The symbolism in that pic is pretty in your face, no? John and Yoko just didn't accept these "roles" we're supposed to play. They did it their way! I think the pic is a pretty cool statement--and eye-candy to boot!

What's wrong with this picture? I have always thought it was a lovely picture, very sweet. I guess it might bother some people because John is naked and Yoko is clothed...but I don't see it as anything other than a very loving and beautiful photo.

The other pics of John and Yoko that Fly posted are great too! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Not sure I agree with all that, and I'm not a Yoko-basher. I too think it's a beautiful picture, you can see how much he loves her. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Actually, John told Annie Leibovitz that it was VERY important that she take the picture of him and Yoko like that, because- to quote Mr. John here- "that is our relationship exactly." Now take that however you choose, but John was ALWAYS in need of a mother-figure- and that was Yoko to him.

Sure, she was his wife and he loved her. But he also depended on her at times when he obviously felt insecure or in need of guidance. And its hard for people to take that all in, that John Lennon the Great could possibly be so vulnerable, but it is the truth.

To turn things around, Yoko also needed John. He said that it was him who kept her feet on the ground. I have SO many John & Yoko interviews, so I can't place where he said it. But it was said by him.

In any case, their relationship was a very special, beautiful one. As Yoko said, not everything was always perfect. But all the beautiful things DID happen, and that was what made the union so strong. But people try and deny that J&Y could have ever been so wonderful together. I read it all the time.

Hey Susan and Fly,
Thanks so much for your last posts. I didn't want to quote them cause they were long, but you both said some great stuff. I hadn't read where John wanted the picture taken like that, so thanks for saying that. I agree with everything the both of you said, I never could have put it into words like that. And Susan when you said something about John not being led around by the balls it made me think of that cartoon I once saw of Yoko as this huge scary beast leading a little dog-like John around on a leash. Yeah, the press couldn't have been more wrong about J&Y sometimes. Thanks again you guys [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I don't know about *sweet* but I do find this Beatle-couple picture funny.

Fly, ARE we the same person? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I agree with what you said wholeheartedly, and I do remember reading that bit about John insisting that Annie Leibovitz take the picture exactly that way. I think it's pretty funny that so many people try to deny or disavow that John could be a very vulnerable and needy person -- yes, he certainly projected an image of strength, but I believe that he was quite insecure and really needed to be reassured of his own worth very often in his life.

Actually, that's one of the things I really love about John -- he was so complex, so full of different emotions and vulnerabilities and strengths...it makes him a very interesting and even more special person as far as I am concerned.

I am also hurt that some people feel that it is necessary to portray Yoko as a Dragon Lady (not you, Amanda, I know you weren't bashing her, I'm talking about people who are REALLY nasty about it) and make it seem like she led John around by the balls or something...rest assured, John Lennon didn't take crap from ANYONE, and he would never have allowed someone he didn't respect and care for deeply to have any influence over him...and I don't think Yoko's influence was OVER John so much as ON him...together they were a great team.
