 VH1.com : Yoko Ono : Biography - Urge Music Downloads
Ono's own work as an artist and musician didn't mitigate the public's enmity toward her; to the average man on the street, her avant-garde conceptual art seemed bizarre and ridiculous, and her highly experimental rock & roll (which often spotlighted her primal, caterwauling vocals) was simply too abrasive to tolerate.
Ono performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall for a second time in early 1965, and debuted her seminal "Cut Piece," in which audience members were invited to cut off pieces of her clothing with scissors.
Ono followed it in 1982 with the more hopeful, pop-oriented It's Alright (I See Rainbows), and had a minor success with the single "Never Say Goodbye." 1985's Starpeace continued that optimistic trend, and teamed Ono with producer Bill Laswell and other downtown New York scenesters, but failed to connect as her previous two efforts had.

Ono has mentioned in interviews that her parents left the upbringing of her and her younger brother to nannies; her parents were often distant, emotionally and physically.
Ono and her siblings fled to the countryside, and were forced to beg for food while pulling their belongings in a wheelbarrow; it was during this period in her life that Ono claims she developed her "aggressive" attitude and that local children taunted the once well-to-do Yoko and her brother, now reduced to poverty.
Ono is also sometimes blamed for Lennon's heroin addiction in the late 1960s and early 1970s, as she is widely believed to have introduced him to the drug.
