Yoko Ono Didn’t Kill The Beatles, But Her Performance On ‘Letterman’ With The Flaming Lips Killed Music

Yoko Ono is not to blame for breaking up the Beatles. John Lennon was already splintering off from the rest of the group by the time she came along; her presence only hurried the process along. That’s my defense of Yoko the person; I have no such justification for her experimental art and post-Lennon avant-garde “music” that sounds like three feral cats being scrapped against a dusty chalkboard. For proof: try to describe her entire performance with the Flaming Lips on Letterman last night without the use of the words “shrill” and “banshee-like.” It’s impossible.
