John Lennon tribute act Gary Gibson’s uncanny resemblance to the late John Lennon has created a furore wherever he has turned up, even amongst the ranks of those who knew and loved Lennon well.

A few years after the former Beatle was murdered,Gary was performing with his band The Cavern in New York and took a stroll close to New York’s Dakota Building to take a peek at the famous home of Lennon.

Suddenly he saw Yoko Ono wander out on her own. He casually walked across to wish her the best.

A startled Yoko Ono stared in shock at the “apparition” before her. Then, waving her hands in the air and moaning “No, No, No” she ran away in panic.

“I suppose it must have been a surprise as I had my hair in that brushed back Teddy-boy style that John had gone back to wearing.

“She certainly didn’t hang around to return my greeting,” said Gary with a grin.
