1969: A month after marrying Yoko Ono, John Lennon legally adds "Ono" as one of his middle names, becoming John Winston Ono Lennon. A brief ceremony marking the name change took place on the roof of the Apple Corps building, made famous three months earlier by The Beatles' "Let It Be" rooftop concert.
