That's right! You've heard correct. The band that was started by John Lennon while The Beatles were still together is being resurrected by Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono. This week they'll be releasing a brand new EP entitled "Don't Stop Me!". The Plastic Ono Band will also be playing their first concert on June 14, 2009 at The Royal Festival Hall in the UK.
The Plastic Ono Band always consisted of various musicians like Eric Clapton, Alan White and Klaus Voorman, and David Peel who played various live performances with The Plastic Ono Band. The line up for 2009 is Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Mark Ronson (Producer), Cornelius and Yuka Honda (from the group Cibo Mato).
