James McCartney Ponders "The New... Paul McCartney's son was recently asked about the possibility of teaming up with the other sons of to form a new version of the band. His response was actually positive. The Beatles
From the InterviewI don't think it's something that Zak wants to do. Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons and also drummer] 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.

He sounds like he's a chip off the old block...
"I then dreamt of being better than The Beatles. I'm not sure if I can do that. If anything, I would love to be equal to The Beatles - but even that's quite tough."
Love the Beatles, but cannot stand McCartney these days
I can see the sons teaming up to play at a TV Beatles tribute thing...

All that wander are not lost
Dhani Harrison is amazing, so I'll listen to anything he makes. Sean Lennon is alright and otherwise I haven't heard their kids' stuff

I saw Dhani play with Ben Harper a few years back -- spitting image of his father.

They'd be huge based on just who they are, not the music they make. It'd be interesting to see them release music under completely different names, and see if it would get the same response from people. That'd be really awesome.

Please, please don't do this.

I'd be interested to hear something. Not sure how confident I am in whatever would come out, though. I'm sure it'd be good, but people are probably going to expect too much.

It's a fun idea, but it's too messy.
If they ever do it, they should keep it a secret until they have solid, quality material to showcase.
edit: thought they were talking about making new music. As a tribute band, I don't see tremendous value in it.
