The Beatles: James McCartney 'Happy' To Form A Band With Sons Of Other Three Beatles

Sir Paul McCartney's musician son said he would be "happy" to form a new band with the sons of the other three Beatles.

James McCartney said the idea had been discussed with Sean Lennon, Dhani Harrison and Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey, but it was more likely another of Starr's sons, Jason, would be involved.

He told the BBC: "I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do. Maybe Jason would want to do it. I'd be up for it. Sean seemed to be into it, Dhani seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it."

Asked if he thought it would ever happen, he said: "Yeah, hopefully, naturally. I don't know, you'd have to wait and see. The will of God, nature's support, I guess. So yeah, maybe."

James has released two digital-only EPs and a two-disc set produced by his famous father and is currently on a small tour of the UK and Ireland.
