Sean Lennon - Sean Lennon Baffled By Plan To Clone Beatles Star

Sean Lennon has branded plans to clone his father John Lennon from Dna extracted from the late rocker's teeth as "bizarre, futuristic and dystopian".

Last year (13) Canadian dentist Michael Zuk handed a rotten molar from The Beatles legend to scientists so they could extract Lennon's unique genetic code.

Zuk - who purchased the tooth for $30,000 (£20,000) - hopes experts will one day be able to clone the Imagine singer.

However, Lennon's son Sean is unsure of the project and hinted it could end up the subject of legal action.

He tells Nme magazine, "It's interesting thinking about what rights we have over our discarded Dna. Cloning in general is a legal area that's bizarre, futuristic and dystopian - and this about my dad's tooth definitely falls into that category."

I wouldn't worry about it, Sean. "Jurassic Park" is science fantasy.
