Yoko Ono rocks into old age

John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono - who is 76 years old - wants to keep making music for another few decades so she can really ''hammer in'' her musical legacy

Yoko Ono is planning to make music until she is at least 96 years old.

The 76-year-old musician - the widow of Beatles singer John Lennon - is currently "focusing" her creativity in preparation for a "few decades" of frenzied recording.

She said: "I'm glad I didn't die when I was 70. I haven't done enough even now. It's going to be fantastic. I don't have another 50 years so I'm getting more focused because I really want to hammer it in."

Yoko is convinced she has "a lot to add" to the music industry, but admits the biggest "musical revolution" of recent times was sparked by her late husband and the rest of The Beatles - George Harrison, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr

She explained: "When John was trying to put the group together, only a few people could play guitar. Now there's not one boy who can't play guitar. The first revolution was started with John and his three friends and it really spread."
