Relationships between a father and his child - very fragile magic, a special harmony that can be achieved for years and broken in an instant! However, there are also such fathers who do not even seek to find a point of contact with their child. And the music industry knows a lot of such examples ... Perhaps, years later, these men will sincerely regret about the lost, but when their child was just beginning to learn this huge and unpredictable world, they didn’t care at all. Sometimes educational moments reach outright cruelty, and as adults, children curse such parents.

From the side it might seem that the iconic Beatle John Lennon Just the perfect father! He spent a lot of time with his son By Sean from a second marriage to Yoko Ono: played with him, threw the boy in the air and tickled him, walked, gave gifts ...

But he wasn't as caring towards his first son. Julian. Alas, Lennon was far from being an ideal father or husband, despite his impeccable image of an idol. By his own admission, he physically and verbally abused his first wife Cynthia, and was often cold and aloof with their common son Julian. When their marriage to Cynthia broke up, their communication with Julian ended ...

Many years later, after the tragic death of Lennon, Julian will say:

“I think he was a hypocrite. He could speak loudly about peace and love to millions of fans, but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a broken family? No communication, warmth or mutual understanding - only betrayal, rudeness, divorce. He was not the ideal he claimed to be…”

Paul McCartney wrote a ballad "Hey Jude"to cheer up Julian, who was depressed after John left them with his mother.

However, the father of John himself was just as cold and indifferent towards his son. Alf Lennon went to fight in World War II soon after John was born, and when he returned, he found his wife pregnant by another man. He made the decision to leave the family before putting 5 year old John before a choice: either he or his mother. The boy stayed with his mother and did not see his father until 23 years old… This, of course, was deeply imprinted in his memory.

Though Bob Marley promoted love and world peace to the masses, he was not a reverent father. Rather, his educational methods were based on rudeness. At least that's what his own kids say. They also recall that during games with them, their father turned on a tough competitive nature.

“He was not one of those fathers who will tell you: “Son, be careful!”. On the contrary, he raised us to be rude, you know?” said Ziggy Marley.

In one of his interviews Cedella Marley recalled:

“When I was a child, I complained to him that I was very sad, because I had no friends at all ... It really worried me, I was lonely. But he replied that I did not need friends, and that I would never think about them again ... "

It is worth adding that he Bean grew up without a father - the man left his family, and in the middle 50s died when the boy was 10 years.

Joseph Jackson founded The Jackson 5, however, in pursuit of fame, he tortured his sons, often resorting to physical and psychological violence ... Sometimes he forced them to drag cinder blocks from one end of the garden to the other for hours. Often a belt buckle and a cord from an electric kettle were used. The boys were not allowed to play outside with other children: they rehearsed for five hours every day after school.

“None of us remembers him hugging us, or saying that he loves us ...”, Jermaine Jackson later recalled.
