Sean Lennon Gets Psychedelic as America Unravels
by Adam Perry for Denver Westword 8/13/2019
Although Sean Lennon has kept a relatively low profile throughout his life — particularly for the son of John Lennon, one of the most famous musicians of the twentieth century — he’s actually had a prolific and interesting musical career, with two solo albums, numerous original soundtracks and collaborations with everyone from the Flaming Lips to Lady Gaga.
Now Lennon is two full-length albums deep into his venture with Primus bassist-singer Les Claypool, playing haunting, fantastical rock music not unlike that of early King Crimson and Pink Floyd. On the group’s two ambitious albums, Lennon has revealed his underrated musicianship by playing guitar, drums and numerous other instruments while sharing lead-vocal duties.
The Claypool Lennon Delirium plays Mishawaka Amphitheatre, the Ogden Theatre and the Boulder Theater this weekend; Lennon spoke with us by phone before a show in Charlottesville, Virginia.
