Washington (ANI): Musician John Lennon had a temper so volatile that his son Sean had to be rushed to hospital as a young boy to repair his damaged hearing, according to a new book. Sean Lennon remembers his dad in a postscript written in Philip Norman's new biography about the star, 'John Lennon: The Life'.

He claims his late father screamed into his ear during an angry outburst. "(He was) teaching me how to cut and eat steak, which was a mystery to me at age four; how to stick the fork in and cut behind it, and that was how you got a piece in your mouth," the New York Post quoted Sean, as saying.

"I think it was that night when he got very upset with me, I think because of something I did very cheekily with the steak. He did wind up yelling at me very, very loudly to the point where he damaged my ear, and I had to go to the hospital," he added.

However, the 32-year-old admits his father was mortified by his own actions. "I remember when I was lying on the floor and hurting, and him holding me and saying, 'I'm so sorry'. He did have a temper," he said.
