BAM! by Yoko Ono: We Are Plastic Ono Band: Yoko + incredible special guests: Brooklyn Academy of Music, NY 16 Feb
BAM! Suddenly the audience started to sing Happy Birthday to me right in the middle of the sing along GIVE PEACE A CHANCE! That was such a nice surprise. I was so unprepared for it, I don't even remember if I had thanked the audience or not. Did I? There was so much love circulating, it didn't seem necessary to say anything... We were family. The curtain went down after GIVE PEACE A CHANCE. Sean and I looked at each other. Sean's eyes were twinkling. "You were great." said Sean. "So were you." It was a grand moment. We knew we had been witnesses to something that was bigger than both of us.

While Yoko Ono first made her name in the early '60s through [...]

While the former two were baby boomer marshmallows and the latter was a novelty act, Ono has pushed the boundaries of dance music for [...]
