Whomever was responsible for ensuring Yoko's mic was turned off, I'm eternally grateful.

HERO tag for the person who left her unplugged ;)

I follow Yoko Ono on Twitter. She seems to fancy herself some sort of artist.

I know I'm expected to give a shiat about someone's birthday, but I'm not finding myself caring much. I must be old and cranky.

Either that, or too young to appreciate what Lennon meant to his generation.

so, when do we stop counting birthdays for people who are murdered? is there a cut off?

As an admirer of his work, I mourn his tragic end. I wonder if he would have got caught up in twittering etc...or God forbid a sex tape. Who would be on the receiving end of his hound dog? Is Ann Margaret still alive?

I don't hate Yoko. I saw the movie Let It Be...and she did nothing to suggest ending the Beatles as she usually gets blamed for..... However, I never got why John let her sing with him. It did ruin a lot of his material. Sure maybe he loved her, but it was a bad choice for the music. It is a bit true thought that of shades Yoko could be heard in some songs like Rock Lobster and other B 52 songs,... Novelty songs BTW, not serious art.

As one of the few people on earth who admit to appreciating a lot of what Yoko did (and still does), even I think she was out of place in these sort of Rock and Roll revival-type performances. Some Time in New York City- yes, Live Peace in Toronto 1969- no.
 
2012-10-09 09:51:23 AM
In the documentary Hail, Hail Rock and Roll! we see Chuck really lose his shiat because an audio technician adjusted his amp. I can't believe he would allow Yoko to warble like that during one of his legendary songs. Having said that, Yoko rocks.
 
2012-10-09 09:53:42 AM
Dammit, they cut it off right before Hiziki Egroll came on - I loved their first couple albums before their original frontman quit.

I had seen that one before, but not the Johnny B. Good video. It made me so happy to see that dumb coont try to pull that shiat a second time and her mic was turned off. There are so many great jam sessions she farked up with her screeching. Why couldn't John just tell her to STFU?

Re: the 'sex tape'.......he was sort of caught in something similar. In 1968, he and Yoko released and album of stuff they had recorded together, called "Two Virgins." John and Yoko were both completely naked on the cover. Caused quite a stir back then.

Listened to Double Fantasy the other day, you get hints that Lennon would have been great in the 80s and beyond, a bit like Bowie, able to adjust to the times without becoming cliched.

If he were alive today he wouldn't be churning out Hey Jude over and over at every national event.

She really didn't "do" anything to break up the Beatles....it was just her constant presence that was a huge sticking point among the four. She was a symptom rather than a cause.These guys had essentially been together since they were teenagers (Ringo came a bit later) and had gone through everything together. They toured together and recorded together with very little outside influence. Suddenly...Yoko was everywhere including their recording sessions. She would make unwanted suggestions on songs and music etc. And Paul, George, and Ringo couldn't say anything about it without pissing John off.

Think of it this way.....you've been with your 3 best friends since high school...done everything together and shared the experience of growing up....first drugs, first sex, relationship issues, etc. You had your own in-jokes and knew all of the same stories.Your very tight little group meets every week at the bar for beer, discussion and friendship. One week, one of the friends shows up with a girlfriend. He continues to bring her every week, spends all of his time with her, refuses to go anywhere without her, and bristles at any suggestion that he leave her at home once in a while so they could hang out together and talk without her. Suddenly, the dynamic of your little group has changed, hasn't it?

That's confirmed by comments made by George, Ringo, and Paul on "The Beatles Anthology." I was surprised to learn from their interviews that even intrusions by George Martin were tolerated only if he had technical input. They considered studio time to be a "closed session" where they could bang out ideas and bounce things off each other. The other Beatles were married, yet they didn't bring their wives to the sessions. Suddenly, here's this outsider sitting there like some gnome, and it upset the chemistry that had worked so well previously.

Not to say that the Beatles, like any human relationship, wasn't already suffering from the usual pains and problems. But it's apparent that having Yoko around really tipped things over the edge.

If it wasn't Yoko it would've been someone else. It was John who met her, John who liked her, and John who brought her. If you look at the relationships after the Beatles broke up, it had little to do with Yoko. George and Ringo played on John's records. Paul made his own. John even talked shiat about the b side of Abbey Road. Paul talked shiat about Let it Be.

Brian Epstein was dead and the Beatles were in charge of The Beatles. That was the big one. That led Paul to try and fill his shoes, and everyone else to resent him trying to lead the band. Yoko was barely a factor.

It's very easy to make up your own imaginary version of someone who's dead. I'm sure if MLK was alive he'd be in his sixth term as world president thanks to Richard Nixon curing AIDS.

Yeah, you're right - I can just hear her saying "my precious!" as she clutches John's arm.

Is John's guitar unplugged as well? His solo sounds so faint it is like it is just being picked up by the vocal mic.
