RED DEER, Alberta, April 10 (UPI) -- All you need is love -- and maybe an old tooth…

During an episode of Dead Famous DNA on Channel 4 in England, Canadian dentist Dr. Michael Zuk revealed that he plans on using DNA from one of John Lennon’s teeth to make a clone baby that he can raise as his own.

“If there is enough DNA to sequence it, it could be basically genetic real estate,” Zuk said. “My goal is to own John Lennon’s DNA.”

Zuk purchased Lennon’s molar for $33,000 when it was put up for auction about three years ago.

The doctor believes that owning the tooth grants him the rights to Lennon’s DNA.

“I think I can, because of the laws,” Dr. Zuk said. “Depends on where you do these things. If it can’t be done in one country, you can do these things in another. To have John Lennon’s DNA sequence outside of the family protection to me, and full access to it, is worth millions.”

He even has a plan about how to make sure the test-tube baby becomes a success.

“He would still be his exact duplicate but you know, hopefully keep him away from drugs and cigarettes, that kind of thing,” Zuk said. “But you know, guitar lessons wouldn’t hurt anyone right?”

Poses some issues to me.

Was the ability to make music like Lennon did, genetic or acquired?

All of the Beatles made good music, after they broke up. Lennon perhaps most in the direction of a soloist.

If Lennon can be replicated, there will be nothing unique and exceptional about the clones.

Imagine?
