Yoko Ono will have a busy 2013 with the expected reissue of her albums from 1968 through 1985. Also on her busy calendar will be the release of a career-spanning art book, Infinite Universe at Dawn, which will highlight 60 years of Yoko Ono art. She will also curate the 2013 Meltdown Festival at Southbanke Centre that will take place in June.
On this day in 1980, John Lennon was shot five times by 25-year-old Mark Chapman outside the Dakota building in New York City where John and Yoko Ono lived. Chapman had been stalking Lennon for days outside the building and asked for an autograph as Lennon walked through the courtyard.
17 October 2000, a flat in Montague Sq. London, which was once owned during the '60s by Ringo Starr, went on the market for £575,000. The two bedroom, two-story property was also home to Jimi Hendrix, John and Yoko, and Paul McCartney during the 60s.
Yoko Ono is diminutive in size, but huge in spirit. She is a fearless artist who will attempt anything whether it's topping the Billboard charts as a dance diva in her seventh decade or redefining our concept of space with her art installations.
Never be stumped in another interview! Rock stars and would be rock stars can go to the Arty Bullocks Generator and grab a brainy quote for any occasion. Either that, or they can steal Yoko Ono's tweets.
