Yoko Ono Tries to Stifle John Lennon-Themed Bar in Scotland

More than 31 years after an assassin's bullet felled John Lennon, his wife is still trying to control his career.

Today, Exclaim reported that Yoko Ono, in a move worthy of the Disney legal gestapo, has assembled her henchman to put the smack down on a John Lennon-themed bar and its owner Mike Craig.

Apparently, Craig's watering hole--located in Dundee, Scotland--houses a large collection of Beatles memorabilia and, according to the baffled proprietor, has been called Lennons for the past five years. Yoko is demanding via her legal team that Craig change the name of his bar and remove the collectibles within 14 days. Yikes.

 This development seems all the more baffling when viewing a YouTube video of Yoko sending out a request for video tributes to John on his 70th birthday and gushing about spreading peace and flashing the sign of the deuce. The goal of the request she said was to keep Lennon's memory alive--it seems Yoko genuinley wants to do this--as long as she is in control of how it's done.

We find it interesting that during the Youtube spot she was wearing her trademark sunglasses, despite the fact the room was well-lit. If, as they say, eyes are the gateway to the soul, one has to wonder if Yoko is hiding hers, or the fact that she doesn't have one.

Anyone follow her twitter? http://twitter.com/#!/yokoonoAn example: A man who thinks a room is filled with things can only say Be careful

What a freak. She pretends to be such a transcendent being but she's concerned about locking down a Lennon themed bar? The bar owner should reply that the bar is not filled with things, the bar is just a frame of mind.

Please, Yoko, just die already. You're an embarrassment.

Another example of how important it is to consider PR ramifications prior to firing off cease and desists!

Yoko should have been the one shot down in the Dakota Apartments

How could you say such a thing? I don't like what she did either but saying she deserves to die is really over the top!

The fact that she listens to her own music is punishment enough! ;-)
