Sister of legendary The Beatles singer John Lennon, Julia Baird spoke in an interview with Sputnik News, and talked about The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.
“Do you think there will ever be a band bigger than the Beatles?”
“It’s hard to say, because who would’ve thought the Beatles would’ve come? Before the Beatles it was individuals, wasn’t it? It was Frank Sinatra, he was the world’s megastar, wasn’t he? Then, of course, there was Elvis, and you’re still in single people, the Beatles was the introduction of the group.
A group of people behaving as one person. This had never happened before had it? Unless you had a whole orchestra, but those orchestras aren’t stars are they? They are performing shows like the Beatles, but you don’t go to a Tchaikovsky concern and scream all the way through it, do you? It was a complete change.
We never envisaged that ever so we really can’t see what’s coming next can we? If you said in the next ten years, I’d say probably not, if you said in the next twenty years I’d say very unlikely, when you say one hundred years, who knows?”
“How do you feel John’s music career would have progressed had he lived to the present day?”
“I really don’t know, but I think with the starting over, if you take the words from if you go back slightly.
One of my favourites at the moment is watching the wheels, so he’s having his break, Sean’s coming to school time, and he’s obviously whipped up a fantasy that they’re going back into the studio, and the very title starting over suggests to me, and another one stepping out, that he was about to step out back into the musical world, maybe the writing world, maybe the art world.”
