Update: So it turns out that The Stately Harold is a satire website. So, I goofed! This is absolutely not true.
For my original post, see below:
Sean Lennon, James McCartney, Dhani Harrison and Zak Starkey all have one thing in common – their fathers are the legendary musicians that comprised the Beatles. In a radio interview on June 3, 2015, James McCartney had this to say:
This is something that we’ve been talking about ever since we we’re little boys getting together at Christmas and suchlike. Our whole lives we’ve tried to distance ourselves from our fathers somewhat, but there’s no escaping that we’re all passionate about making and performing music. We’re starting a band both as an homage to our fathers and because it seems like the only logical thing to do in an illogical world. The boys and I are looking forward to a Tour in 2016 where we showcase our news music. I will admit that we are terribly nervous, especially Dhani, I mean, we can never live up to what our fathers created, but we will do our best.
They’re calling themselves The Shoots, and plan to start touring in 2016. Here’s a video released by The Stately Harold:
