Father John Lennon kept a jukebox full of classic 45-rpm singles for Sean in his playroom, wanting him to always have a musical environment. He kept no memorabilia or records from The Beatles around the house, though, and Sean only learned of John's former life when he saw Yellow Submarine (1968) at his babysitter's. John later gave Sean one Beatles single (title unknown), to satisfy his curiosity.
Frequently spent time with his mother's side of the family (the Onos and the Yasudas) when they visited Japan or relatives visited them in New York. He had little contact with his father's side, though, until Yoko took him to the British Isles in the 1980s, to meet the surviving Lennons and Stanleys (John's mother's family), and to see Liverpool, where John grew up.

Making films is great. You've got 100 people around and you're all dressing up and making weird art-it's a fun group activity.
There's no single movement out there. It's not like in the '60s, when Revolver came out and that's just it for the next year.
Putting out commercial pieces and promoting them and trying to sell them to people is not necessarily what it means to be an artist.
It's a bit embarrassing watching myself, but I couldn't get someone else to play me, that would've been stupid.
Songwriting is kind of like a craft. It's not something that just comes in a dream. You've got to work at it.
My tendency is to be very experimental.
I like songs and film because you can turn your life into a sort of myth or dream.
Now, music almost feels naked in my mind.
I like music because it's the only invisible art form.
I spend my time trying to figure art out. I was brought up to believe that the way one processes information is by making it into art. That's how I live my life.
I'm lucky that a lot of my friends are in the entertainment industry.
I like to have books around to give me ideas-to get the verbal part of my brain to start working.
I did a record with a producer, and the good producers eat up the budget, so I didn't have any budget left to produce this record. I had to produce it myself.
The work I've done, I'm really feeling the effects of it.
For me, songwriting is something I have to do ritually. I don't just wait for inspiration; I try to write a little bit every day.
I have a piano and a guitar, and I tend to switch back and forth between those two instruments to help me get inspired.
I feel that film is inevitably the medium of the future. It has been for years, decades, but more so now than ever.
I feel like I've been way overexposed in the press. I'd rather play shows and represent myself in person.
Growing up, I fantasized about being a rock musician and that somehow it would be really easy. I didn't realize that it's so much work.
I like songs that have lots of different parts in them, an intro, an outro and a bridge.
I'm not trying to overcome my father or fill his shoes or reach any kind of level that he did. We're talking about a Mozart of rock music.
I try not to do anything by formula.
I like songs that go to different places and then come back.
I'm not that in control of myself that I could be specific about exactly the way I'm doing everything as it happens. I'm just trying my best.
There are only really a few stories to tell in the end, and betrayal and the failure of love is one of those good stories to tell.
I'm trying to use the language of today to express a general existential crisis that I think the world and I are going through.
We live in a pretty bleak time. I feel that in the air. Everything is uncertain. Everything feels like its on the precipice of some major transformation, whether we like it or not.
The most important thing in my father's life? World peace. Me and my brother. My mom.
Being famous is having the power to really implement positive change in the world, and it gives you the power to do what you want. I'm really grateful for it because I can play music and people will listen.
I feel like part of me is very strange- a real weirdo. That's probably the artistic side. I think I have another side that's more integrated and sociable. There's a sort of battle between my anti-social and my social personalities.
[on being compared to his father] I'm so used to it. I'm more taken aback when I'm asked something that isn't about my dad. That's when I get really surprised. I mean, my whole life has been responding to questions about him. It doesn't bother me at all. It's beyond being bothered. You can't be bothered by, you know, wind.
"Peace is a good thing, and so is salmon when it's smoked." (1983)
