But this new album of John’s is a real peak, that’s higher than any other thing he has done. John: Thank you, dear. Do you think it is? Yeah, sure. I think it’s Sergeant Lennon. I don’t really know how it will sink in, where it will lie, in the spectrum of rock and roll and the generation and all the rest of it, but I know what it is. It’s something else, it’s another door.

Today would have been John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 49th wedding anniversary. The pair first met in November 1966 at a London gallery, where Ono was preparing for an exhibition of her work. They instantaneously connected and began a whirlwind (and at times controversial) romance. Less than three years later, on March 20, 1969, the couple married.
