...Club Band” and its reprise, is a wildly heterogeneous, if sometimes brilliant, album. Indeed, the album's standout track—perhaps the richest, most evocative song the Beatles ever recorded, making magic out of the forced marriage of a Lennon verse chorus and an unrelated McCartney bridge—is “A Day in the Life,” which closes the album proper, following even the “Sgt. Pepper” reprise. So much for the high concept of this concept album. But while one might quibble about its rank in the Beatles’ oeuvre, there is no disputing the historical and cultural...

...a previous marijuana bust—and the fact that Lennon had just recorded the Beatles song “Revolution”—Lennon was denied a U.S. travel visa. “The States are afraid we’re going to go over there and rouse the kids up,” he told reporters. “We intend to calm it down, you know. I think the States needs us, we can help” ( Norman, 2008 , p. 605). Instead, John and Yoko flew to Canada, where they staged a “bed-in” for peace. They arrived in Toronto on May 26 and made their way to the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal. A journalist asked Lennon what he hoped to...

...format of rock radio, AOR (album-oriented rock), geared to play arena rock’s warhorses constantly, fetishistically. 17 Singer-songwriters emerged as no less commercially dominant, especially in album sales, creating a middle of the road soft rock known on radio by 1980 as “adult contemporary.” From Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge over Troubled Water and Carole King’s Tapestry , the biggest albums ever to that point, to the mellow James Taylor and Jackson Browne or arena groups with akin sensibilities like Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles, singer-songwriters...

They're as close to being mad as makes no difference. After a confrontation...

Briefly touted as a possible replacement for Paul McCartney in the fast-disintegrating Beatles, Voormann instead became a fixture of the ex-members’ solo releases, including George Harrison ’s All Things Must Pass and Ringo Starr ’s Ringo .

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Japanese-born artist Yoko Ono (b. 1933 ) began creating visual and performance art provoking reflection on world events, the art world, and peace. She participated in the avant-garde Fluxus group of artists and created conceptual performance art, such as the Cut Piece ( 1964 ), involving audience members in cutting away her clothing to reveal women’s vulnerability. In 1969 she and her husband, the musician John Lennon, produced the recording of “Give Peace a Chance,”...
