  5. The legendary Yoko Ono won the lifetime achievement award at this year’s Mojo Magazine awards, held in London on June 11, 2009.

    The award was the final award of the night and saw an emotional speech from Ono in response to a tribute film shown at the awards and a speech by Mojo editor Phil Alexander, who commented: “Yoko Ono helped change music as we know it….first by introducing avant-garde sensibilities to her husband and secondly, just as significantly, by continuing to push the boundaries of what was deemed the normal way after that. She is a huge influence on modern music and this award recognizes her inspirational qualities and ongoing questing. Yoko Ono is unique and we are thrilled to commemorate her lifetime on the frontline”.

    The Mojo award comes in a week when Ono topped the US club charts for the fifth time, this time with her song I’m Not Getting Enough (bit.ly/onoinge), and also received the prestigious Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award at the Venice Biennale.

    On accepting the Mojo award, Ono said:

    “Thank you very much for this incredible accolade. I feel blessed that, after so many years and decades, my work is getting recognition in such a diverse way. John would have been very proud of me tonight. Thank you!”

    On Sunday, Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band make their debut UK performance at the Royal Festival Hall in London, as part of Ornette Coleman’s Meltdown. This performance will feature appearances by guest artists including Ornette Coleman, Antony Hegarty and Mark Ronson.
    Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band includes Sean Lennon, Cornelius and Yuka Honda.

    Yoko Ono / Plastic Ono Band's new 4 Track EP "DON'T STOP ME!" is out now, available at the iTunes Music Store.
