“They wouldn’t hold you,” he instructed Rolling Stone. “They wouldn’t say they loved you.”
John admitted he was “afraid” of his father, who died in 1991 with out ever seeing him carry out reside. “I was walking on eggshells the whole time trying to get his approval. He’s been dead for a long time, and I’m still trying to prove things to him. I still do things and say, ‘Dad, you would’ve loved this.’” The eight-time Grammy Award winner stated he’s nonetheless scarred from being crushed by his father as a baby. “My mum always says, ‘That’s just the way we did it in those days, and it didn’t affect you,’” he stated. “And I’d say, ‘What are you talking about? It affects me every day.’”
