Tonight's the Night

July 2, 1962

Given the length of a normal human pregnancy, Julian Lennon is conceived on or about this date in Beatle history.  I know there are conflicting stories, but his birth date (April 8th) is known and the typical gestation period (40 weeks) is also well documented, so there it is.  Take it or leave it.

It was rather ungenerous of John to say later that Julian was "born out of a whiskey bottle on a Saturday night."  That comment may have had more to do with John's complicated self-image than the reality of the situation.  John is always a welcome visitor to Miss Powell's "bedsit" room (rented sleeping room with shared bath).  One picture is worth a thousand words...
