And Sean's not the only one to take on his father's look at times. Julian has had his moments, with no help from Yoko.

My favourite beatles Child would be Dhani Harrison because i love the way he talks about his dad in George Harrison: Living in a material world.

I never put in my 2 cents on this thread so here I go (and I revive thee thread)

It's pretty obvious who my favourite Beatles child is Jason  Dhani

I like Dhani's music, his personality, the fact that he looks like George isn't a bad thing either a-hard-days-night-george-10 He's closely followed by Julian though (daww Julian seems like such a dote) if I liked Julian's music he would be seriously competing with Dhani but I think Julian's music has aged quite badly, sorry Julian :/

Julian "made it" in the music world but he isn't really listened to today, how many 12 year olds do you hear saying "Jaysus just listened to Valotte for the 5th time in a row, great album...". Dhani and thenewno2 would  probably be the closest to "making it" and they could have if the "Beautiful Creatures" movie hadn't been such a "commercial flop" (I thought it was an okay-ish movie, the boys did a great job on the soundtrack). But I don't think they'll ever make it into the "mainstream" but Dhani prefers that anyways he wants to be "successful but not famous" and I think he's doing a damn good job on it.

Sean however, is disliked by quite a few people, I don't have any problem with the boy, he seems sound enough even if he can't spell "rhythm" :P I don't really listen to GOASTT or his solo music but I liked his work on the "A Monster in Paris" soundtrack. I don't like his girlfriend Charlotte though, she seems a bit "dim" :/

And that is my rant for the day

While it can't be denied that who Zak's dad is a big secret, it's not something he's made a big thing of. He can do nothing if something gets printed mentioning who his father is, or if some people are aware of the connection. I have had plenty of friends over the years who, when watching him with The Who or someone, have been totally unaware of who his father is until I've pointed it out.

As to whether it is possible for the Beatle children like Julian, Sean, Dhani and James to pass under the radar and release material without who they are coming into it.

Well, Paul's managed it twice!

For the longest time, there were many doubts about the 1977 Thrillington album. Nobody was really sure if Percy "Thrills" Thrillington was really Paul or not, and many dismissed the idea out of hand. The success of the ruse was shown by the massive jump in value of the original record when Paul finally confirmed it was him in 1989.

I bought a copy of the album in the mid-80s at a second-hand record shop called Beanos as an oddity. It cost me £15. Just a few years later, after Paul had spoken, I saw it selling in the same shop for over £100.

Though not for as long, he also - along with Youth - played the same stroke with the first Fireman album in 1993. I can remember the weeks of debate in the wake of its release about who it was, and the "It's too NOW, to be Paul", until EMI confirmed a little while after the release - and after it had charted - who the Fireman were.

Then, back in the '60s, there was Bernard Webb - who wrote Woman for Peter & Gordan. An attempt to find out whether a song given away would succeed without the "Lennon/McCartney" moniker attached.

Paul has always liked the idea of his work being judged without the baggage.

If you want to discuss which of The Beatles children is your favorite or discuss their talents/characters/accomplishments, then use the thread titled Which of The Beatles Children Is Your Favorite?

Use this thread for general questions or comments about them.

Okay...of all the Beatles offspring, who is the most talented? And, then, who do you think should just keep it to him or herself that his or her dad was a Beatle?

I can't believe there was ever really any doubt that Paul "was" Thrillington, to the extent that anybody even cared. Who else would conceive of the idea to release an instrumental orchestrated version of his then-critically unacclaimed Ram album? And come up with silly name like Percy "Thrills" Thrillington? The whole concept seems like the product of potheaded Paul whimsy!

Now, the Fireman thing, that was totally under the radar, no question.

I played the Firemen's music on my show. Totally fascinating to listen to, especially if you're into ambient music.
