Sean Lennon Honors John Lennon’s 80th Birthday For ‘Colbert’
Sean Lennon honored his father John Lennon on what would have been the icon’s 80th birthday. Sean Ono Lennon performed “Isolation” for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’s #PlayAtHome video series.
“Isolation” appears on 1970’s Plastic Ono Band, John Lennon’s solo debut LP. The song is still very relevant, especially in 2020, and Sean shared his thoughts and a call to action in the notes accompanying the video:
Hey guys, here’s my version of ‘ISOLATION’, with me on drums and my nephew Jack on bass. Crazy how much the lyrics fit our current year. Please upload a cover of your favorite John Lennon song, put #GIMMESOMETRUTH and #LENNON80 and tag my dad @johnlennon (on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok) to help celebrate his 80th birthday. We need his music and his message now more than ever!’
