By Amy McGrath, Reverb Yoko Ono has been a hero in my life since my early teenage years. She is a woman on the vanguard in so many ways — her avant-garde music has always been years ahead of its time, her conceptual art is full of quirky humor and simple beauty, and she has [...]

Saturday – The night was hot! The whole audience gave a standing ovation to Lady Gaga from the minute she appeared on the stage to when her turn was over. And that is saying a lot. That meant people were standing through the long, long songs – THE SUN IS DOWN and IT’S BEEN VERY HARD. It’s a record! At the end of IT’S BEEN VERY HARD, Lady Gaga started to play the piano with her high heel shoes, and I went up on the top of the piano and started jamming lying down. Right away, Lady Gaga climbed up on the piano right next to me, and two of us jammed, in tune, of course. I am sure the audience would never forget this night… You can say that two of us came from one clay…. yoko
To the Family of Peace,
On Hiroshima Day
Let’s: Think Peace, Act Peace, Spread Peace, and IMAGINE PEACE
- so there will be No more Hiroshima or Nagasaki!
Some people are thinking that IMAGINE PEACE is not working.
Well, look around and think how many things are coming out.
Without knowing the truth, we cannot create a truly peaceful world.
It is a blessing that truth is coming out.
Don’t let fear overcome you.
We are all together.
I love you.
Yoko Ono, New York City. Hiroshima Day: 6 August 2010.
Noise Pop 2010: Yoko Ono and Deerhoof at the Fox by Kimberly Chun, San Fancisco Bay Guardian Online Noise Pop — the quality sounds and sonic surprises always amaze, no matter how few or many shows you catch. I didn’t get to gawk at as much as I’d like, considering I was suffering from a [...]
by Kimberly Chun, SF Bay Guardian MUSIC The simplest, most singular words and images have always been Yoko Ono’s most potent artistic tools — depth charges designed for maximum impact, unexpected wit, and subtly change-inducing effect. And though words like “empowerment” feel too tapped-out to draw from the same power source as Ono-connected words like [...]

Photo by Greg Kadel ©2009 Yoko Ono by Tony Bonyata, Concertlivewire.com, Jan. 6, 2010 She’s been referred to as a witch, a dragon lady and, perhaps most famously (and inaccurately, it should be noted), as the woman who single-handedly broke up The Beatles. While Yoko Ono first made her name in the early ’60s through [...]

Review by Scott Schultz, L.A. Record. Yoko Ono’s new album, Between My Head and the Sky, is better than any post-Beatles album by McCartney, Harrison or Starr. Yeah, I said it. While the former two were baby boomer marshmallows and the latter was a novelty act, Ono has pushed the boundaries of dance music for [...]
