John gave himself a new middle name – ‘Ono’ – and had a little celebration on the roof of the Apple building. Afterwards he went and recorded his heartbeat for use on ‘The Wedding Album’. “Yoko changed hers for me,” he said, “and I’ve changed mine for her. One for both, and both for each other. She has a ring. I have a ring. It gives us nine ‘O’s between us, which is good luck. Ten would not be good luck. Three names is enough for anyone. Four would be greedy.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
