Any examples of the good ones?

I noticed that Bono's son's band released an album that went straight to the number one slot (ooh missus etc), and it got me thinking.

We're far enough away from Britpop now that there is likely sprogs of 90s indie bands picking up guitars and donning their mum's and dad's Kangol bucket hats. Are we in for Britpop 2, The New Batch? I think Liam Gallagher has about 37 kids, so presumably he could spawn about 12 bands, or one Polyphonic Spree.

For the record, I am vehemently against Britpop 2.

As for good ones, first one that came to my mind was Jeff Buckley. Please share your own. Maybe the Wallflowers changed your life, or you think Julian and/or Sean Lennon seem like a great bunch of lads.

The Wallflowers were absolutely massive in the States for a year or two in the 90s. I've never heard a note of their music, though, so can't confirm whether good or bad - one of those numerous American bands that have close to zero impact here.

Someone posted a link to the band Lennon Gallagher was in the other week and that was surprisingly not shit

Sean Lennon's first album was pretty decent

Alvin Stardust's son very successfully made some amazing D&B in the mid 90's as Adam F and scored four top 40 tracks.

I saw that article about Bono's lad and his mates, all in their leather jackets, not looking at the camera in an old garage somewhere. And Bono's lad was saying they had paid their dues, just like a regular band, theyd played loads of small gigs in like terrible pubs, and just worked their way up the rock n roll ladder, authentically, like any other band might have done. So fair play to the lad.

I saw Paul Simons son play a tiny pub in Birmingham.
Also Paul McCartneys son James played a different small pub in Birmingham.
I'm sure that most people who attend these gigs are only really going so that they can be in the same room as someone who shares DNA with someone much more famous.

The Like are pretty good. Pete Thomas' daughter plays drums and Mitchell Froom's daughter is the bassist.

Always loved Alisha's Attic as well.

Oh yeah. I'd respect Stella McCartney as a fashion designer, as much as that's actually possible, if she dropped the McCartney bit and tried something without megastar daddy's name recognition.

Is Ziggy Marley any good?

Sometimes it's actually very amusing how short a distance the apple falls from the tree, Kasper Schmeichel being my current favourite.

Kasper Schmeichel and Frank Lampard are the second comings of their dads. Unlike poor old Jordi Cruyff.

Inara George, daughter of Little Feat's Lowell George and a member of The Bird and The Bee. Very good they are too.

I saw the Bad Shepherd's live and they were supported by Ades daughter (I can't remember which one.  The folk singer one). She made a comment between songs about needing some money to record a new album.  Someone in the audience shouted "can't you ask Mummy and Daddy?". To her credit she shrugged it off.

I forgot about Baxter.  I've enjoyed his albums but haven't listened in awhile.

Suggs from Madness daughters made a bid for pop stardom to the point that they were given a slot on the 2nd stage at one of the Madstock gigs.  They weren't great but thankfully gave up on the idea

On a similar note, the sisters who fronted Voice of the Beehive's old man was in the Four Preps, who also featured Glen Larson in the line-up, prior to him inventing Knight Rider and numerous other TV shows.

RE Madness. Not a popstar but saxophonist, El Thommo's son Daley. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree - in full effect. Just as nutty as his old man.

Are there many other cases like with the Staple Singers, where parent(s) and child(ren) become pop stars in the same act? I imagine it happens quite a bit with folk and country acts, but any more that had mainstream success? Frank and Nancy Sinatra, I suppose, to an extent...

Lots of indie types seem to really like The Goon Sax despite the guy from out of the Goon Sax being nowhere near as good as his dad Robert Forster from out of the Go-Betweens.

I half watched one of those 5 minute entertainment news shows the other day with a bit about some new singer talking about her latest single, and her surname was Lennox and the voiceover said something about her mum so I'm presuming it was Annie Lennox's daughter. No idea if it was any good though, didn't look like my kind of thing.

Do Spirit count? Lead guitarist Randy California's stepdad, Ed Cassidy, played drums in the band. Cassidy was 44 (and bald) when the otherwise youthful and hirsute Spirit formed in 1967, which is quite unusual.
