Could Beatlemania see a revival through the offspring of the Fab Four?
James McCartney, son of Beatles singer Paul McCartney, said a new generation of The Beatles could be on the horizon, in an interview with the BBC published on its website on Monday.
The 34-year-old musician, who is following his famous father's footsteps into the industry, said that forming a band with fellow Beatles children Sean Lennon (son of John Lennon), Dhani Harrison (son of George Harrison) and Zak and Jason Starkey (Ringo Starr's sons) was not out of the question.

Yo Boomers - it’s over. Let it go.
And someone would want to listen to this band because...?
James McCartney sounds like a humble guy. I like Sean’s music (thank God it’s not Yoko’s son wanting in on it—ugh!).
Can a next generation of the Monkees be far behind?
I like Seans music (thank God its not Yokos son wanting in on itugh!).
lol. The original Monkees were insipid enough. I can’t imagine a 2nd generation group. lol.
Julian Lennon is John’s son from his first marriage.
Sean is John & Yoko’s son. (sorry to tell ya)
Bring back the Cowsills..
But this time call them the Cowpies.
This is a REALLY BAD idea!
And those Beatle’s offspring are just some of the ones we know about!
That could work...
Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and John Lennon were brilliant musicians and composers who providence put together at the right point in history to form arguably the greatest collaborative team in rock history. Add in Ringo's drumming, and the whole was far greater than the sum of its parts.
No disrespect to their kids, who might be good musicians, etc., but they're just not going to be able to recreate that kind of alchemy just because they received 50% of their DNA from a Beatle.
The title provides an excellent idea for the band's name:
So they leave out Julian Lennon, the only one of the Beatles kids who can actually sing? Yep...sounds like a plan.
Maybe they could do a remake of MUSKRAT LOVE. That’s my favorite Beatles song.
Julian Lennon is the talented one who had some hits back in the 80s (Valotte, Too Late for Goodbyes, Saltwater). He’s John and Cynthia’s son, and still releases some really nice music.
Sean is Yoko’s son. His talent...is dubious.
Shall we say . . . "Ono"-esque?
Julian Lennon is very talented and apparently a cool dude:
