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

The Ballad of John and Yoko by John Lennon, from Skywriting by Word of Mouth I'd always had a fantasy about a woman who would be a beautiful, intelligent, dark-haired, high-cheekboned, freespirited artist (a la Juliette Greco). My soul mate. Someone that I had already known, but somehow had lost. After a short visit to India on [...]
9. YOKO ONO She has borne herself with more integrity and dignity than all her critics combined. She has generated an incredible body of work -- articulate, experimental, feminist, inspirational -- as 1992's massive Ono Box Set proves. She positively influenced John Lennon -- possibly the most important popular music icon of late 20th century -- encouraging him to lose his misogyny and become politically active. (She was also directly responsible for Lennon's finest work, the primal scream therapy of Plastic Ono Band.) She has influenced generations of left-field musicians, from PiL to Sonic Youth to Huggy Bear. Ono is America's most underrated artist.
