Harrison Jr. Breaks His Beatle Dad's Festival Ban

DHANI HARRISON is thrilled his band landed a spot at American rock festival Lollapalooza this summer (09) - because his BEATLE dad GEORGE banned him from partying there as a teen.
The 30-year-old always longed to attend the annual Chicago, Illinois event, but his father feared he'd go wild on drink and drugs.
Harrison Jr. - who will perform at the August (09) bash with his band Thenewno2 - says, "My dad never let me go to Lollapalooza. He thought I was going to end up with a shaved head, tattoos on my face and p**sed out of my head. I think he was afraid I'd take a load of psychedelic drugs like he did."

No, that's not Ruth Clapton. It's Beth Earl, Dhani's ex-girlfriend.
