The MOJO Interview: Sean Lennon

Alan Light, MOJO, July 2016

"IT'S STILL NEW YORK!" says Sean Lennon with a laugh as a voice suddenly starts hollering in Spanish on the sidewalk directly in front of his ground-floor SoHo rehearsal space. On a sunny Sunday morning, Lennon is the perfect host, setting out cheese and nuts, worrying over coffee options, and dressed more for a stage than for a day indoors, in vintage shades of brown (jacket, striped shirt, patterned pants) and a wide-brimmed hat festooned with a red feather. (Meantime, I've walked by the odd, two-storey building hundreds of times without ever noticing it, much less knowing that it had once belonged to John Lennon and Yoko Ono.)
