Yoko Ono will break from tradition when she marks the 25th anniversary of her late husband John Lennon's assassination this year (05), by spending it away from their New York City apartment.

Ono has always spent the 8 December at home in the Dakota Building, where the IMAGINE star was gunned down by obsessed fan Mark David Chapman in 1980.

But this year she will visit Lennon's native Britain on the landmark date and attend a series of special events arranged to honour Lennon's enduring legacy.

She says, "I usually spend the day at home, and then, in the evening, I light candles to let (the fans) know I am still with them.

"But this year is an important anniversary. John is still very present in my life, and both SEAN, our son, and I have John in our minds and hearts.

"There is nothing different about that this year. I miss him every day, and that's just part of my life.

"But this is a major year for John's work, and there are many events to celebrate it. To celebrate in London, with the British, is great."

This is good news, that John Lennon's life and work is celebrated in such great style. As for channel four's plans to screen an interview with his murderer from his cell is utterly appalling and disgraceful as Mark Chapman just cannot be forfiven for what he did, never. I urge everyone to boycott channel four, and it them where it hurts in their advertising revenue since channel four does not deserve any revenue. Unless they abandon the screening of the interview.I do not want an interview with John Lennon's murderer shown anywhere on British television.On the 8th December 2005 we should celebrate the Life and Work Of the Late and Great John Lennon, and the music revolution brought about by John and the rest of the Beatles in British music. For which introduced the fact that young and new bands can write their own music. Thus putting an end to the old tin pan alley days that went before (tin pan alley was used to tame rock & roll). During this celebration Cynthia (John's first wife) should keep quiet about what a terrible father he was to Julian. Also do not forget the 29th November, and celebrate the life and work of the late and great George Harrison.
