After Stuart’s death, John and George used to come and see me in my home. It was actually John’s suggestion. John said, “Can I see where he used to paint?” I said, “Of course, you can.” In that moment, I had to take a picture of them and I just grabbed this old chair and put it there. John was just full of emotion being in the same room where his friend was just painting that he nearly burst out in tears. And George was a bit worried, so I just said to George, “Stand behind him.” You could see how quickly George understood what it was all about: death and being alive. He’d only just turned eighteen and when you look at the picture and see his eyes, they’re so full of protection for John. - Astrid Kirchherr

Today in Beatles History: April 11

1963

John Lennon sees Julian for the first time.

"John didn’t make it to the hospital until three days after our son was born – the first opportunity he’d had to get away from the tour. He came in like a whirlwind, racing through the doors in his haste to find us. He kissed me, then looked at his son, who was in my arms. There were tears in his eyes: “Cyn, he’s bloody marvellous! He’s fantastic.” He sat on the bed and I put the baby into his arms. He held each tiny hand, marvelling at the miniature fingers, and a big smile spread over his face. “Who’s going to be a famous little rocker like his dad, then?” he said."
