(Updated June 23) In an interview published in today's special Wednesday edition, Yoko Ono told the German magazine Stern that she is considering the release of some previously unheard John Lennon music. She says, however, that the recordings should not be released in their current condition:"I have to wait for the right moment. He was a songwriter and he wanted the songs to be presented correctly. I have to think about it."Addressing the recent dispute over the Lennon-McCartney song writing credits, Yoko said that she and Sir Paul still maintain a business relationship. However, she added that she does not attend his concerts and "he also does not come to mine."
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph Beatles biographer, Keith Badman stated:"John was notorious for recording demos, only to then throw them into the back of the cupboard. Yoko has a lot of material and would have kept quiet if she didn't think it was good enough to be released." oko will be asking modern musicians to work on the songs - but I don't think Paul should expect a call."Earlier this month Sir Paul told the Glasgow Sunday Herald newspaper that he would like to make peace with Yoko (see June 1).
