John Lennon in New Ad

Remember a number of years ago when a clip of Fred Astaire dancing was manipulated to show him cavorting with a vacuum cleaner?

Yoko Ono vs. Alex Chilton

I had never heard the Yoko Ono song, “Mrs. Lennon,” before. But Alex Chilton certainly has.

Please, For the Love of God, Let it Be

Paul and Yoko duke it out once more, but for what? So what’s the big stink? Paul wants to switch the order of names on the songs he mainly wrote. Who cares? Apperently, Yoko. Though I tend to see it as a lot of hot air, most media outlets have reported that Yoko Ono is … Continue reading Please, For the Love of God, Let it Be
