Here's a new track from James (I amn't a big fan of his, I think he isn't cut-out for 'live' performances but he's a nice studio musician, granted I haven't watched any of his new live material in about 2 years). It has the wonderful Dhani on it singing backing vocals and playing guitar so that's lovely.

 

It's a nice little ditty, a good earworm.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Hey, that's pretty cool. Not bad at all. 

The ending chord was very Beatlesque I thought.

Could be inaccurate but according some media outlets Julian Lennon has a net worth of $40 million and James McCartney has a net worth of $20 million  - Sean Lennon apparently has a net worth of $200 million

Can I just say that I dont like the Daily Mail's wording in the above quote. The sentences "Things got worse when John was murdered and Julian was just 17. For Julian wasn’t named in John’s will and it took him 16 years — and the threat of a prolonged court case — to persuade Yoko to hand over any of the Beatles’s millions." make it read like Julian's big loss was the money not his dad and I think thats bullshit and utterly shitty to suggest whether accidental, unintentional or not.

I had no idea it was even possible for children to inherit nothing. In the Netherlands, it's impossible to take your children out of your will.

Yeah you can lock your kids out so they inherit nothing, but often they sue.

John wasn't really much of a dad anyways, so maybe the money was the bigger loss (though I'm sure if it was Jules would never be able to admit it to himself anyways)

I don't really understand why it's never mentioned that John gave Cyn and Julian 2% of his shares in the Northern Songs. I read it in Peter Doggett's book. Doesn't that amount to anything?

From the Express

Are you ready for Beatles 2?

James McCartney, Sir Paul’s only son, has just released a new single featuring George Harrison ’s lookalike musician son Dhani Harrison on guitar and vocals.

Too Hard comes from James’s forthcoming album The Blackberry Train, due out on May 6.

US showbusiness commentator Roger Friedman says approvingly of the track: “James has the genes and he also has a nice independent sound.

Too Hard is catchy as heck.” Now all they need is Ringo’s son Zac Starkey, 50, to join on drums, with John Lennon ’s sons Julian, 52, and Sean Lennon, 40 on vocals, and it’s Beatles 2.

Singer-songwriter James, 38, told the BBC in 2012 he had mooted the idea “a little bit” of forming a “next generation” version of the Beatles with Sean and Dhani.

James has played guitar and drums on some of his father’s solo albums, including Flaming Pie (1997) and Driving Rain (2001)and cowritten a few of his father’s songs.

Man, reading this article has really reminded me how it must really suck to be a Beatle's son sometimes.

^ The poor fellas, watching any interview with them, the second their father is mentioned all of them (bar Julian for some reason) almost roll their eyes and try and change the topic as quickly as possible. Sean in particular gets really ticked off if an interviewer spends more time talking about John than himself and rightly so!

I kind of feel sorry for the interviewer as those above him will have put enormous pressure to ask Sean endless questions about John and hardly any about Sean's music. However I'm amazed and impressed that Sean sat there for so long talking about John and was so restrained by the end; would have been so much easier to have just walked off in a mood berating the interview.

It's funny how the daughters don't get it quite as bad. Of course, they're not in music. I wonder why? Is it just chance that none of Paul's or Ringo's lovely lasses were into music and his son was, or is there some sort of cultural thing about playing the guitar and writing songs that is seen as a male domain? Of course there are female singer-songwroters, but you must admit it does seem a traditionally male thingy... I mean, I'm the only lass in my band, for one. ahdn_george_01 

Sorry, I've been thinking about this a good bit lately...

That only happens if they get into music. If they choose another career for themselves, like Stella or Mary McCartney have, I don't really see it as a problem. In fact, it even works to their advantage like Mary said that people are more trusting of her because of their surname..

Anyway, their career is their choice, and I don't think many of them would have the media attention they get for their album releases if it weren't for their dads.  Not saying that they aren't talented, but I can think of plenty of artists who are more talented than them and are nowhere near getting what they get.

Les Claypool and Sean Lennon Team Up for 'Monolith of Phobos' LP, Share "Mr. Wright"

Perhaps best known as the bassist and vocalist in Primus, Les Claypool recently announced a new project that finds him teaming up with Sean Lennon under the banner of the Claypool Lennon Delirium. The pair have now revealed plans for their debut full-length, which is titled Monolith of Phobos and will arrive on June 3 through ATO Records.

The pair met while on tour with their bands the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger and Primus, and Claypool was struck by Lennon's musical style.

"Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart," Claypool said in a press release. "He definitely reflects his genetics — not just the sensibilities of his dad [John Lennon ] but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother [Yoko Ono]. It makes for a glorious freak stew."

Of his new musical counterpart, Lennon said, "It's been an honour and a challenge playing with someone of Les' calibre, but luckily the Gods of Pinot Noir shone favorably down and granted us a bundle of devilish tunes about monkeys, outer space and sexual deviancy."

An example of that eccentric musical material has arrived with a new single called "Mr. Wright," and you can give it a listen below.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium will head out on the road this summer, joined by a live band that features the Beastie Boys ' Mark Ramos Nishita and the Fungi Band's Paul Baldi. There are currently no Canadian stops scheduled, but you can find the full list of upcoming shows across the United States here.

Freak stew. I may have to start using that phrase.

Here's a fun thing.

Amoeba*, for those of you who don't know, is a bloody massive independent music chain that has shops in L.A and San Francisco. Every now and again they post a 'What's in my Bag?' video where famous people (the majority are musicians) show what they bought in the store.

 

And Stella did one (see even Paul's kids don't get free Wings' records, it's a disgrace so it is).

Enjoy, Stella probably has the same taste in music as the majority of us here so it's cool to see.

 

*Paul also did a live impromptu gig there in 2007, he recorded it and it was released as the 'Amoeba's Secret' EP.

I like her description of 'God Only Knows' and the mention of her mother. "I'm going to cry now, but I'm not going to cry; that would be ridiculous."

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

I'll agree on that. Whilst James seems like a nice enough bloke, I don't think he's a great musician. I feel the same about Julian and Sean. It seems to me that out of all the Beatlesons, Zak is the most successful one. I mean; The Who is a pretty big deal, and so was Oasis. Dhani seems to be doing alright as well, though I think he's mostly known as the son of, as well. I think out of all the boys, Jason is the least famous one.

Family-connections speak in this world ^

James is a listenable-at-times singer but my God , he appears to be devoid of any personality whatsoever, every interview with him I always feel so sorry for the interviewer as he gives one-word answers and bland remarks- it's like pulling teeth trying to interview him.

I like Julian as a person, he seems like the soundest of them all (bar perhaps Dhani.....of course >.>), that you could walk up to him on the street and talk for half an hour about rubbish. However, I  amn't mad on his music- the majority of his stuff sound very dated, too 80s for my taste.

I like quite a bit of Sean solo's stuff but I don't like his GOASTT work, I think his voice doesn't match well with his girlfriend's and he tends to go out of tune when he has her singing louder than him. He has an alright personality but I wouldn't like to tick him off- I'd say he has a sharp tongue.

Dhani is great, he is ridiculously weird and ridiculously cool at the same time so it's a good match. I like his band's music, when he sings live though the vocals can get a bit dodgy. I think Dhani is one of the more successful ones (currently more than Paul's and John's sons anyways), in that he has got quite a few big soundtrack gigs for movies and television that have been very positively reviewed by critics and film/tv fans that are not newno2 follows, so there's that. He also doesn't rely on his dad's fame as heavily as James or Julian I think, in that whenever somebody brings up George he always manages to change the topic in like 5 seconds so good on him I guess. Although he'll never escape the 'Dhani Harrison, son of Beatle George, blah blah blah" get-up.

Zak is lucky in that the 'Starkey' name is nowhere near as famous as 'Starr', if he was Zak Starr (that's a silly name)- he probably would have suffered the same fate as the other children but he's managed to make his own name for himself so good on him!
