John Lennon said a star from the 1970s looked like Adolf Hitler playing a piano. John revealed what his son, Julian Lennon, thought of the star’s band. Subsequently, the celebrity in question received criticism for his appearance.
John Lennon’s son learned to play songs by Little Richard and The Beatles at school
The book Lennon about Lennon: Conversations with John Lennon includes an interview from 1975. He was asked about his relationship with his son, Julian Lennon. “I didn’t encourage him, but he already has a band at school,” John said.
But they sing Rock And Roll songs, because his teacher is my age,” he added. “This is how you teach them”Sally long and tall‘ and a couple of Beatles songs. He likes Barry White and he likes Gilbert O’Sullivan.”
John Lennon’s son was not a big fan of the celebrity who, according to John, looked like Adolf Hitler.
John elaborated on his son’s taste in music. “She likes Queen, although I haven’t heard them yet,” he said. “He turns me on with music. He calls him and he says: ‘Have you heard Queen?’ and I’m like ‘No, what is she?’ I have heard of them. I’ve seen the guy… the one who looks like Hitler playing the piano… Sparks?
“I have seen Sparks on American television,” he added. “So I call him up and say, ‘Have you seen Sparks? Hitler at the piano? and he says, ‘No. They’re fine. But have you seen Queen? and I say ‘What is Queen?’ and then she tells me Her age group is more into music…at 11 I was aware of music, but not too much.”
Sparks is an American band known primarily for their 1970s hits “Something For The Girl With Everything”, “This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both of Us”, and “The Number One Song in Heaven”. When John said that a band member looked like Hitler, he seemed to be referring to Sparks member Ron Mael. Mael wears a distinctive toothbrush mustache.
Sparks’ Ron Mael said he was trying to look like a famous movie star, not Adolf Hitler
During a 2021 interview with The Telegraph, Mael talked about his facial hair. She said she once sported a bushy mustache, but changed her look to look like silent film star Charlie Chaplin. She said that she wasn’t thinking of looking like the Nazi dictator when he took on his appearance.
Years later, the band got a contract on a French TV show. Eventually, they were banned from performing due to Mael’s mustache.
Sparks gave the world some popular tunes and a pitiful mustache style.
