Yoko Ono is a Japanese born multimedia artist, singer, songwriter and peace activist who has spent most of her life based in New York, USA. Yoko is probably best known for being married to former Beatle, John Lennon, and was, at one time, known as "the most hated woman in the world" due to the popular, and false, belief that she was responsible for the break-up of the Beatles. She collaborated with Lennon on much of her early music, sometimes as John & Yoko and sometimes as The Plastic Ono Band, but has also produced a large body of solo work, both before and after Lennon's death. Yoko's first public music performance was in 1961, years before she met Lennon, and she is still performing today, at 81 years of age, a music career, and a body of work, that far out-shadows many more popular performers and has influenced artists as diverse as B-52's and Meredith Monk.
Don’t Worry, Kyoko, originally called Don’t Worry, Kyoko (Mummy’s Only Looking for Her Hand in the Snow), was originally released as the b-side of John Lennon‘s Cold Turkey single. It was later included on Yoko‘s 1971 solo album, Fly. It concerns the custody battle between Yoko and her ex-husband, Anthony Cox, over their daughter, Kyoko. It was a very acrimonious battle that ended with Cox winning custody and then disappearing with Kyoko so that Yoko was not able to see her daughter again until 30 years later, in 1998, despite having spent the intervening years searching for her. This performance was recorded Toronto Rock and Roll Revival on 13 September, 1969 and featured on the album Live Peace in Toronto 1969.
