The Beatles' Sons Form 'Next-Gen' Band?
The sons of The Beatles could be forming a band of their own, according to James McCartney. In a BBC interview, James said they were considering a "next generation" group, and suggested that several other Beatles' sons had also expressed interest in the idea. The only son that isn't into the idea is Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey, says James: "I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do. Maybe Jason [drummer and one of Starr's other sons] would want to do it. 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." He said the idea had been discussed, and when pushed for a confirmation, he said "Yeah, hopefully, naturally... you'd have to wait and see." While we love the idea, it sounds too uncertain to get excited about just yet. Each of the potential members are busy with their own projects, and James seems to have partially retracted his comments with a message on his Facebook page, where he reminds fans that he is busy touring the UK and US with his own music this year: "Looks like quite some attention being given to my BBC interview! Honestly, I was just thinking out loud about playing with Beatles family friends, nothing more. My band's going to be on tour in the UK and US for most of this year, and the shows are going great!" Perhaps fan support on the idea will help it push forwards, and it's clear that most of the sons would give it serious consideration.
