Yoko Ono

"SXSW is thrilled to announce Yoko Ono as a very special featured speaker for the 25th Music Conference and Festival. Ms. Ono will sit down with Jody Denberg for a SXSW Interview on Friday March 18th. From her pioneering work in the Fluxus movement of the 1960s to the recent Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland, Ono's art has challenged and informed, melding the personal to the universal in simple and unique ways. Her marriage and creative collaboration with John Lennon was a love story played out on the global stage. Ono's music laid the groundwork for the sounds of punk rock and new wave. Recently, Ono has had five consecutive dance singles charting at #1 on the top of the Billboard Dance Chart. In 2009, she received Mojo Magazine's Lifetime Achievement Award, and she assembled a new PLASTIC ONO BAND for her latest album, Between My Head And The Sky, co-produced with son Sean Lennon, on his Chimera Music label. From gallery to stage to social media platforms, Yoko Ono brings a message of peace to the world. Ms. Ono's ongoing projects are detailed at imaginepeace.com. Ms. Ono will also be a special guest performer at a Chimera Music night, Saturday, March 19 at The Elysium, 705 Red River St"
Yoko Ono is 78 today! In honor of that she asks us to 'Imagine Peace', and Reykjavik is illuminating the "Imagine Peace Tower." Happy Birthday Yoko (and Juelz Santana, Regina Spektor, Andy & Jez Williams of Doves, Molly Ringwald, Matt Dillon, John Travolta and Dr. Dre).

Totally off topic but the last time I saw Yoko Ono, there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info. The guy kept asking her "Do you like my seven and a half inches? Do you like my seven and a half inches? Is it the biggest you've ever had?" Yeah bro you're cool

Hey 9:16, as the person who originally wrote that comment meme, I wanted to let you know that it's now been copywrited and you must pay a royalty of $100 each time it's used.

Love,
The original "seven and a half inches" comment writer

"Ono's music laid the groundwork for the sounds of punk rock and new wave."

um, no not really.

She certainly predated new-wave, that's for sure.

Her music sucks and she broke up the Beatles. FAIL.

11:08--Are you nine years old? Anyone who says Ono's "music sucks" hasn't heard it and/or doesn't understand it. Second, anyone still whining about the Beatles breakup needs to be retroactively aborted.

I hate both her and her son...Sean called the RD in college on me for smoking weed in my dorm room and I got in trouble..

It's definitely easy to "imagine peace" from the comfort of one's limo. We should all rent limos, hit art-openings and events the way they do! Then tell everyone "hey remember peace!" The hypocrisy is beyond amusing...
