Yeah, but Linda had a role in it as well. Musicians gotta learn not to let their significant others in on band issues.I knew Yoko Ono was evil. She broke up the Beatles!
While Yoko was certainly the biggest instigator - insisting on John bringing her into rehearsals, driving a wedge between John and Paul - I had always read that Linda, in her own way, helped split the band up. Both women sat behind the scenes telling their men that they were better off without the other, and both John and Paul had egos that needed that push. Granted, there were other things going on as well,and without the impetus, they most likely wouldn't have lasted more than another few years, but it had always seemed to me - from what I had read - that both women had pushed the split much sooner.Really? Linda?
John was said to have been well aware that his wife was attracted to Havadtoy. One track on Double Fantasy is I’m Losing You – which John composed and wrote in a two-hour frenzy, fearful that Yoko, whom John called “Mother”, had fallen in love with Havadtoy.
On the same night as John’s murder, it is said, Havadtoy moved into the Dakota. He barely left Yoko’s side for months.
But suddenly, Sam took on a new image. Yoko had her young companion dress up in John’s old clothes, and wear his hair long, just like John’s. It was an impersonation that shocked and embarrassed their neighbours, including ballet star Rudolph Nureyev, who commented on it.
Havadtoy and Yoko wound up spending 20 years together – far longer than her marriage to John – and separated in 2000.
Peebles says: ‘I started asking myself whether she and Sam had been having a relationship before John’s death. All the pennies dropped at once.
So she watered his song down and used edgy lyrics herself - what a bitch!Yoko was not happy with this raw and edgy first version of I'M LOSING YOU and sacked the musicians, resulting in this less edgy version on the final album of DOUBLE FANTASY.....
And then, on the same album, Yoko composed a reply song to John's...
Season of Glass is a 1981 album by Yoko Ono, her first solo recording after the murder of her husband John Lennon. The album was released less than six months after Lennon's death and deals with it directly in songs such as "Goodbye Sadness" and "I Don't Know Why". Season of Glass charted at number 49, making it Ono's highest-charting solo album to date.
After Lennon was killed, Ono retrieved his bloodied eyeglasses and photographed them against a backdrop of Central Park, using them as a reminder of both how much he loved New York City and how cruel it could be.
For Season of Glass—her 1981 album and her first after Lennon was murdered—she sat them next to a half-empty glass, and poured forth a beautiful, often challenging document of her grief. The album’s first single, “No, No, No,” began with the sound of four gunshots ringing out, followed by Ono’s piercing, devastated shriek and a cacophony of slightly untuned guitars.
Ms. Ono also said that she thought it was important for people to understand what happened to her husband, who was shot four times in the back. “Instead of just enjoying John’s beautiful songs, I wanted everyone to understand the reality of what happened to him,” she said.
