Julia by The Beatles

“Julia was Lennon´s mom. She gave him his first guitar. Although Lennon lived with his aunt, Julia came to see him daily. When she was 44 and Lennon was 17, she was killed near a bus stop by a police officer in a terrible accident. He was not drunk, He was not speeding. "Like everyone else I started reading in the papers about them and they were never off the TV. I read that John Lennon's mother was dead and that he used to live in Menlove Avenue. I put two and two together and realised that it was his mum that I had killed. Everything came back to me and I felt absolutely terrible. It had the most awful effect on me. The Beatles were everywhere, especially in Liverpool, and I couldn't get away from it." Eric Clague You always think of John and Julia and what a beautiful love song this is, but you never think of the driver, no? Terrible to have to live with that...”
