John Lennon Would Have Loved Computers
Late Beatle John Lennon would have embraced the Internet era and modern technology, according to Yoko Ono, thanks to the Internet’s ability to bring people from across the world together with a single click.
“Oh, John would have been totally excited about the computer age, because that's the kind of thing that John and I were dreaming of,” Ono told Rolling Stone. “Like the Smile Project [where Ono set out to make a film capturing a smile face of everyone in the world] – we were almost having that kind of format of, like, communication in our heads…”
She added, “It’s very interesting to think about, that John was a person in a rock group, and what they were doing was totally different from what I was doing, but he just jumped in. He was totally open.”
Switching gears to new music, Ono says she doesn’t really have any new favorite bands. She’s too busy for that. “I don't have time to listen to anybody’s music,” she said. “I’m making it, you know.”
