John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono has ruled out using modern technology to perform a beyond-the-grave "duet" with the late Beatles legend. Janet Jackson wowed the audience at the MTV Video Music Awards last September by using a screen projection of her late brother Michael to sing a song with him. But Ono has dismissed suggestions she could do the same with a Lennon track - insisting it would sully his legend. In an interview with the Indie Rock Cafe website, she says, "I respect too much John's music to do something like that." In other news, before the end of the decade, Beatles fans will have a new book in their hands: a memoir by Yoko Ono revolving around her life with John Lennon. According to Yahoo! UK, the autobiography will also focus on the duo's intense relationship, the myths surrounding her role in the Beatles' breakup, the bed-in for peace, Lennon's infamous "Lost Weekend" and more. Thanks for the report to Yahoo! News.
