First of all, wow. Those guys in the photo sure are the sons of Beatles, aren’t they?
Second of all, there’s a chance they could be forming a band.
That news comes from an interview the BBC did with James McCartney, son of Beatles frontman Paul McCartney. James, who played guitar on two of his father’s most recent albums, said he’d like to record and tour with other Beatles offspring. (Darn. The name “The Offspring” is already taken. How about “Here Comes the Son?”)
He’d certainly have a qualified bunch to work with. Sean Lennon, Zak Starkey and Dhani Harrison are all musicians — and Starkey is the unofficial drummer for The Who.
McCartney told the BBC that getting Starkey on board would be the toughest part of forming the band.
“I don’t think it’s something that Zak wants to do,” he said. “Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons who also plays drums] would want to do it. I’d be up for it. Sean seemed to be into it, Dhani seemed to be into it. I’d be happy to do it.”
