John winston lennon - the end (1969-1970)

1. Konzert
2. Jazz

Let It Be On January 30th, 1969, the Beatles gathered on the rooftop of Apple headquarters in London to record music for the film, "Let It Be". It was to be the last time the Beatles performed in concert together. Although recorded before Abbey Road, Let It Be was the last release from the Beatles to include new material. Perhaps it is the great sadness of the performance being their last that clouds the music of Let It Be. While the album contains certified hits like \"The Long and Winding Road,\" \"Let It Be\" and \"Get Back,\" the album is sealed with melancholy and disillusionment. The Beatles were separating, going in different directions, and no longer behaved like the super-group they once were. This point is even illustrated on the cover of Let It Be: four separate photos grouped together, with each member looking in a different direction. Long thought of as one of the less accomplished Beatles albums, Let it Be deserves a second spin. After all, it is still a Beatles album, and an under-rated one at that.

Peace Campaigns:
Bed In: John Lennon and Yoko Ono were married on Gibraltar on 20 March 1969. For their honeymoon, they held their first \"Bed-in for Peace\" in the presidential suite of the Amsterdam Hilton. In May they attempted to continue their bed-in in the US, but when the authorities banned them from entering because of their arrest on drug charges the year before, their \"bed-in\" resumed in Montreal.
That May, in their suite at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, they recorded Give Peace A Chance.

Give Peace A Chance
The song was developed during the famous BED-IN. The BED-IN was John's and Yoko's honeymoon. They stayed in bed for more than a week and talked about peace to everybody who came along!
Give Peace a Chance is the first single of the so-called Plastic Ono Band. This band was founded by John Lennon after his break-up with the Beatles.
The Band was not something you would normally call a band, it was an idea or a concept designed by Lennon. Give Peace a chance was a project by a rabbi , a drug-pope, Joko Ono, an entertainer and some members of an indian group of religion. The names of the participating artists are written down in the last part of the Song.
The song title became a slogan for the followers of the peace-movement in the 60's.

The song was quite revolutionary at that time because topics like masturbation were still tabu and making fun of the government/church etc. was quite unusual - John Lennon's play with language was the most important factor for the success of this song.
Over 30 years have come and gone and while some people say John and Yoko were foolish and childish and their "bed-in for peace and love" in 1969 in Montreal was a cliché for all that was goofy about the \"sixties\".

Abbey Road - The Beatles' last album
Songs like Come Together (1st song) and The End (ironically and definitely the last song!) and George Harrisons' song "Something" (with the participation of Frank Sinatra) became world-famous.
