Resolved Question: Did Yoko Ono break up The
Some people gossip and say Yoko Ono split up The Beatles, she did things like told John not to talk to the beatles or hang out with them and stuff like that
But then some people say this is not true and that Yoko actually encouraged them to get back together.
I really dont know who to believe. As a Beatles fan what information do you have?

Resolved Question: Do you like Yoko Ono?
Just want to see what people think and their reasons for why they think that.
Me? I dislike her. She got John on the drugs, which was probably how he ended up with her in the first place, constantly turned up at his and Cynthia's house and claims she is 'John's true love'. Then why did he break up with her before he died and move in with May Pang? Cynthia was with him before he was in the Beatles and still loves him now. Yoko seems strange to me. I used to like her, before you say anything, but since then I've been doing a LOT of research on this. Oh yeah, she controlling and caused tension in the band, which is why they broke up.
What about you guys? I'm not here for an argument, I just want to hear people's different opinions and reasons.

Resolved Question: What are your opinions on
I feel as if I'm one of the only people who love Yoko Ono? She was married to John Lennon and I think she has great music. She does have that screaming and moaning weird music but I kinda like that too lol. I don't think she broke up the Beatles, and I think her love with John was true and pure. What're your opinions on her & why? Just curious because I see many mixed opinions. It's usually either a love or hate thing with her :P
