Will the Beatles’ Sons Really Form Their Own Band? [Videos of each]
This is a bad idea. What would they do? If they do original music, Sean Lennon bombed with his music, Dhani Harrison has only worked on his father’s music, James McCartney has no track record with music, and Jason Starkey only played in Ringo’s band maybe a couple of times and hasn’t even made a name for himself, let alone public pictures.
So, do they make money being the Beatles kids? If they sound like the Beatles it will make a ton of money for a year. Lonely existence if you ask me, making a ton of money being your Dad.
I think none of these kids have anything going for them so they will cash in their name. The only smart one of the bunch. Zac Starkey, one of Ringo’s kids who said getting the Beatle kids together is a bad idea.This is the same man that was asked to join THE WHO, and turned it down because they were calling him Ringo’s kid.
The only one that has any right to be in this band is Julian Lennon, not only is he a great writer, musician and human being, but he has a musical track record.
Paul’s son, 34-year-old singer/songwriter James McCartney, told the BBC that he’d be up for forming a band with some other musically inclined Scions of the Fabs. The group could be called “The Beatles—The Next Generation,” the BBC interview helpfully suggested.
James even suggested that he’d had discussions with other Beatle offspring that could result in a quorum…. with one major holdout to contend with.
“I don’t think it’s something that Zak wants to do,” said McCartney, referring to Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey, a highly successful drummer. “Maybe Jason would want to do it,” he added, throwing the name of a lesser-known Starr offspring into the mix. “I’d be up for it. Sean (Lennon) seemed to be into it, Dhani (Harrison) seemed to be into it. I’d be happy to do it.”
While acknowledging that the idea didn’t seem to have much traction at the moment, he said it could still happen with “the will of God (and) nature’s support… So yeah, maybe.”
Go, Lil Beatles!
Here’s videos of all the Beatles kids, you be the judge.
