I’ve started a record label called Chimera Music. I debuted some new tracks on Mark Ronson’s East Village Radio show tonight. You can check it out as a podcast if you want to hear my new band The GOASTT, Yuka Honda’s new band, If By Yes, and Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band ‘revisited.’
Much love to everyone, and Happy Holidays.

Sean Lennon spoke with AOL Music about how his original desire in music was to start a band with Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain. “When I was young, I was obsessed with Nirvana,” Lennon explained. “I was really naïve, and I was starting a band, and Nirvana had just [broken up]. I had written a letter to Dave Grohl with a demo of my stuff, ’cause I wanted to start a band with him. He actually wrote me back [and said], ‘My girlfriend and I listen to your demo all the time, and we love it, but sorry — I’m starting this band called the Foo Fighters.’ I’m like, ‘Really? Sounds like a good name. Maybe that’ll be a good band.'”

The Sun’s Something For The Week spoke with Sean Lennon about his new album ‘Friendly Fire’, which is a sophomore release eight years in the making following his ‘Into The Sun’ debut in 1998. Asked why he left such a gap between efforts, the son of the late Beatles legend John Lennon responded, “The album just happened organically. It’s not that I was avoiding. I was doing other things. The thing is, I’m not always sure I want a pop music career. A lot of the last few years I didn’t feel I wanted one.” Read more.

Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com weighed in on Sean Lennon’s new album ‘Friendly Fire’, which hits stores in late September. Friedman writes, “It’s no surprise that ‘Friendly Fire’ sounds not only a lot like the father’s work, but like Julian’s too. Sean has the mixed blessing of a voice that combines both his parents, hence the little extra nasal sound when his mom’s genetics come through.”

News of the World’s Rav Singh reported on the Michael Jackson show saying, “Only the appearance of Britney Spears stopped the whole thing resembling a complete freak show.”
Rav reports Michael and Britney performed her new hit I’m A Slave 4 U together on stage… He must be mistaken though as all other reports have them singing “The Way You Make Me Feel”.

Mixed Reaction On Jacko Show, Brando Bashed
September 8, 2001 – The New York Post is profiling the Michael Jackson show last night that was marred by angry fans having to wait 3 1/2 hours for Jackson to perform and an odd appearance by Marlon Brando.

Hundreds more were beaten.” When the crowd then began buzzing after his comments, Brandy blasted, “Don’t chat! Think about what I’m saying. It could be you!” At that point the crowd booed demanding music.
