Yoko Ono: Enjoying music is enjoying life (LA Record)

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.

It’s Me, I’m Alive: A Conversation with Yoko Ono (by Thomas Britt, PopMatters)

Yoko Ono began 2010 by participating in “Art Adds,” a project that exhibits her artwork on New York City taxicabs.

My soul mate. Someone that I had already known, but somehow had lost. After a short visit to India on [...]

IMAGINE: The Peace Ballad of John and Yoko [Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada]

A “conscientious objector” during a period of societal and political crisis throughout the world, John Lennon, along with his muse and alter ego Yoko Ono, sang a message of hope and tolerance that sought the transformation of violence into peace, and hate and racism into love. Today, the work they carried out together has not [...]

Happening High Priestess

  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.
