The sons of The Beatles are considering forming a band.James McCartney - son of Sir Paul, the legendary group's bassist - has discussed playing with the offspring of drummer Ringo Starr, singer and guitarist John Lennon and guitarist George Harrison in a band.When asked if they had considered such a move, James said: ''Yeah, a little bit.''He added: ''I'd be up for it. Sean [Lennon] seemed to be into it, Dhani [Harrison] seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it.''When it came to Ringo's eldest son, Zak Starkey - who has drummed for Oasis and The Who - James wasn't sure, but suggested his brother, Jason, who is also a drummer, could step in.

Paul's son wants to form band with children of John, George and Ringo

Paul McCartney's son James has told the BBC  ( that he is interested in teaming up with the sons of his father's former bandmates to form The Beatles: The Next Generation. "I don't think it's something that Zak [Starkey] wants to do," says McCartney. "Maybe Jason [Starkey] would want to do it. I'd be up for it. Sean [Lennon] seemed to be into it, Dhani [Harrison] seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it."

McCartney, 34, is furthering his solo career by performing soon at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, the old stomping grounds of his father's band. The rocker says he chose to play there because he wants to "just to embrace the Beatles legacy rather than running away from it."

McCartney has collaborated with his father in the past. Paul served as producer on his son's two EPs, and the younger McCartney played guitar on the elder's albums Flaming Pie and Driving Rain.
