I just came across this 60 Minutes feature on Cynthia and Yoko, with an appearance by a 12-year-old Sean. I couldn't think of anywhere else to post it.

When did Yoko start wearing sunglasses, btw? I read that she claimed she wears them because John said he liked her with them, so she's never goes out without them. I wonder when she decided to start that tradition.

I heard the same thing that John liked how they looked on her so as a tribute to him she wears them. Sean even once joked that if his friends see her without the shades, they get confused looks on their faces. The first time she wore them on an album cover was '82's It's Alright (I See Rainbows).

Didn't know where else to put this, but someone posted this link elsewhere - it's an interview with Reggie King in which he mentions his part in bringing John and Yoko together:

You knew Yoko Ono early as well, is that right?
Yeah, I met Yoko at the Middle Earth in Covent Garden. She said “Reggie, you look very much like John Lennon” – which a few people had said before because I guess I do look a bit like him. “I’d really like to meet John” she said. As we had the same producer as The Beatles she wouldn’t leave me alone. It wasn’t me she wanted, it was John. So I said, “Look, if it helps, John does occasionally go to The Speakeasy. I see him there sometimes on a Tuesday night.” The very next Tuesday she was there. Before, she’d had all the flower dresses on, the psychedelic outfit, but in The Speakeasy she had the West End girl look. All smooth and smart. That night Paul and John came in. Paul said hello. And John used to say to me (adopts heavy scouse accent) “Aye, ye Action Man!” That was all he ever used to say, but he spoke to me at least! Yoko stood there dumbfounded, “Wow, you really do know The Beatles.” Within fifteen minutes she was in there and the rest is history.

Yeah shes basically used him and his legacy to launch her celebrity profile. Apparently she was planning to divorce him then he decided to release an album.Saw another opportunity. He wanted it to be a solo album, she forced herself on and even made him alternate songs because she knew no one would listen to hers on one side. Jack Douglass had to hold separate sessions most of the time with only one present because they couldnt be in studio together. So I look at Johns final album as a combination of DF and Milk And Honey. Would of been possibly his best. John definitely loved her, must of to put up with that. But I dont know if she did during the recording of DF. 

Also regarding facebook post Yoko is saying that because she didnt treat John good. Well thats the image I get from mutiple insider books. Charlie Swann tarot advisor AKA John Green has a book about his experiences. So does Fred Seamans their personal assistant.

Yeah, because they're so reliable. Those of you who want to believe the worst about Yoko or John & Yoko really amaze me sometimes with the trash you'll believe. Paul himself brought John and Yoko back together, so he must have believed she loved him. But all of you know better because John Green and Fred Seaman said differently... And you think Yoko was the one who used him for her own benefit??

That was in '74 alot can happen between then and 1980....Plus Paul did that most likely to try and mend there friendship. Listen to his demos and output during that period. He doesnt sound too happy. Just like starting over, he wanted to start over why? Things werent right. I said I believe John loved her, but I cannot say the same about Yoko. Also I'm Losing You...Johns music has always been truthful. So with what he is saying and insiders accounts, thats enough to cast doubt in my mind. Also she knew who he was before they met. She even admitted to using him for the peace movement. But before you trash a source, have you actually read any of those books? Heard what Jack Douglas has said about those sessions?

One thing that nobody can really refute is the fact that John & Yoko's marriage survived much adversity over the years which further strengthened the undeniable bond between them, even if the claims of them going through a rough time in John's last years are in fact true, I would think that it would've been more likely that they'd moved past it and become even closer as a result.  Reading into John singing about "starting over" because of some desire to make a clean break from Yoko, or a "divorce", is nonsense.  He says "when I see you darling, it's like we BOTH are falling in love again, it'll be just like starting over"...:-) 

You have totally twisted my words. I was saying he wanted to start over with her...But why start over? because they didn't have a great relationship. I wasn't referring to him leaving her, but many sources claim she was going to leave him but then he decided to launch a comeback. Also the Lost weekend, apparently both had ongoing affairs. This website mentions Yoko was also dating some guitarist during the lost weekend, which I was surprised I hadn't heard. Apparently he never stops seeing May. The BOTH line cant be used to support her loving him.Written by John its what he wanted and hoped for in my opinion.John knew how to manipulate the media which they both did.  I look at Johns I'm Losing You  followed by Yoko's I'm Moving On as some sort of supporting evidence. Also my friend knows Fred Seaman he's a good guy his account is very accurate. My friend never new he even worked for John. The book was also published in 1992 so he didn't hop on the 80's bandwagon. He was crushed when he was killed. I am and never said she didn't love him she did, but there is enough evidence to cast doubt in my mind if to question if she did in 1980.
