Interesting People - John Lennon

A Beatles fan is allegedly aiming to clone John Lennon from DNA extracted from a tooth.

(The tooth was sold in auction (which in itself is profoundly disturbing), and bought for just under £20,000 by Canadian dentist Michael Zuk.

He is now attempting to sequence the DNA, which is the first step in the cloning process. (He's also selling Lennon DNA pendants and tooth dust.)
