See Hear Yoko captures the rich complexity of Yoko Ono—woman, artist, activist, wife and mother—from her days with John Lennon through the present, with intimate portraits by the legendary rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen, and words by Ono herself, edited from conversations with Jody Denberg, rock radio’s “Voice of Austin, Texas.”
Conceived expressly for Yoko Ono as a gift between friends on the occasion of her eightieth birthday, and published at her personal request, See Hear Yoko is legendary rock-and-roll photographer Bob Gruen’s tribute to an icon of contemporary American cultural history, from her days with John Lennon up through the present. Gruen, who served as personal photographer to Lennon and Ono during their years in New York City, has collaborated with his friend, Austin rock radio mainstay Jody Denberg, who edited twenty-five years of interviews with Yoko for the book’s text.
In this breathtaking volume, Gruen has selected more than two-hundred classic color and black-and-white photographs that intimately illuminate the life of Yoko Ono at the height of her fame as a woman, wife, mother and avant-garde artist (who keeps creating, she says, because “That’s who I am.”) Yoko’s role as peace activist and artist underscores the enduring legacy of the era of rock-and-roll. See Hear Yoko reveals a modern woman in love, in ascension, in grief, in joy and in peace.
Lavish and beautiful, mirroring the deeply personal design of the original volume given to Yoko herself, See Hear Yoko brings into focus an extraordinary woman and one of the most memorable periods in modern history.

Arthur May is a prodigious singer, songwriter, fontman and entertainer. He has recorded, written and toured from Spain to New York, Montreal, Paris and London. His first recordings happened as a result of a television show in Paris where he was debuted to the public. Arthur's bands include Arthur's Dilemma and his fist spot as guitarist was with a Hippy outfit that Arhur recalls was wonderful fun Starry-Eyed and Laughing. In London his buds were Al Stewart, Jasper Carrot. In 1977, Arthur and his band Arthur's Dilemma took Montreal by storm and arrived in New York to play Max's Kansas City every week for 4 months. This necessitated 5 changes of clothes for each show as they were either wet from performing or torn off by vagabond lovers all a part of that great event called New York in the 1970s. The houses they played were packed with the fashionisti and the Glitterati John and Yoko, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and every one ih the New Wave came to see this band. Arthur's status with work visas was precarious and so he returned to England and the further adventures.......will be revealed in the second part of Arthur's musical profile on the Radio show.

TONIGHT- Medium & Channeler SOLANA channels John Lennon in the afterlife. Join us for this celebration and Q&A of one of the most beloved men in our history, Mr. John Lennon.
The killing, on Dec. 8, 1980, marked a major social shift
John Lennon’s death 34 years ago today triggered the same shock and outpouring of grief as the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and John F. Kennedy. So wrote critic Jay Cocks for his 1980 TIME cover story about the legacy of the late Beatle and his death by the hands of Mark David Chapman. The touching tribute — comments from Bruce Springsteen that are included in the piece may bring tears to your eyes — featured one memorable quote from Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono: “This is not the end of an era,” she said in the days after he was killed. “The ’80s are still going to be a beautiful time, and John believed it.”
But in his piece, Cocks makes the case for why Ono’s words were more wishful thinking than a truthful declaration.
The band had broken up a decade before, but Lennon’s death signaled a shift more serious than the Beatles’ dissolution ever did. After all, the music of the Beatles would be around indefinitely, whether or not the band continued to record together.
When Lennon died at age 40, however, everyone who had grown up with the Beatles was approaching middle age too. In addition to their sadness about Lennon’s death, they could not ignore their own mortality. “For everyone who cherished the sustaining myth of the Beatles,” Cocks wrote, “the murder was something else. It was an assassination, a ritual slaying of something that could hardly be named. Hope, perhaps; or idealism. Or time. Not only lost, but suddenly dislocated, fractured.”
