The Next Generation Beatles?
This is so crazy it just might work. Imagine if the four Beatles' sons started a band.
The Telegraph has it:
Sir Paul McCartney's son James said he would be willing to form a 'next generation' Beatles with the sons of the other band members.The 34-year-old said he was "up for it" and John Lennon's son, Sean, and George Harrison's son, Dhani, had also shown support for the idea, although Ringo Starr's son, drummer Zak, was less keen.James told the BBC: "I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do."Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons and also a drummer] 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."
A little farther down in the story ...
James admitted that having the name McCartney was "a help" in the music business and it was "an honour" to be connected to his father.He said that as a schoolboy he'd dreamt of "being better than The Beatles", adding: "I'm not sure if I can do that. If anything, I would love to be equal to The Beatles - but even that's quite tough."
Yes, I suppose a name like "McCartney" would basically mean that the guy will never know what it's like to play for the bartender and the furniture while a bar owner fumes in the corner, mad at the band for not drawing a crowd to his smelly dive.
I don't know about that last comment, though, do you really think it would be that tough to equal the Beatles? You just shake your hair and go "Yeah yeah yeah," don't you?
