Michael Zuk is just your average Canadian dentist with one simple ambition: to clone John Lennon using DNA extracted from the late singer's rotten molar...and then raise the clone as his own son!
Zuk purchased the molar last summer and is anxiously waiting for technology to catch up to his plans. We all know the best rock music is born of quaint, modest childhoods followed by clean and wholesome musical scholarship. Thus, Zuk assured UK's Channel 4 he would raise the Lennon Clone to be a musician like its original--just one with a healthier lifestyle.
"He would still be his exact duplicate but you know, hopefully keep him away from drugs and cigarettes, that kind of thing." Zuk reckons the DNA could be worth millions if sequenced. We'll just have to wait and see.
