Had no idea this even took place and quite frankly I'm disgusted at this "entrepreneur" attempting to capitalize on the death of a legendary musician that in all rights should be among the living today.

Tragically, John Lennon's fame ended his life in New York City on December 8, 1980.  He was only 40 years old when he was gunned down in cold blood, and sadly Mark David Chapman, his executioner, still breathes air everyday.  Lennon, out of the goodness of his heart, autographed a copy of the newly released "Double Fantasy" album for Chapman, just hours before his death.

Now, a dentist in Canada, by the name of Michael Zuk, wants to clone the great Beatle by extracting DNA from a Lennon tooth that he bought at auction.  As the story goes, Lennon gave the now famous tooth to his housekeeper, who in-turn gave it her daughter at Lennon's suggestion.  It was finally sold for more than 30 large ($30,000)!

Zuk is waging a no-holds barred campaign.  In addition to launching a website, he's sending out press releases as if he is actually in charge of something.

Would hate to have a toothache, and find Dr. Zuk was the only dentist available.  As for the good doctor's gumption, I say he's just spinning his "wheels":
