John Lennon’s son Julian meets his late father’s Beatles bandmate, Sir Paul McCartney, at the airport

John Lennon’s son Julian took to Twitter on Saturday after meeting his late father’s Beatles bandmate, Sir Paul McCartney, in an airport lounge.

The 59-year-old musician grinned while posing for a black and white selfie with the 80-year-old, who revealed he was listening to a track by John on his Spotify.

Julian wrote in his caption: “It’s amazing who you meet in an airport lounge! None other than Uncle Paul…. So, so nice, and what are the chances… Grateful…. ❤️.’

Earlier this year, Julian opened up about how difficult it was watching his father’s posthumous performance at Glastonbury with former bandmate Sir Paul.

John was brought back to life through the magic of video and artificial intelligence to perform a duet on the 1969 track “I’ve Got A Feeling” alongside Sir Paul, who delivered a stunning three-hour set at the summer festival in June.

The riveting stunt was the brainchild of Beatles documentary filmmaker Peter Jackson, who used machine learning technology to isolate Lennon’s vocals from decades-old recordings and arrange them to create a facsimile of a live performance.

“I watched it on YouTube — and I kind of thought, ‘Errrr . . . I don’t know if I’m happy with that.” It shocked me,” his son told Mojo magazine.

Julian, whose mother was Lennon’s first wife Cynthia, was 17 when his father was shot dead in December 1980.

He added that it was initially tough watching his late father “bring to life” to perform with his old Beatles bandmate – a stunt Macca first performed during the opening concert of his world tour in the US performed in April.

Julian couldn’t bring himself to watch the first performance as he wasn’t sure how he would take it when he saw video of his dead father being projected onto a giant screen as he recorded an eerily accurate portrayal hear his soft, melodious voice.

But after two months since the US concert when Glasto rolled around in late June, Julian decided to bite the bullet and catch Sir Paul’s performance in the English countryside.

“I really enjoyed it,” he said after realizing he’d finally made peace with the concept of seeing his dad play on a big screen.

Sir Paul became the oldest headliner at the Worthy Farm Festival when he played a week after his 80th birthday.

His mammoth set included performances with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen, as well as the Lennon duet, which wowed sold-out crowds.

Jackson, who directed The Lord of the Rings, meanwhile discussed how he was able to use modern technology to make Lennon’s posthumous performance possible – though he was reluctant to share much of the information.

“We built a machine learning system that we taught what a guitar sounds like, what a bass sounds like, what a voice sounds like,” said the New Zealander.

“In fact, we taught the computer what John sounds like and what Paul sounds like.”

Jackson is believed to have used the same techniques and bespoke artificial intelligence to produce the documentary Get Back about the Beatles, separating background noise, instruments and speech from the original mono recordings to allow editors to do otherwise using unusable footage.

After the heartwarming duet in Glastonbury, which was well received by fans, Sir Paul admitted: “This is very special to me. I know it’s virtual. I’m singing with John again, we’re together again.’
