a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Was that post stolen the first time you tried to post, Richard?

Edit: nevermind, it has been claimed.

I think Remember Love is a proper name.

Alright, not to double post, but I have to rant:

What the hell does BeatleStories think he's doing?! He has all these wonderful interviews of John, showcasing him at his best AND worse, and has MORE than enough respect for him to know he wasn't a bad person, but actually a wonderful human being....AND HE ALLOWS EVERY VIDEO OF HIS TO BE POLLUTED WITH ANTI-YOKO RHETORIC! It's shameful. He has the ability to show people the REAL John Lennon and he still allows people to spew unfounded venom at Yoko for things she never even did. HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER! He needs to moderate his comment sections and STOP giving these people a platform for their evil.

Which is exactly why I posted it, to be clear. Not trying to get hung up on it, but its important that out of respect for her we point this stuff out. 🙂

I see your point, @MattWatchingWheels, I just feel like it's not exactly the most appropriate place to post such a critique. I don't know about y'all, but speaking for myself, when I come to a thread like this, it's for a respite from Yoko-bashing, not a place to find more bashing (no matter whose side it's on). apple01

Remember heart, that's all I'm saying yoko-ono_01

I want the narratives to end is my point/ That can't happen when people who COULD be making a difference such as he are instead not only allowing it, but feeding into it. We KNOW for a fact that Yoko is innocent of many if not ALL of the crimes people wish her dead for, and I would very much prefer that fact be brought to light more than it is.

@Beatlebug I am in agreement with everything you just said john-lennon-salute_gif

Speaking of Yoko Appreciation...

Yes, but the thread devoted to appreciation of Yoko doesn't need reminders of the existence of Yoko haters. This is a place to think happy Yoko thoughts yoko-ono_01

Yes...I suppose we could use that one.

Love Yoko getting off on the groove here! Digging the beats, probably thinking "oh yeah, Ringo's the one to play on MY album when I do one..."
