McCartney, Lennon and Harrison may be getting back together again, according to Sir Paul McCartney's son. James McCartney, son of the Beatles bass-playing leader, recently told the BCC that he has spoken with John Lennon's son, Sean, and George Harrison's son, Dhani, and the three of them were "up for it."
"Sean seemed to be into it," James added. "Dhani seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it."
The only hold out appears to be Ringo Starr's son, Zak Starkey.
"I don't think it's something that Zak wants to do," said James McCartney. "Maybe Jason [another of Starr's sons and also a drummer] would want to do it."
Asked if "The Beatles 2" was really a possibility, James McCartney responded with vague optimism.
"Yeah, hopefully, naturally," he said. "I don't know, you'd have to wait and see. The will of God, nature's support, I guess. So yeah, maybe."
James McCartney is an accomplished singer-songwriter. in his own right and has played guitar on two of his father's albums (Flaming Pie and Driving Rain). He is planning to follow in the Beatles footsteps by playing a show at the famous Liverpool venue, The Cavern Club, where the Beatles performed before getting famous.
He told BBC that as a schoolboy his dream was to be even "better than The Beatles," adding, "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."
Actually, all I'm gonna say is -- if this happens, Julian's gonna be REALLY pissed.
