Pictured here is John Lennon and his son Julian Lennon. Julian was John’s son with his first wife, Cynthia. After his father ran off with Yoko and had another child, Julian’s relationship with his father quickly diminished.

Now fully grown, Julian speaks freely about his feelings for Lennon, "I have to say that, from my point of view, I felt he was a hypocrite. Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces - no communication, adultery, divorce? You can't-do it, not if you're being true and honest with yourself."

If these walls could talk they’d probably have some eye bulging, jaw-dropping conversations to share. The music industry's top innovative superstars of the time are here partying with standup comedian "Sam" Kinison, who was known for his intensely harsh sense of humor.

According to Billy Idol’s biography Dancing With Myself, this photo was taken after the HBO Young Comedian Special back in 1984. According to Idol, this was the evening that spawned his friendship with Sam. Idol pointed out that at this time, Sam was heavily into coke and “was beginning to act more like a rockstar than a comedian.” No doubt this was a crazy night for all of them.
