Are the Beatles getting back together? No. But it is possible their offspring might:
A new sort of hope has drifted entirely toward the Beatle descendants. 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.”
Paul’s son, James looks a little like a teletubbie. I wonder if they’ll be playing kid’s music?
