Ono Praises Sweet Gallagher

JOHN LENNON's widow YOKO ONO thinks OASIS star LIAM GALLAGHER's devotion to her late husband's legacy is "sweet".

Ono, who was married to THE BEATLES legend for 11 years before he was assassinated in 1980, was particularly touched when the WONDERWALL singer named his baby son Lennon in tribute.

She says, "I love that people do covers of John's tracks. I'm very grateful to the artists for carrying on John's music and his message.

"I think it's very sweet that Liam Gallagher was so influenced by John and wants to carry his memory on his own music.

"I know people have commented that they look alike but I wouldn't say that Liam looks like John, but it's still very sweet that he wants to carry on John's spirit."
