To Orwell Today,
re: previous email about Paul and Yoko
Also, I wanted to strongly suggest that you read May Pang's "loving john" book because she details how Yoko got John back from May Pang in late Jan 1975:
Yoko basically kidnapped John and subjected him to mind control/hypnosis/drugs during a weekend long marathon session that originally started out as just a one hour "stop smoking hypnosis" session that Yoko had promised John would break him of his smoking habit (she lied and said it had worked for her).
Anyway, May's book provides some information about this episode and then Yoko got pregnant that weekend or during that week. I have no evidence but my guess is that she had been going to a fertility clinic to boost her fertility so she could finally get pregnant and then finally suck John back permanently to her.
John had stopped taking calls from Yoko in dec 1974/jan 1975 and was looking at houses to buy for him and May Pang to live in so he was very serious after having lived with May for 18 months. they had even gotten a new apartment to live in together.
Yoko resorted to some really ugly stuff to get John back. I have even written an article about this.
katie, not your average Beatles fan
I probably will read that book LOVING JOHN by May Pang. There were alot of references to her in a book I bought in Hay-on-Wye in Wales a couple of years ago but just recently read entitled LENNON IN AMERICA by Geoffrey Giuliano.
I'm sure you'll probably agree with me that it isn't pleasant reading these books about John's life with Yoko Ono because they are filled with so much horror and it's sad to realize how much he suffered. See LENNON'S DARK FATE ONO
But, like you, I'm not your average Beatles fan and in the search for the truth about John Lennon, the most beloved rock star in the history of music, it is a necessity.
All the best,
Love me do: Yoko reveals it was Paul who saved her marriage to John
by Catherine Eade, Daily Mail, Oct 10, 2010
It became a legendary event in John Lennon's increasingly eccentric life - famously known as 'the lost weekend'. And now, on the day John Lennon fans around the world are celebrating what would have been his 70th birthday, his widow, Yoko Ono, has revealed what happened during those days when John disappeared with their pretty personal assistant. And despite a well known war of words with Beatle Paul McCartney, Yoko credits Macca with actually saving their marriage. John and Yoko had separated in the summer of 1973 after a period of marital strife, and subsequently Lennon began a relationship with his personal assistant May Pang - a collusion Pang says was entirely orchestrated by Yoko. Yoko continued to stay in touch with her errant husband but it was not until they met backstage at an Elton John concert in November 1974 that they became reconciled. But the surprise element of the story is that Yoko reveals Paul McCartney stepped in and brought the couple back together.
That the two were not on good terms and a feud developed after Lennon left the Beatles is well known. Yoko tells The Times: 'I want the world to know that it was a very touching thing that he did for John. 'He was genuinely concerned about his old partner. Even though John was not even asking for help - John, Paul, all of them were too proud to ask anything - he helped. John often said he didn't understand why Paul did this for us, but he did.' As Yoko recounts, Paul and Linda McCartney visited her in New York early in 1974, and they talked long into the night. Paul asked Yoko what would make her take John back and she told him that if John courted her she would perhaps consider it. Paul then visited John in Los Angeles where he was living with May Pang, and according to Yoko advised him on how to get Yoko back. The fact that John immediately tried to court Yoko, and came back to New York, was hugely important she says....Less than a year after they were reunited their son Sean was born, on Johnís birthday...
