later received his father’s guitar as a gift.

Though there were moments of “vibes,” Julian Lennon later shared that he didn’t have the best relationship with his dad. For the John Foreword, the musician said that John Lennon often ignored his first family.

“Dad was a great talent, a remarkable man who stood up for peace and love in the world,” wrote Julian Lennon. “But at the same time, he found it very difficult to show peace and love to his first family — my mother and I.”

Even when John and Cynthia Lennon were still together, Cynthia Lennon wrote that her husband’s moods could be “unpredictable.” She recalled a moment when John Lennon yelled at 3-year-old Julian for messy eating.

Even in a letter to Cynthia Lennon, John Lennon wrote that feeling like a “real father” is a “slow process”.

“I spend hours in dressing rooms thinking about the times I’ve wasted without being with him – and playing with him – you know, I keep thinking about those stupid bastard times where I was constantly freaking out newspapers and read other shit he’s in the room with me and I’ve decided it’s all wrong,” he mused.
