Rock Talk With Carter: The Day John Lennon Finally Spoke Up

by Alisha Jackson

They may have spanned sixteen years, but on this day in rock music history, two major Beatles events took place.

In 1980, John Lennon ended a 5-year self-imposed silence from the music business when he granted an interview to Newsweek magazine. And in 1996, Lennon’s son Julian was the anonymous buyer who purchased Paul McCartney’s handwritten recording notes for “Hey Jude.” That song was written for Julian when John Lennon separated from Cynthia Lennon in 1968.
