John Lennon damaged son’s hearing: BiographySeptember 22nd, 2008 - 2:33 pm ICT by IANS
London, Sep 22 (IANS) A new book reveals that late Beatles legend John Lennon had a bad temper and once he screamed into his son Sean’s ear during an angry outburst, damaging the child’s hearing. Sean had to be taken to hospital to repair his damaged hearing. The book by Philip Norman is titled “John Lennon: The Life”.
Contactmusic.com quoted Sean from the book: “He was teaching me how to cut and eat steak, which was a mystery to me at four; how to stick the fork in and cut behind it, and that was how you got a piece in your mouth. I think it was that night when he got very upset with me, I think because of something I did very cheekily with the steak. He did wind up yelling at me very, very loudly to the point where he damaged my ear, and I had to go to the hospital.”
But Sean added that Lennon himself was upset with his own actions, adding: “I remember when I was lying on the floor and hurting, and him holding me and saying, ‘I’m so sorry. I have a temper’.”
