By William Goodman , SPIN Since the early ’60s, Yoko Ono has been a renegade in the avant-garde art world with her conceptual approach to music, film, art, and politics. Then there’s John Lennon. In the late Beatle, whom she met in 1966 and married in ’69, she found her artistic soul mate — two people, one [...]

Yoko Ono is one of the most polarizing figures in rock ‘n’ roll history. The people that love her LOVE her and the people who don’t love her never will. Aside from being married to John Lennon, she also created the blueprint for avant-punk and electronic music, and remixes of her songs have been regularly charting in the top ten of Billboard’s dance music chart for the last decade. Ono has an amazing new CD, Between My Head and the Sky, that continues her artistic progression and has to be the greatest rock record ever recorded by a 76-year-old.
On the evening of 18 February 2010, The City of Reykjavik was proud to illuminate IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in honor and celebration of Yoko Ono’s 77th birthday. You can Twitter your birthday messages for Yoko to @yokoono or write them in the comments on this web page, where you can read all the comments and Tweets from friends and fans. You can also Twitter your own personal wishes for peace to IMAGINE PEACE TOWER @IPTower or via email to email@example.com.
