Den nionde november är det 50 år sedan den brittiska poplegenden och Beatles stjärnan John Lennon och den japanska konstnären och artisten Yoko Ono möttes för första gången. Det var på Yoko Ono´s egen konstutställning på “the Indica Gallery” i London.
Lennon har alltid sagt att han minns detta första möte till den nionde men många Beatles kunniga och fans menar på att mötet som skulle leda till början på en av vår tids mest uppmärksammade och dramatiska kärlekshistorier egentligen ägde rum den sjunde november – dagen före utställningens premiär.
