Review, 'Days That I'll Remember: Spending time with John Lennon and Yoko Ono'
Published: February 13, 2013
Or, as Joe Strummer once said, "Forget about your parents and deal with this."
Lennon and Ono were able to deal with this relying on each other, and you can't separate one from the other. Not surprisingly, the presence of "Mother," the affectionate nickname Lennon used to address his beloved, is felt throughout the book. In 2012, Ono and Cott met in Sweden especially for this book and she told him a story that adds fuel to the never-ending LennOno legend.
"[I first met John] when I was having my first show in London at the Indica Gallery," Ono told Cott, referring to the well-publicized story about when John climbed the stairs in Ono's installation and read "Yes" on the ceiling. "John had just come to the gallery directly from 3 Abbey Road — that's the address of Abbey Road Studios — and the number 3 in numerology stands for music. And I was at number 6 Masons Yard, which was the address of the Indica Gallery — and the number 6 stands for love. So on that very day music came to love."
