Six Beautiful photos. Thanks greg
She is ageless…
Look, I know this isn’t fair….life ain’t fair, but as far as I’m concerned she’s the reason John is dead ! If it wasn’t for her pushiness John NEVER would have moved to the USA. She was the reason he bought Tittenhurst. The fans were giving her a hard time so he moved to the country. Wasn’t good enough! Push, push, push pack it up and goodbye England….forever. Next thing you know, he’s walking, WALKING the streets of NY where every 4th person has a gun in his pants. Do you know that the first “out and about” pics of the Beatles taken NY had the Dakota in the backround ? Strange things in this Universe and with Yoko fuckin’ with all that Tarot shit….I don’t know. I’m starting to ramble……But ?
I owe John and the Beatles everything. They’re the reason why I picked up the guitar, which is such a huge part of my life….they are such a huge part of my life and when I think about what happen to John and how it just shouldn’t have happened because he shouldn’t have been living here it just angers me beyond words. I remember on Dec 8th 1980 my friend and I were talking about John maybe playing in Pittsburgh….the new LP had just come out after so many yrs and we were excited about the possibility of John touring. I left my friends house at 10:30pm and walked to another friends house. I got there and wasn’t in my seat 60 secs before the news was given by Howard Cosell on Monday night football. I’m still angry all these yrs later!
Thank you very much for these beautiful pictures. : )
Bluesdude .. i have millions of pics of John and Yoko, i don’t see her holding a gun to his head in any of them, John was a big boy and made his own decisions, it’s sliding doors my friend, fate, and a dreadful disturbed person is the reason John was taken from us, nothing more, nothing less. Can i just ask, you must have read the side panel on the front page, can we ‘all’ dial back the Yoko spite, it’s not in the spirit of the blog, and it always causes a shit storm that i have to deal with, i have a lot more things to do with my time than that, like posting, and repairing photo’s, not having a shot at you .. just wording up everyone, i’m no fan of Heather (cough, fart) but for the sake of motoring along with the vibe of the blog, i shush my mouth, just for the sake of steering things away from negativity.
I love Yoko. I think she’s outspoken, creative, and has a great spirit. John loved her, I love John, therefore, I love Yoko.
dear miss tammy – i totally agree with you. and with mary. and here are john’s words on the subject:
“So for all you folks who think that i’m having the wool pulled over my eyes – well, that’s an insult to me. Not that you think less of Yoko, because that’s your problem; what I think of her is what counts! But if you think you know me or you have some part of me because of the music I’ve made, and then you think i’m being controlled like a dog on a leash because i do things with her, then fuck you brother and sister, you don’t know what’s happening. I’m not here for you. I’m here for me and her and the baby!”
I just never will understand why people hate her SO much. There are more words of spite written towards this lady, whom John adored so much, than there are of that vile monster who took his life. It just baffles me. She won’t be understood: that is her. JOHN understood her, and she understood him. He LOVED living in NY. There was drama, yes, but drama comes with a person regardless of where you are. Sad, unfortunate, and tragic circumstances unfortunately happen everywhere, all over the world. Yes, the US has very liberal gun laws…but do you honestly think a crazy person won’t do what a crazy person wants to do regardless of location?
I thought when Heather Mills came along everyone suddenly realized that Yoko wasn’t bad at all.
You can’t deny that Yoko played a role in the Beatles breakup. But it was John who made her a tool to that. After Brian Epstein died John didn’t want to be a Beatle anymore but he didn’t dare to break out. Yoko gave him a new artistic direction und he went there.
From a BEATLES fan’s perspective it’s understandably not welcome.
I don’t think Yoko had anything to do with John’s death. She’d never take him to N.Y knowing he’d be shot. She just happened to be his wife, that’s all. Things happen to everyone and no one can predict anything.
I think Yoko has helped John to grow up a bit. She never took him away from music, tho. He was the one who chose to be a devoted dad and spend more time watching the wheels. Of course we all miss him. The killer is the one we all must hate.
“She’s the reason John is dead”; I think you need to dial back on the weed, Dude. Remember also that The Person Who Shall Not Be Named flew from Honolulu to New York; would it have been easier on you if he went on to London instead? Some people…
For all we know, Yoko might have saved John from O.D.’ing back in ’69; or getting hit by a car or being crushed by a falling piano. I’m sure she feels the weight of “survivor guilt” to this day, and always will. She doesn’t need Dudes in the cheap seats adding their unasked for opinions.
Ugh, thank you mcarp. The lady is vilified because she was a strong woman. John desired that, as his childhood was, let’s face it, ****** up. He wanted to have someone to lean on and to share ideas/ideals with and to “get” him in the way that Cynthia did not. I understand people’s decision not to like her, but give her a little respect. She was his WIFE not some ***** he was spending his last years with. They were together for a long time and had a powerful love and a child together. At least out of some decency towards Sean, who is a very lovely person, can be tone it down a little? This is his mother and father.
She looks great!!! What fantastic photos! Thanks for posting them, Tammy!
You all are right. Honestly I never ever liked Yoko from 1968 until now. I blamed her for everything wrong that happened to the Beatles and John but all you are right in the fact that John loved her and she was his childs mother. I always throw digs at her on this blog , but no more .
Does she always wear low cut blazers?
