She set up the LennonOno Offer for Peacefulness in 2002 and became a member of Susan Sarandon for the Performers Against Fracking bus tour of rural Pa in 2013. She completely embraced the bohemian way of living while at Sarah Lawrence University, where she was mentored by John Cage. She and Lennon fulfilled around 1965 or 1966 so when they became a few, her popularity was assured. What followed had been numerous extremely publicized occasions that catapulted her name and her infamy in to the headlines, like the Bed-Ins for Peacefulness. She was blamed by many Beatles enthusiasts for the band’s break up. She was created in Japan and waited out the Globe War II fireplace bombings of Tokyo within a bunker with her family members. She was wedded 3 x before she fulfilled John Lennon, whom she wed in March of 1969.

Longtime friend and next-door neighbor at Manhattan's Dakota apartment building is Roberta Flack.
Release of her book, "Memories of John Lennon". 
Gave birth to her second child at age 42, a son, Sean Taro Ono Lennon,on October 9th, 1975. Child's father is her deceased husband John Lennon.
Gave birth to her first child at age 30, a daughter, Kyoko Chan Cox on August 3rd, 1963. Child's father is her ex-husband Anthony Cox.
Has a stunning amount in common with Linda McCartney, Paul McCartney's late wife. Both women were raised in extremely wealthy environments. Both attempted to make it on their own (McCartney as a photographer, Ono as an actress and artist), only to later be accused of marrying their husbands for their money despite their families' wealth. Both attended Sarah Lawrence College (at different times) and left without finishing degrees. Both married a frontman for the Beatles, and these weddings took place eight days apart in March 1969 (the McCartneys were first). Both women were pregnant at their weddings (Ono later suffered a miscarriage, McCartney later gave birth to Mary McCartney). Both had a daughter from a previous marriage. Both had mentally unstable former husbands (Ono's later kidnapped their daughter and took her to a fundamentalist Christian commune; McCartney's committed suicide in 2000). Both were accused of playing a major role in the Beatles' breakup. Both suffered personal attacks by fans and by the press. Both suffered attacks on their musical talent (particularly vocal) by fans and the press. Both were older than their husbands. Both were activists.
In 2003, at the age of 70, she topped the US dance music charts with a reworking of "Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him", a song she co-wrote with John Lennon, to support gay marriage: "Every Man Has A Man Who Loves Him". She also recorded a lesbian version of the song.
The term "Yoko factor", referring to the influence of wives or girlfriends on a band's politics or business, comes from her constant presence (and kibitzing) at latter-day Beatles recording sessions. (Lennon broke the longstanding no-wives-or-girlfriends rule the Beatles had in the studio, to bring her there.).

Owns the copyrights and masters to her Apple Records releases, including "Two Virgins" and "Life With The Lions", recorded with John Lennon; with none of the records initially selling well, Lennon had to pay Apple for them, as part of the Beatles' partnership settlement. In the 1990s, with interest regenerated, Ono re-released her music through Ryko, after turning down another label that only wanted her albums with Lennon.
As a child she attended the prestigious Jiyu-gakuen Music School in Japan, the training school for many Japanese composers. She was taught piano and composition, as well as voice training in both opera and German Lied singing.
Played her first public concert at the age of four, and her first composition "Secret Piece" was in 1955.
Returned to music in 1995 with her son Sean Lennon and his band Ima Rising.
After her husband John Lennon was fatally shot, she took a photograph of his bloodstained eyeglasses laying on the pavement. In 2002, this photo sold for thousands of dollars.
Before meeting John Lennon, Yoko claimed that the only Beatle Ono knew by name was Ringo, as the word means "apple" in Japanese. In spite of this claim, there is a wealth of evidence that she was very familiar with the Beatles and fan. McCartney has said that she approached him before she ever met Lennon, and Lennon's wife's reported that Yoko pursued Lennon.
Her name translates into English as "Ocean Child".
Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
A mirror becomes a razor when it's broken. A stick becomes a flute when it's loved.
Art is life...It's about living, but it's a way of making your life elegant.
[on the song 'Little Boy Blue, Your Daddy's Gone'] That was a song to Sean because I understand what he had to go through. When John and I were going to have him, we said, 'Anybody who is John and Yoko's child should be very, very happy'. But we really hadn't realized that it could be very difficult for him. And it was. And it is is, in a way.
[observation, 2013, on John and herself] We felt that our heaven was in hell. Hell was created by people for us, but we still had heaven between us. We were so adamant about our love, and when I look around I feel that people are much more interested in making money and trying to be famous. They're ignoring their hearts. That's why there are so many heart operations, I think.
It'd be good if we loved each other and would give some focus to each other, and weren't afraid of being passionate. To have a relationship that is pure and passionate and beautiful - I think people are scared of having that now. Especially guys.
Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you'll start to see a big difference in your life.
(about her relationship with the Beatles) It was like, I went to bed with this guy I liked, and when I woke up, there were these three faces staring at me.
I thought art was a verb, rather than a noun.
If John was still alive we would have retired to Cornwall. He said we would be sitting in rocking chairs together, waiting for a postcard to come from Sean.
When I met John I was at the point of disappearance, in the eyes of other people and myself. Where could I go after I'd done the silent music and they still didn't catch up on it? You see, the things that I did then I feel were in a field that no one has really touched on yet. I think I had something to offer but people did all sorts of things to misunderstand me and I was very lonely. I just can't stand that loneliness and always being at the point of disappearing. So I'm quite happy screaming and all that, making my presence clear, and it's a healthier thing to do.
