According to posts 5 and 6, there was a post before this one in this thread that contained a poll that some people found objectional. The OP deleted the post with the poll.

If you want to talk about your favorite Beatles child, do so here in this thread. If you want to ask a question about them in general or make a general comment about them, we have a repurposed thread for that: Beatles Offspring.

I don't know very much about the beatles children so I took james because he played some awesome guitar on flaming pie

Julian purely because i like two of his songs; Too Late For Goodbyes and Saltwater. I know next to nothing about any of them.

I don't know a whole lot about them either, but I like Dhani Harrison. He's a great musician, and a splitting image of his father (who I find adorable...). Thanks for posting anyway, you guys!

I find this poll to be little bit on the cruel side, especially the exclusion of Beatrice. I voted for Dhani, though, because his is the only Beatle-kid music I like to listen to. ( him looking like a younger version of George isn't doing any bad, either...)

I think all of the kids turned out really well. I love Stella because she is a great designer, and she has spunk (It's about f**king time! shirt that she wore to Paul's induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). I like Dhani because he was a physics major...also he looks just like George.

I like the rest of them, too, though. They are all so well-behaved and successful. Can't wait to see how little Beatrice turns out, even if she is like Heather and chooses to remain private and out of the spotlight.

Interesting factoid about Ringo's daughter, Lee, is that she has triplets and survived brain tumors.

I couldn't even name 'em all until I found this useful webpage: http://beatlechildren.tripod.c.....index.html
It's full of useful info, such as the fact that only one Beatle child has not been involved with the music or fashion worlds as a career (so far): 8-year old Beatrice. The site also covers Beatle stepchildren, for which I'm grateful for introducing me to the amazing name "Countess Francesca McKnight Donatella Romana Gregorini de Savingniano di Romagnia!" (Barbara Bach's daughter.)

I can't really say I have a favourite after reading all those profiles, since I'm woefully unfamiliar with 97% of whatever music they've made (and 100% of whatever they've done in the fashion world.) But I admire Zac Starkey for donating bone marrow to try and save his mother's life.

I shouldn't pick a favorite, but most of them seem like good people. Dhani reminds me of his father and is truly talented. Julian is a great singer and Zak is a great drummer. I will try to be nice, but the only one I slightly dislike is Sean. I read an article that Yoko won't let him get a tattoo because he could never erase it. Has she ever heard of tattoo removal? She could afford it. I wonder if he'll marry. Who would want Yoko to be their mother-in-law?

Dhani is mine. Lol, I have even named my son Dhani!!  Not just because he is Georges son at all, thenewno2 are a great band, with 2 really good albums under the belt, and surely more to come. He rocked with Fistful of Mercy too.. Was the major driving force behind The Beatles "Rock Band" games, amazing producer (think Brainwashed - co-produced with Jeff Lynne), and has played numerous Beatle tunes on stage :) I could go on, but I'm sure get the idea, lol

Dhani Harrison / Ayrton Wilbury... My choice by far...

I've tried to find Dhani singing Beatles stuff on Youtube but I can't find anything. Maybe I'm just dumb lol. Anyway, do you happen to have a link?

 

I don't know much about the children. I think Stella is awesome with her style and designs, I think Zak is a great drummer and the fact he donated bone marrow to his mom is also admirable. Dhani seems like a great guy, haven't checked his music but in intervies he seems awesome and I like him for thinking of RB. 

I don't really know a lot about the others, never seen interviews. Oh wait, I have seen interviews with Julian and Sean, but I couldn't really judge. Julian was a bit bitter, which I understand. Sean seems a bit like an arrogant twat though. But for all we know, he might be the nicest person in the world.

 With the most obvious being his performance on the Concert for George... I have copy of him doing 'Birthday' (w/Conan O'brien on bass, of all ppl, lol). I also have somewhere, a copy of him doing Gimme some Truth, think its on a Lennon tribute album...

I like all of them, but I'm not so keen on Sean for the reasons already posted. I guess Dhani and Stella are my favourites. Dhani seems like such a great person, and I loved the story Martin Short told about him on Jimmy Fallon, and Stella is so cool.

Although I don't really pay too much attention on their children, I think either Dhani or Zak is the most musically talented of them all. Stella is talented on a different field nonetheless.

Dhani is adorable, looks just like his dad.  Seems super sweet too.  

Is anyone else disappointed that this isn't the case with James McCartney?  He does look like Paul, but not like with Dhani.  ahdn_paul_01Damn it.

Definitely like Stella for her cruelty-free designs.  a-hard-days-night-paul-8

A little, yeah. Also, his hair is too thin for him to have it long, he looked better with short hair, not that I even care, but..

My favorite Beatle kid is either Julian or Stella. I'm not a huge fan of Julian's music, I just like him, I don't know why. I like Stella because of her clothes, and because I like her name, hence me naming my dog Stella.

I like Zak cause he was a good replacement for Keith Moon in The Who, my other favorite band.

Stella cause she has spunk

Overall, as stated in the comments above, the children seem like very nice people general.

I like Paul's kids and am really impressed with their accomplishments.  Like LHL said...it's a real shame that James doesn't look more like his Dad!  a-hard-days-night-george-10

I like Julian best, however.  I've read a lot about him, liked his music when I was younger and love how much he looks like his Dad.  I have always felt sorry for him too...just by the timing of his birth...he really never had a chance to bond or get to know John well :(   It's a shame.  I think Julian is a really good person too. 

Interesting thread....

I really don't like it how Yoko tries to make Sean look like John (unless he does it himself, that is). What's with the long hair and the granny glasses? If Sean is talented as a musician, he'll make it without trying to be someone else, or trying to remind everyone who is father is/was. What's happened to originality?

I like them all *EXCEPT* for Sean, who seems to be cut more from his mom's cloth than anything like his dad (which, I suppose, is understandable since he only had 5 years with his dad).
