I think I read something a few years ago about the children of various NWA members forming a new rap collective together.

EDIT: It was this: https://www.vice.com/en/article/68ape3/the-sons-of-dr-dre-and-eazy-e-are-going-on-tour-as-nwa

Don't think it got very far, as all the articles about them are at least five years old.

Is she the one who was reportedly mortified about her dad making an album with Shaggy? What a joyless nerk. I still maintain if I woke up one morning and read a text from my sister saying "Dad's only gone and made an album with Shaggy" I would not stop laughing for three days at least.

'EAR MI NOW, GERALD!

Ha, exactly. It'd be brilliant

And yes, that's probably her. She doesn't seem to have much of a sense of humour. Tantric baby, you see

Jason Bonham is a drummer like his dad was and deputized for him when Zeppelin played that big reunion gig at the 02 years ago. Daughter Zoe has also done some singer/songwriter stuff.

Country music icon Hank Williams' son is also a country musician called Hank Williams II, and his son is a metal-infused 'outlaw country' musician (that I'm a big fan of) called Hank Williams III.

Hank Williams' progeny seem to be very musical, apparently III's half-sister is singer-songwriter Holly Williams and his uncle is singer-songwriter Jett Williams. And weirdly, Jett Williams and Hank Williams II have never even spoken to each other.

Billy Ray Cyrus - Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus' sister Noah Cyrus has also now started dipping her toes into singing, she's got a gorgeous voice like Miley too.

You heard the Miley Cyrus cover of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica? If you'd have told me ten years ago that this song would exist and that I would love it, I would've been mortified.

Until she lost her voice, at least.

Hank Williams Jr. his actual name is Randall Hank Williams, but he obviously wanted people to know who's son he has in no uncertain terms. His son is actually named Shelton Hank Willams, but obviously felt the same way as his father regarding the family legacy. It's even odder when 'Hank' was only his father's stage name too (there are quite a few country singers of that era who used it as a stage name), as his real christian name was Hiram.

They are only half-siblings - Jett was the result of an affair Williams had with a fan shortly before his death. She went through a long court battle against the Williams family (and Jr. in particular, as she wanted her half of her father's estate) to be recognised as his daughter, so it's not surprising they are not on good terms.

Eddie Van Halen's son Wolfgang toured on bass with the band for years (after the original bassist left) starting in his late teens (and looking hilariously nerdy/ordinary on stage with them IMO). He just released his debut solo album Mammoth

Hank Williams' jizz must have been so musical, each sperm had its own banjo. You could probably put a stethoscope against his ballsack and hear the next country and western hit.

The Islamic judgment is as maybe, but what was his real name?

Barely-relevant but I saw some other less-relevant posts itt too -

Did you know that Nick Reynolds, the harmonica player from Alabama 3 - most famous for the Sopranos theme tune - is the son of Bruce Reynolds, the mastermind of the Great Train Robbery in 1963?

Why is it that when someone follows their parent into the acting world (countless examples), it's treated as less of a joke? But when the child of a pop/rock/rap star does it, that's usually met with an air of cynicism, and cries of how they didn't deserve all those doors to be automatically open, when more deserving mortals don't get a look in.
I guess musicians have more of an expectation to be relatable, so if you remove the familiar rags-to-riches narrative, it kind of wrecks it.

Folk-rock artist, Elvis Perkins, the son of actor, Anthony Perkins. And yes, this counts because the Psycho (1960) star released three albums and had a minor hit single in the U.S. during the late-1950s.

His son must've had a lot of emotion, agony and soul-searching inspiration for his country ballads considering his father's troubled life and early death. If that wasn't enough to deal with, he lost his mum, Berry Berenson in the 911 attack. She was a passenger on Flight 11. Some people really do get dealt a rough hand.

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.

I give it a try and was pretty much bored of it by the 90 second mark - I can sometimes dig that kind of mid 90s US  mainstream "alt" rock (ie Counting Crows, Toad the Wet Sprocket) but that washed right over me.

He's a better singer than his old man, I'll give him that.

But have you seen Bruce Richard Reynolds? He's a man I'd like to find.

That is very weird. But I now have a mashup of Bulletproof and the theme from The Bill running through my head. It’s quite good.

There was a "Frank Sinatra Jr" who enjoyed a relatively modest, but still successful, career. Not the guy who thought he was Woody Allen's son for much of his life.

Wiki:

Kidnapping

Sinatra was kidnapped at the age of 19 on December 8, 1963, at Harrah's Lake Tahoe (Room 417).[5] He was released two days later after his father paid the $240,000 ransom demanded by the kidnappers (equivalent to $2,030,000 in 2020). Barry Keenan, Johnny Irwin, and Joe Amsler were soon captured, prosecuted for kidnapping, convicted, and sentenced to long prison terms, of which they served only small portions. Mastermind Keenan was later adjudged to have been legally insane at the time of the crime and hence not legally responsible for his actions.[5] Famed attorney Gladys Root represented Irwin.

The kidnappers demanded that all communication be conducted by payphone. During these conversations, Frank Sr. became concerned that he would not have enough coins, which prompted him to carry 10 dimes with him at all times for the rest of his life; he was even buried with 10 dimes in his pocket.[6]

At the time of the kidnapping, Frank Sr. and the Rat Pack were filming Robin and the 7 Hoods. The stress of the kidnapping, in addition to the assassination of Sinatra's close friend John F. Kennedy just a few weeks prior to the kidnapping, caused Sinatra to seriously consider shutting down production completely, although the film was ultimately completed.[7]

Kelly Osbourne is the child of a rock star who had a few medium hits. Although it's really off the back of that massive reality show the whole family did, so I'd say she was famous in her own right before the music, not "just" Ozzy Osbourne's daughter.
