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

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.
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.

Rolling Stone posed six questions to Sonic Youth singer-guitarist/record exec/general cool guy Thurston Moore. He spoke out in favor of noise rock, Yoko Ono and his right to be a snooty music expert in the school cafeteria. Name one of your earliest examples of rock-star behavior. The most rock-star thing I did at fourteen would have [...]
After a touring retrospective and the reissue of eleven albums, it's time to take Yoko Ono seriously While Yoko Ono is still regarded by many as the Beatles’ persona non grata, a quiet re-evaluation of her art and music has been underway for some time. A sort of subcultural logic has dictated that anyone [...]
