John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band
While a Beatle, John embarked on an artistic journey with Yoko Ono, producing experimental, and often unlistenable sounds (and “that” album cover). Within the concept of an undefinable Plastic Ono Band, John released one of rock’s greatest, and, most soul-bearing, masterpieces. The band was an entity before and beyond the eponymous album. This class examines the social statements, the enduring band, John’s personal pain that led to the eponymous record’s creation, and the album’s legacy.
