About Julian in NYC…I still find it cruel of her. That she wouldn't want him there, as Joe suggests, baffles me. I know they didn't have a funeral/memorial service, but I think family needs that kind of closure that comes with being together and mourning their loved one. Julian was a part of John…he had as much right to be at any of the services as Yoko and Sean. It would have killed me to not have been able to go to my dad's funeral when I was a kid…I couldn't imagine someone wanting to keep a kid from that.

Julian went without first alerting Yoko. It caught her off guard.

It really depends on the day for me whether I hate her or not. Like today, I tolerrate her. And I'm not too keen on her music but  Walking on Thin Ice isn't terribly bad.


I like Walking on Thin Ice. I like a remix that's over there. Very good stuff, you can see John's hand in there. Too bad all her music is not like that. I don't like screaming voices in music. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13
 

wow.. 17… a-hard-days-night-paul-4two-virgins


Actually, mith, there's surprisingly little shriekiing on her later albums – she began singing more and more, and screaming less, after about 1972 or so. Plus she began to develop a little more control. But just the very sound of her voice will always be hard for some people to take.

I like her DF songs more than her previous work, at least what I know about it.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I'd like to thank everyone for the warm welcome. I like to talk about the Beatles, so I may continue to post my thoughts when something catches my eyebrian-epstein.

Well considering that I'm going to get Lennon's box, I will have to listen to her music at least once. mhhh is Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band in the Lennon's box?

Re: guitar. I'm not sure. I want an electric one, but I might go for an acoustic one.  That's one of the things in my bucket list : Learn to play a musical instrument. Though I have more chances with a piano because when I was a kid, I used to play on a keyboard for kids. I'm good at learning musical instruments, a guitar would be quite a challenge though.

 

Anyway let's go back to the topic. Yoko. Umb.  Yeah. Yoko. yoko-ono-01

 

Oh 17!! So yeah I'm getting the guitar! a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band isn't in the Lennon box, unsurprisingly. The only Yoko songs are on Double Fantasy, Milk And Honey and Some Time In New York City.

They should rerelease her stuff, it would help expand her audience and Lessen the hate.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Haha, I suspect that would create more new fans AND haters both!

Well, if you hate the shrieking, you'd DEFINITELY want to avoid that one anyways, trust me!  So it's just as well it's not part of the Lennon box. (It's still probably my favourite.)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Charlie Sheen may disagree.
I could be wrong here, but I don't really think there would be a market for a re-mastered Yoko catalogue. It would be like that old movie, "Suppose They Gave A War and Nobody Came". Instead it would be "Suppose They Re-released Yoko's Albums and Nobody Bought Them".

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

That`s true. But Millions of bands rerelease music that doesn`t sell. I`m just saying sales are, most likely, non-existant now. Why not take a shot

The instrument I would like to learn most would probably be the sitar.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

For me, The sitar would be cool, but I'm too lazy to try

They could make 'em available on iTunes maybe – is there any financial risk for record companies if they aren't actually manufacturing actual CDs or records that could potentially go unsold and unwanted?

Most of my own Yoko collection is on CD, the Rykodisk reissues from 1997. It looks as though they can still be bought through Amazon, but I can't figure out whether they're actually still "in print" or whatever.
