The Beatles 2.0?
You know how every 5 years or so, there’s a new rock band out of the UK and they call them the new Beatles? Well, this time, it may be true.
Paul McCartney’s son, 34 year old James McCartney, was promoting his own music when he dropped the idea that the sons of the Fab Four would/could/maybe start their own band. A reboot if you will.
“I don’t think it’s something that Zak wants to do. Maybe Jason would want to do it,” McCartney said, referring to Zak and Jason Starkey, Ringo Starr’s sons. “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.”
When pressed on whether or not the band realistically could happen, McCartney said, “Yeah, hopefully, naturally. I don’t know, you’d have to wait and see. The will of God, nature’s support, I guess. So yeah, maybe.” [THR]
Dhani is a talented guitar player like his dad George, and even looks just like him, frighteningly so. The Starr boys are also talented drummers, both having successful careers in music, already. But, Sean? Not so much. I know some people want to tell me he has his own “successful” music career, but who are you trying to fool? What about JULIAN!? You know, John’s son who IS FREAKING TALENTED that no one seems to talk about?!?!
This would be a good novelty band, but I doubt they’d be any good playing together. Plus everyone would want them to be just like their dads. And we all know how well that goes, right Julian?
