The Beatles' Sons Refuse To 'Let It Be': Consider Forming Band
Maybe they just couldn't 'Let It Be,' or perhaps they just felt the time was finally right to 'Come Together,' but either way there could be a new Beatles for the 21st century, if an interview with the son of Paul Mccartney, James Mccartney is to be believed.
Speaking to the BBC, the 34 year-old - who sold out the famous Cavern Club this week - said that he, Sean Lennon and Dhani Harrison had contemplated forming a band together, with a hope that Zak Starkey might like to get involved too. Admitting to the network that the idea had been mooted "a little bit," he commented "I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do. Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons and also drummer] would want to do it. I'd be up for it. Sean seemed to be into it, Dhani seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it." He furthered, upon being asked if he genuinely thought it could happen "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."
Starkey, unlike the other three, has had genuine success in his own musical right, having drummed regularly for The Who since the 1990s and playing briefly with Oasis. It's hard to see what he'd have to gain from joining such a group. However as John, Paul, Ringo and George once claimed 'Tomorrow Never Knows.'
