Lovers of Yoko and the Avant Garde, rejoice. The rest of you, try not to laugh too hard. I laughed so hard I nearly shit myself - I swear I was at least crowning. Especially from 3:06 in, onward.

Under the video someone commented, "Did you notice George wasn't there? He called in well that day". a-hard-days-night-george-5

Then I did more than just crown.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 If I'm going to watch stuff like this, I gotta start wearing diapers.

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

Ah, I've never heard this before. I believe this was the day George walked out of the Let It Be sessions, temporarily (as it turned out) quitting the band. The Beatles took it out on their instruments.

OK Zig, a bit too much information there.

Saying that Yoko broke up The Beatles is like saying Cynthia kept it together. The common denominator was John. I've read he was unhappy with being a Beatle in 1965. My favorite Lennon solo album is the second album of Some Time In New York City.

That was… truly funny. Not your comments Zig.. the video a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

 

Edit : Actually the jam session would be better without Yoko. Honestly.

You're joking, right? What's good about it? I just had to listen to it all so I could write about the songs. I couldn't find anything particularly worthwhile there, and as a live album I think Live Peace In Toronto 1969 and Live In NYC are better.

i've never heard "some time" but I undestand Zappa was annoyed that "King Kong" was retitled "Jamrag" for this release, thus depriving him of royalties

Me? Not particularly, though I haven't heard much of his stuff. Can you recommend a good place to start?

I'm sure Von can do you justice in recommending a good Zappa album to start with. The only one I've ever heard all the way through is Joe's Garage.

I liked it, but it is not for everyone.

Yoko didn't break up the Beatles directly - only indirectly - John's heroin addiction is to me clearly the one thing that if it had not happened, the gourp most likely would have continued on much longer and much healthier. However Yoko turned John on to heroin and encouraged the use. Heroin is what did John in, forced Paul to take on a more forceful role, this pissed off George and John (and Ringo to a certain degree) Paul's leadership role took out of balance up the incredible dynamics that made the group what they were.

That's my take.

Acutally, I was speculating that dave9199 was a Zappa fan, thus explaining his affinity for that particular record, rather than asking Joe's opinion -  I could've made that clearer.

Ask any Zappa fan for recommendations, and they'll (we'll) immediately either name a dozen titles or say "Well, it depends...."

Back to Yoko, does anyone think this reporter was in any way sexist or racist? I can see why she might be upset with the question, but I think her response was wide of the mark.

If I just read the question, I can't see how it could be considered  sexist or racist.

If her answer was just the part where she said "Because I'm sure that many people are living in their own home, that he or she shared with their spouses, even after the spouse has passed away. Especially because they passed away. Because there's a lot of memories, and also you built the place with the spouse. I'm not going to leave that and go to some strange house." - that would have been enough.

Having said that, I don't know what type of history Yoko and the reporter have or the tone of voice with which the question was asked. It's like the old exercise where you say the sentence "I did not say he beat his wife." When you place the emphasis on each different word of that sentence, it means something different entirely.

I'm just trying to give her some benefit of the doubt because I can't see why else she would have snapped like that.

I can't see it as racist, but sexist? Maybe if you really, really stretch it - a real woman should break down everytime she walks in the front door? I doubt I would interpret the question that way, but it is clearly a touchy subject. I think it has more to do with her assuming that everyone is still attacking her legitamacy as John's wife. It's all in the mind.

I don't think it's racist or sexist, but way too personal. To me, if someone asks me why I'm still living in my Mom's house where she passed away, I say "Why not?" but like saying "That's none of your business" Of couse my Mom's death wasn't as tragical as John's.(She passed away after a long illness). But I don't see the room where she died like something that hurts me all the time. Of course, when I remember her with a song or something like that, I think about it.

But I can imagine Yoko feeling angry at it. Should she have handled this better? Of course. But again, it's Yoko. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Paul has said that Yoko is just more determined to be herself than most people.

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