LATEST: John Lennon's son JULIAN has hit out at his stepmother Yoko Ono for objecting to a singer/songwriter for naming her band LENNON. Ono, 74, has tried to prevent rocker Lennon Murphy from gaining the exclusive rights to use the name Lennon for performance purposes by notifying the United States Patent and Trademark Office. But Julian - the late Beatle's son from his first marriage to Cynthia Lennon - sympathises with Murphy and has publicly stated his backing for the rising star. He says, "I feel for her and know the situation well. She has my full support."
