Yoko Ono thinks the new Beatles video game will help create "a world of peace".

The 76-year-old widow of 'Fab Four'singer John Lennon has praised Beatles Rock Band - which was released earlier this month - because it merges music and art to create amazing "healing vibrations".

She explained: "I think game is the second revolution. In the beginning they made a splash with their music; with the video game we're going to create a planet of music and art.

"Music and art are both very interesting healing vibrations, and with that vibration we can create the world we've always wanted, a world of peace."

Even though Lennon has been dead for nearly 30 years, Yoko claims she is still committed to ensuring he is "treated right".

She said: "I'm thankful that I'm in a position to look after John's legacy, because that's what he wanted me to do.

"We were both artists and understood exactly what it's like when your work isn't treated properly. I'm trying my best to make sure his is treated right."

When it comes to her own life, the provocative musician hopes she is forgotten as soon as she dies.

She told Britain's Observer newspaper: "What's written about me in newspapers is usually fiction. With the press you have to learn to read between the lines.

"I don't mind if no one remembers me. If I'm going to be remembered by the fictional notes the press wrote about me, why would I want to be remembered at all?"
