I’m reading “All We Are Saying: the last Major Interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono” by David Sheff. A must for Beatle fans and art lovers, but more than that it is quite interesting on many levels. Thirty years have passed since both the 3-week long interview (the book is comprised of transcripts from those taped conversations, some of which you can find here on NPR) and John’s tragic death a mere two days after the interview was completed. Yet there are passages in the book where the topics are eerily prophetic (John talks with near clairvoyance about American car manufacturers still designing cars for the 40’s and 50’s instead of what today’s market wants and needs in a way that seems ironic now after last year’s automotive bloodbath) and very relevant to where we are. Time after time both John and Yoko say in the interview that they don’t have the answers, they are merely saying yet again what has been said before by others. The message is love. The message is peace. The message is do not follow leaders, do not follow us: get educated and make up your own minds. Then you will arrive at your own answers. Yoko Ono was much maligned by Beatles fans back in the day and the rants live on in blog comments being posted every day. The interviewer draws Mr. & Mrs. Lennon out on how painful that personally must have been for Yoko as well as for John. I am only partway into the book and I’m sure I’ll have more to add later on. I am finding the couple’s insights on Love & Relationship to be very meaningful and I think you will, too.
