Sean Lennon talks neo psychedelic band, challenge of being seen as more than a son of a Beatle
You produced the most recent album by Yoko Ono, your mother. She seems to be everywhere these days Shes really active on Twitter, doing music videos, popping up here and there for live shows. Do you feel any sense of validation that she is being so embraced by a younger generation?
I think time sort of gives us perspective on artists and people and philosophies that maybe we werent ready to receive as a society or as a culture at the moment when they happening. And when we review history, sometimes we re-understand things in new ways and were more ready for them. And I think my mom was ahead of her time. And also her relationship to my dad made it harder for people to perceive her because she cast a big shadow, but also they resented her because of how they perceived her and her relationship to the breakup of the Beatles and that colored their ability to perceive her for who she was, on top of the fact that her art was very radical and provocative and was already making people uncomfortable to begin with, which was the point. So all of these things together created a confluence of misunderstanding. And those kinds of misunderstandings unravel with time.
