they've definitely got the look.
James McCartney, who strongly resembles his father, said he had "dreamt of being better than The Beatles".
then they're spot on
have they got the talent?
Don't you think each one'll think they're the best of the lot - while three will secretly bag on the drummer. And one'll think he's inherited the badass gene. And one'll peacably feel slighted like his old man did. And one'll fail miserably while trying to prove something to his sister, while his old man will pathetically big up him at every turn. Keep Tom Petty's kid & Jeff Lynne's kid, Jakob Dylan & an Orbison on speed dial.
and I'll gladly shoot Sean Lennon in the stomach once they break up
James looks like Paul if he'd been turned to the dark side of the force!
Maybe they'll play Hey Jude at him when he tantrums?
Imagine the pressures put on you by your parents... now imagine your parents are the most successful musicians in pop culture history. How can you ever hope to succeed. No wonder they have terrible ideas.
I'd never even heard of Wilson-Phillips and according to wikipedia they're the best selling female group of all time.
That makes a little more sense... Still 10 million copies of the debut album..
That'd be AWESOME if they formed a band. It'd be so terrible, so awful, so laughable...they'd be the perfect band to soundtrack the End of The World.
if they got remotely successful I'd totally lose my faith in the human race.
the band Turbogeist should be cited as one of the reasons that offspring of 'musical legends' (sir mick in this case) should be banned from music on a most basic level. Thank you.
There's no harm in speculating, but the best way to do this would have been to have tried it first and then told people about it, so they could at least say "yes, we had a go but we sounded like radiohead so gave up" or "our dads will be s***ing themselves in fear, we're brilliant".
I have a very similar face to James McCartney - if I put on a few pounds and grew long wispy hair.
When I read the article, I thought that name was just a dumb bit of shorthand dreamed up by the journalist. Then I found out that it was McCartney's actual suggestion. Fookin hell.
Because you know, fuck that guy
Something to do with animals that was over-mawkish and horrible. And oddly I don't mean Earthsong.
They were a family: the father was George, the mother was Ringo, the elder son was John, and the younger son was Paul. They were wearing perfect replica outfits (mop top/collarless jackets phase) and had all the gear - Rickenbackers, left-handed Hofner violin bass, Vox amps etc, must have cost them a fortune. "Paul" was also about 10 yrs old and had Downs Syndrome. They'd learned all the songs from sheet music, had the arrangements weirdly note-perfect but were about 5 years of solid practice away from any semblance of competence, just really gumby and flailing and out of time and out of tune and yet somehow totally awesome.
I dunno, just thought the anecdote belonged in this thread.
she said "They should be called Beatlejuice"
I laughed for 5 mins, and my tea got cold.
but its a fucking brilliant idea!
i think "If anything, I would love to be equal to The Beatles" is my quote of the year. no point setting yourself an impossible bar, right guys?
also, the poll at the bottom:
"Do you think it is a good idea for the sons of the Beatles to form a band together?
Yes, they should Come Together - 47%
No, they should Get Back to their day jobs - 53%"
Can't wait for that abject boredom and resentment to trickle into the music, should be great
Please??? Just for one song?
The very idea that 4 wholly non-descript individuals could will themselves into greatness through the shadow of their fathers legacy has a timeless comic potential. Someone needs to start documenting this shit now.
