Beatles' sons to form band? James McCartney speaks (Photo)
While "The Beatles" have an everlasting legacy, James McCartney says it's possible that the Beatles' sons could collaborate.
James McCartney, 34, is the only son of the famous Beatles frontman Paul McCartney. When asked about the possibility of forming a group made up of him and Sean Lennon, son of the late John Lennon, George Harrison's son Dhani Harrison and Rigo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, James McCartney did not rule out the idea.
"I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do," McCartney told BBC News. "Maybe Jason would want to do it," he added, citing Starr's other son, a drummer. "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."
James McCartney has already collaborated with his father, playing guitar on Paul McCartney's albums "Flaming Pie" and "Driving Rain." While the young musician has a band of his own, he told the outlet that forming a next generation Beatles band could happen someday but he hopes it would happen naturually.
"Yeah, hopefully, naturally," he added. "I don't know, you'd have to wait and see. The will of God, nature's support, I guess. So yeah, maybe."
Paul McCartney started the Beatles with John Lennon in late 1962. The group released iconic rock albums like of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Abbey Road" and Let It Be." The band officially broke up in 1970.
In February, Paul McCartney became the fourth and final Beatle to receive star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 2010,the Beatles' extensive catalog became available for legal download on iTunes. At the time, it included the band's 13 studio albums, several compilations and a box set.
