Did Yoko use Devil’s Breath on John Lennon?
The answer is probably not, and Yoko’s influence to Lennon turned out to be true love. John Lennon let Yoko Ono control his life — he allowed her to decide on almost everything, such as finances. It’s a wise move, actually, when it came to money because Yoko was a banker’s daughter, and was very good at handling their finances and investing it.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s relationship was a teacher-pupil, according to him:
“It is a teacher-pupil relationship. That’s what people don’t understand. She’s the teacher and I’m the pupil.
“I’m the famous one, the one who’s supposed to know everything, but she’s my teacher. She taught me everything I fucking know.
“She was there when I was nowhere when I was the ‘nowhere man’. She’s my Don Juan [a reference to Carlos Castaneda’s Yaqui Indian teacher]. That’s what people don’t understand.
“She’s the one who told me to find a place to sit. And Don Juan doesn’t have to be charming; Don Juan just is. And what goes around Don Juan is irrelevant to Don Juan.
And as much as Lennon learned from her, Yoko’s the same thing:
“I learned a lot from him, too. It’s both ways. Maybe it’s that I have strength, a feminine strength. Because women develop it.
“In a relationship, I think women really have the inner wisdom and they’re carrying that, while men have sort of wisdom to cope with society, since they created it.”

The truth is Lennon allowed her to enter his life — and she was not the reason for the Fab Four break up. The Beatles were breaking internally during those times, each individual wanted something new in life. Their life as a group became very mundane that they wanted to break free from all the projects and work, and of course, they went for it, and thankfully as they broke up they have given us already gifts of the millennium – “The Beatles Legacy.”
