Day & Night: I don't want to work with Macca - Lennon
JOHN LENNON'S son Julian has ruled out any musical partnership with his late father's songwriting partner Sir Paul McCartney as he feels there would be too much pressure to come up with a Beatles sequel.

Julian Lennon has ruled out any musical partnership with Sir Paul McCartney
"They (The Beatles) did it well enough," Julian, whose hits include Too Late For Goodbyes, tells Access Hollywood Live. "I would never even encroach on that in any way at all."
However, Julian recently confirmed that he would be working musically for the first time with his half brother Sean, 41, by John's second marriage - to Yoko Ono - but not on any Beatles songs.
Sir Paul penned The Beatles hit Hey Jude as an ode to Julian when John's first marriage to Julian's late mother Cynthia broke up.
And despite not getting an invite to the 74-year-old's third wedding, to Nancy Shevell in 2011, Julian says he and Sir Paul are friendly but there's no chance they will work together in the studio or on stage.
"We have a cup of tea if we're in the same city," he adds. "But the pressure on that front is a bit ridiculous. I think it's easier left alone."
