Hans Remembers 50 years ago today- the celebrated marriage of Beatle John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Just eight days earlier Paul McCartney and Linda Eastman were married- now it was John and Yoko- the old gang was starting to break apart and go their own ways. John and Yoko were married in Gibraltar and then moved on to Amsterdam where on March 25th they started their famous [or infamous] bed-in which lasted for a week.

John and Yoko had met in November 1966 at the Indica Gallery in London where Yoko was putting on an exhibit. The relationship between the two didn’t begin until the following year since both were married at the time. Yoko will always be the most controversial figure in Beatles history. John would write The Ballad of John and Yoko about the events leading up to- and following the wedding- it would be the final #1 Beatles single on the UK charts. The marriage of John and Yoko would get my vote as the most celebrated rock music marriage and along with Jerry Lee and Myra’s the most controversial.

  2. Maybe after meeting Yoko and coming under her influence and deciding a few years later to break up the band wasn’t great for his psyche……………

    • I was thinking about it this morning a little bit- after reading a unrelated post concerning death- I don’t think John ever got over his mothers tragic death. I think it effected him until the end. He was always looking for something. Yoko was the latest answer.

    • He was raised by his aunt- he was just reconnecting with his mother- when she was hit by an off-duty policeman while walking across the street outside of where he was living with his Aunt Mimi.
