Footnotes

  • In January 1970 John and Yoko, together with Yoko's daughter Kyoko, stayed with Yoko's ex-husband, Tony Cox, in his Danish farmhouse. During this time John and Yoko wore matching tracksuits: they had two each, John's in blue, Yoko's in red. It was here that the couple decided to cut off their trademark long hair, as a symbol of the beginning of a new decade, a new start.
