In this week’s episode of SPIN Presents Lipps Service, host Scott Lipps sat down with Julian Lennon. In their conversation, Lennon told Lipps about his lengthy career, growing up Lennon and his new NFT collection. He also reflected on how AC/DC and Steely Dan influenced his music career and his take on the Get Back documentary.

Since it began in 2018, the acclaimed podcast has featured many of the biggest voices and personalities in music, including exclusive interviews with Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis, David Lee Roth, Shepard Fairey, Courtney Love, Dove Cameron, Mick Fleetwood, Nikki Sixx, Perry Farrell and many, many more.

On the previous episode, Lipps spoke with Korn singer Jonathan Davis. In their conversation, Lipps and Davis discussed Korn’s return to touring after COVID, the band’s new album Requiem and his memories of Woodstock 99. Additionally, Davis described battling long COVID. “I’m still fatigued like crazy,” Davis said. “I’m doing the best I can. But I’m alive. And hopefully, in time, this will get better.”

Davis also didn’t rule out that bassist Fieldy may be back with the band sometime soon. He told Lipps that Fieldy needed some time off and “when he’s ready, he’ll be ready.”
