The sons of The Beatles are set to form a band together, according to reports.

In an interview with the BBC, Paul McCartney's son James said he and the rest of the Fab Four's offspring could pay tribute to their dads by creating a second-generation incarnation of the group.

James, who has released two EPs titled 'Available Light' and 'Close At Hand', admitted that he had discussed working with Sean Lennon and Dhani Harrison, although it seems as if Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey, isn't keen on the idea.

When asked if he had ever thought about forming a band with the rest of the Beatles' children, he replied:

I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do. Maybe Jason [drummer and one of Starr's other sons] 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 went on to say that the idea had been mooted "a little bit" and, when pushed on if it could become a reality, answered: "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."

Last month, Beatles legend Paul McCartney revealed that he and his former bandmates had often discussed reforming the band, but had ultimately decided against it in case they tarnished their legacy. He released his latest solo album, 'Kisses On The Bottom', earlier this year.
