McCartney said of Lennon: 'I look back on it now like a fan, how lucky was I to meet this strange teddy boy.'
It wasn't exactly instant karma when Beatle John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, heard about a Polish beverage company's new drink called "John Lemon". The company has now agreed to change its drink's name to "On Lemon", after lawyers acting for Ono wrote to distributors warning they faced costs of up to 5,000 euros ($5,998) a day and 500 euros for every bottle sold if they infringed the trademark. Lawyers acting for the beverage firm denied it had infringed the late star's rights, but Ono's lawyers pointed to a Facebook post from John Lemon Ireland, which featured an image of the iconic singer.
John Lennon’s life is to be chronicled in a comic book biography. The making of a new graphic novel titled ‘Lennon’ was revealed on what would have been the ‘Imagine’ hitmakers 76th birthday (09.10.16) and recalls the star’s life “from childhood to worldwide fame and his solo career and marriage to artist Yoko Ono”, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ‘Lennon’ was announced at New York Comic Con over the weekend and is re-worked from the 2010 novel of the same name by David Foenkinos, which focuses on a series of fictional counselling sessions between him and a therapist.
