The Beatles’ late star John Lennon’s official Instagram account shared a rare interview of the legendary vocalist, which he was sharing his thoughts about his albums with Yoko Ono.
After The Beatles disbanded, John was working with his lovely wife Yoko Ono. The couple worked together over six albums and meant to release new ones in the future. However, the sad incident happened and John was murdered in 1980, at the age of 40.
In this rare interview, John Lennon revealed his thoughts about the albums he worked with Yoko Ono and revealed the differences between their singing styles while mentioning that they are looking at the same thing from another angle.
John stated that he calls his parts as the literate versions of what happened in the last year. On the other hand, Yoko’s parts like a sound picture instead of a word picture, and that’s why John called Yoko’s part as a revolutionary.
Here is what John Lennon said:
“With Yoko’s and my albums, we’re both looking at the same thing from different sides of the table.
I call mine a literate version of what we went through in the last year or so, and Yoko’s is a sort of sound picture, rather than a word picture. Mine is literate, hers is revolutionary.”
