Paul McCartney's Son Keen to Form 'The Beatles - The Next Generation'


James McCartney


Noting that it would be really hard to be as good as The Beatles, James McCartney says, 'I would love to be equal to The Beatles.'

James McCartney is not shy when revealing his desire to form a "next generation" of his father's legendary band The Beatles. Talking to BBC, he opens up which Beatles offsprings who are keen to join the new band if it happens and who's likely to pass on the offer.

"I don't think it's something that Zak [Starkey] wants to do," James said referring to Ringo Starr's son. He adds, "Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons] would want to do it. I'd be up for it. Sean [Lennon] seemed to be into it, Dhani [Harrison] seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it."

James himself has been in music industry for quite a while. He played on two of his father's albums, worked with him in two mini albums, and recently played a gig of his own at the Cavern Club in Liverpool. He will next perform in Dublin before heading Stateside for a tour.

James admits having a famous father like Paul is more of a help than a hindrance, and he will always look up for him. "It's a help. It can be difficult standing on your own two feet but more than anything it's a help," he shares his thoughts on the matter.

He furthermore gushes about his father, "He's a genius, he's beyond genius, and he's a big inspiration. Very intellectual and obviously amazing at what he does, so it's great fun. He helps me get in tune with myself and be the best person that I can be."

Dreaming big of being better than The Beatles, James notes, "I don't really think I am quite as good as The Beatles or my father." He, however, adds, "If anything, I would love to be equal to The Beatles - but even that's quite tough."
