With a little help from his friends, Sean Lennon has updated his slain father's song "Give Peace a Chance" for release before next week's U.N. deadline in the Persian Gulf. The 15-year-old Lennon kept the song's chorus but wrote new verses pertinent to "a number of major issues of today," said spokesman Elliot Mintz. John Lennon released the song during the Vietnam War. Sean's mother, Yoko Ono, is on the new recording. So is rocker Lenny Kravitz.

Sean Lennon. His name appeared in small letters on the Roxy marquee Wednesday, beneath headlining act Buffalo Daughter, but for the packed throng, Sean Lennon was definitely the main attraction. "I'm only here to see Sean because he's John Lennon's son," said 17-year-old Emily Hansen of Eagle Rock, who confessed that she knew nothing about Sean Lennon other than his stellar pedigree.

If young Lennon is feeling the weight of his legacy, you can't tell from the relaxed, warm, playfully adventurous feeling of his formal debut. It's not burdened by any overarching need to prove himself. Instead, it's a friendly, sweet "hello," the start of what promises to be a long, rich relationship. That fits the overall theme of the record, where the word is love, seen in its first real flowering, yet surprisingly mature.

After a well-received return to the stage in New York this year, Yoko Ono is bringing her "We Are Plastic Ono Band" to L.A. for the first time. "I have never done a show in L.A., so I am very happy to be finally doing it," Ono says, speaking from her apartment at the Dakota in New York. Part concert and part tribute show to both Ono and the late John Lennon, who would have turned 70 on Oct. 9, the revived Plastic Ono Band includes Sean Lennon, who also acts as music director, and innovative Japanese artists Yuka Honda and Cornelius, as well as a floating roster of guest artists.

"They are so in love," Jerry Hall, Jagger's mother, is quoted as saying in recent British press reports cited in this week's issue of Time magazine.

Sean Lennon's launching a band--and he wants to do it quietly. The 19-year-old son of the late rock immortal John Lennon and Yoko Ono is fronting a group and is exploring ways to introduce his music without an inordinate amount of attention based simply on who he is. "He has elected on his own not to make a big media entrance," says Elliot Mintz, spokesman for the Lennon estate. "He wants to recede a bit in terms of what he is creating. It's not going to be a celebrity vanity trip.

POP/ROCK It's His Take: Though he has no proof, Sean Lennon apparently believes that the U.S. government may have been involved with his father's shooting death. In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, John Lennon's 22-year-old son says that anyone who believes convicted killer Mark Chapman was "just some crazy guy who killed my dad for his personal interests is insane, I think, or very naive, or hasn't thought about it clearly."

More Dude and hello, Dolly! That's one way of (imperfectly) trying to synopsize the 2011 season at the Hollywood Bowl, which will begin selling subscription series tickets Wednesday. (Single tickets go on sale May 7, when the Bowl's complete programming will be announced.) Country diva Dolly Parton will make her Bowl debut on July 22 (with a July 23 encore), bringing 45 years' worth of Nashville hits and, no doubt, some killer fashion ensembles with her. And Los Angeles Philharmonic music director Gustavo Dudamel (aka The Dude)

Because I've been a freelance book reviewer for an online company for the last 10 years, I got an invitation to a book debut party at Chateau Marmont that promised to be celebrity-studded. I love parties, especially ones that promise free hors d'oeuvres and booze. Also, this one was being promoted by a cosmetics company, so I figured there was a good chance there'd be gift bags. But to call me a wallflower would be kind. I'm more of a sink-into-the-floor flower.
