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).

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 even think the whole trying-to-look-like-john-thing could prevent him from ''making it''.

Really now, Sean's a full-grown man - I'm sure he dresses himself without Yoko's input! Long hair and grannies is a pretty timeless look, imo.

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.

Oh, I'm sure he dresses himself, I'm just saying that his mom might have some sort of input in the way he is, in general. I dunno. It is a timeless look, but he just looks like his imitating to me.

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

For me it would have to be Zak. Everyone else has the surname their parent made it by, and the connection can't be avoided. Zak Starkey though? Drummer for Oasis and The Who in his time. People needed telling who his father was, and he hasn't even really been following in his father's footsteps. It was Keith Moon who got him into, and taught him, drumming. Apt that he should end up sitting on Keith's stool, and become the best drummer The Who had after Moon. Kenny Jones was good but he couldn't roam the kit in the same way  Keith did, or in the same way Keith taught Zak to do.

Zak doesn't make a big thing of his success though. He doesn't do interviews proclaiming what an in-demand drummer he is or anything. He doesn't do "I'm the son of Ringo Starr!" interviews. He just takes the jobs that are offered him, and leaves any attention drawing to his role to his employers.

A nice, modest man who just happens to be one of the best, and most sought after, drummers in the world today.

And for those who say that the Lennon, McCartney and Harrison children had no choice about the surname, tell that to Mike McGear.

Isn't is common knowledge that Zak Starkey is Ringo's son? I knew that before I became a Beatles fan.

EDIT: Also, I don't think it would have been very easy for either of John's kids to escape the fact that their dad is John Lennon.

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?

We've kind of already talked about this in a favorite Beatle kid thread. No offense, but I really hate this topic because it just makes me feel bad for the ones that inevitably get dumped on, and they certainly couldn't choose the families they were born into.

I agree with Parlance. How could you say one is more talented than the rest anyways? They aren't all musicians, and then there are a coupe of them who keep out of the public eye. And none of them should just keep it to themselves that their dad's a Beatle. It really doesn't matter that much. Even if one of their kids was a serial killer, because kids can have the best childhood and still end up messed up.

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.

This is a strange question, but here goes...does anyone know where the Beatles' kids went to school? (I'm not asking for actual school names). We know where each member of the Royal Family went to school, but where did James & Mary McCartney or Zak Starkey Or Dhani go to school? Did they go to schools in their respective hometowns or were they home-schooled? Where did Sean go to school in NYC? I'd imagine Yoko probably hired a tutor. Just wondering.

Howard Soames' "Fab" (Paul bio) mentioned a detail or two about the schooling of Paul's children, if memory serves. I'm pretty sure that Paul made a point of sending his kids to a regular school, so they could be just regular students among many.

Speaking personally, I have no idea where any member of the royal family attended school - Liverpool Art College? West Beverly Hills High? Brooklyn P.S. No. 33? Maybe Hogwarts!

Didn't Sean go to some boarding school in Switserland?

As for the rest, no idea. Oh and I don't have a clue as to where the members of the Royal Family went to school. Don't care about it either.
