What Would You Ask Yoko?

Wednesday, September 16, 2009 - 10:25 PM

Next week, Kurt will be speaking to musician, artist, and all-around icon Yoko Ono -- she has a new album coming out, "Between My Head and the Sky," on which she collaborated on with her son Sean Lennon.

Ono's work (and life) has raised controversy as well as inspired praise. From her participation in the Fluxus movement of the 1960's, to her recent collaborations with Cat Power and Peaches, Ono (age 76) remains a viable contributor to the contemporary art scene.

It seems that everyone has an opinion about Yoko Ono -- if you were in Kurt's chair, what would you ask her? Add your question below. The interview will air in early October. We'll let you know if your question makes the cut.

On a different note, we were sad to learn that another pop icon of the 1980's and 90's, Patrick Swayze, passed away yesterday. The dancer Rasta Thomas was in Swayze's 2004 movie "One Last Dance" (his wife, Lisa Niemi, wrote, directed, and co-starred). While the clip below is obviously a tribute to Michael Jackson, I think you'll see Swayze's influence in there as well.

Will you ever go on tour with your son Sean and come to Vermont, where you and Sean are very much loved and respected?
