英会話ブログ その587     Yoko Ono, The Beatles' Curse (2)

2015/01/28

Yoko herself was totally untalented, though she, having been a rich kid, belonging to a powerfully rich "zaibatsu" family in Tokyo, had studied music and had even gone to the same university as the present Emperor of Japan.  Yoko and he were actually good friends at that time.  It's amazing the connections "Big Money" can make.

Yoko eventually made her way to New York City and became a part of the avant-garde (cool and modern) community in the Village, which was filled with artists and musicians.  Yoko thought of herself as an "artist" but in reality she was only a weird would-be.

Before snaring (catching) John at an Art Gallery in London, she had already been married twice before.  
She lives in New York City now.                             (V.C)
