Controversial Album Covers II (Pt. 7)

Year: 1981

Yoko Ono: Season of Glass

The Problem: The cover caused controversy when it was admitted that the blood-stained glasses on the front cover were actually those of John Lennon which he was wearing after he was murdered, with the blood-stains being his own. Ono once explained that she chose this cover to “remind people that John didn’t just die… he had been murdered”.

My Take: It all reminds me of a poem Iris wrote about John Lennon’s death. In fact, you can check it out right here.
