John Kennedy (cellist)

John Kennedy was a noted Australian cellist, and the natural father of the violinist Nigel Kennedy.

His parents were the cellist Lauri Kennedy and the pianist Dorothy Kennedy. In 1926 he supported Eileen Joyce on her tour of Western Australia before she left to study in Leipizig. At age 24 he became first cello with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, making him the youngest principal in Great Britain. He joined the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in 1949, as principal, where he performed as soloist in such works as the Elgar Cello Concerto under Otto Klemperer.

He taught at the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music for two years and appeared in concerts for Musica Viva Australia. In 1952 he toured New Zealand as part of the Llewellyn-Kennedy Piano Trio (with the violinist Ernest Llewellyn and the pianist Scylla Stoner - who was billed as "Scylla Kennedy" although she and John never married).

He returned to the UK, where he was principal cello at Covent Garden. He later became the principal cellist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Thomas Beecham. He was the first person to perform a cello concerto at the Edinburgh Festival.

He returned to Australia as senior cello lecturer at the University of Melbourne Conservatorium. When he left the UK, he ended his romantic association with the pianist and teacher Scylla Stoner. He was not aware at the time that Scylla was pregnant to him, and had no idea for many years that she later gave birth to his son, who was to become famous as the violinist Nigel Kennedy (born 28 December 1956). His mother wanted Nigel taught a string instrument but chose the violin because she did not want a cello in the house as a reminder of John Kennedy. John and Nigel Kennedy did not meet until Nigel was 11. John married in Australia, to the soprano Joan Dargavel, and had more children (Nigel’s half-siblings), including the violinist Debbie Kennedy.

John Kennedy became an alcoholic and died of liver failure in the mid-1980s.

John Kennedy's Love Gone Wrong

John Kennedy's Love Gone Wrong is perhaps the best known band fronted by Australian singer-songwriter John Kennedy.

John Kennedy's Love Gone Wrong recorded some of the great pop songs about Sydney; two immortal classics which deserve particular mention are "Miracle (in Marrickville)" and "King Street" (ie: King Street in Newtown) Those songs, released on the influential Waterfront Records and Red Eye Records labels, performed well on the independent charts but deserved mainstream chart action and the band itself clearly deserved major label attention. Their songs remain absolute classics of the Australian city pop genre.

John Kennedy (Scottish footballer)

John Kennedy (born 18 August 1983 in Bellshill) is a Scottish professional football player currently playing for Celtic. He is a defender and is also a Scotland international. Kennedy is the grandson of Celtic and Manchester United player, Jimmy Delaney, but he is not related to John Kennedy, a midfielder who played for Celtic in the 1960s. Kennedy is currently Celtic's joint longest serving player along with captain Stephen McManus, with 8 years at the club.

Kennedy came through Celtic's youth system and signed a professional contract on the same day as fellow defender Stephen McManus. He made his first-team debut during the 1999/00 season but it wasn't until the 2003/04 season that he really made his name. He had a run in the Celtic starting eleven and came under scrutiny from scouts of AC Milan who contacted Celtic about making a move.

He suffered a serious knee ligament injury on his international debut against Romania in March 2004, when Romanian striker Ionel Ganea made a disgusting challenge on him, which kept him out of the first team for three years, effectively ruining the promising young players career in professional football. The SFA agreed to compensate the club with respect to the player's wages following his injury. In late 2006 Kennedy resumed training and was named as a substitute for Celtic's Champions League match against A.C. Milan on 20 February 2007.

He started his comeback against Kilmarnock on 22 April 2007, helping Celtic clinch the title. He played the full 90 minutes, but Shunsuke Nakamura stole the headlines, scoring in the final minute with a free-kick. Four days later, on 26 April, he signed a new three-year contract with the club.

On 28 November the same year, however, playing in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk, he was stretchered off after twisting his knee landing after an aerial challenge. The initial diagnosis was that he sustained damage to his lateral meniscus and the posterior lateral complex of the same knee he'd previously injured, ruling him out for up to 3 months.

On 14 July 2008, it was rumoured that Kennedy had joined Motherwell on a six month loan deal ending in December, though this was quashed by Celtic later the same day. He did, however, meet up with the Motherwell squad in Austria, on trial. However it was rumoured that Kennedy was in talks with Norwich City and Preston North End over a possible loan move.

On 27 July 2008, it was confirmed that Kennedy would be joining Norwich City on loan until January. He made his Norwich debut in a 2–0 defeat to Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena on 9 August 2008. Kennedy scored his first Norwich goal in the 3–1 defeat at Derby County on 28 October 2008. Kennedy returned to Celtic after further damaging his troubled knee in December 2008.
