The Fight For ‘Lennon’

February 13, 2008

Howard got singer/songwriter, Lennon Murphy on the phone to discuss the lawsuit Yoko Ono has brought against her. Lennon explained that Lennon was her real name – which was why she owns the trademark for the name “Lennon.” Howard asked Lennon what Yoko was so upset about, but Lennon wasn’t sure, as she wasn’t trying to fool anyone into thinking she was related to John Lennon in any way. Howard and Fred agreed, citing Beck/Jeff Beck and Elvis (Presley) /Elvis Costello as similar cases.
