Today in Terrible Ideas: The Beatles' offspring just might form a sort of "Beatles 2" band—at least to hear one of Paul McCartney's kids tell it. "I'd be up for it," James McCartney tells the BBC. "Sean [Lennon] seemed to be into it, Dhani [Harrison] seemed to be into it. I'd be happy to do it." Ringo Starr's son Zak, however, was apparently not so keen on the idea, although the younger McCartney noted that Zak's brother Jason might want to join instead.

How likely is the idea? McCartney would only say that it could happen "hopefully," and added, "I don't know, you'd have to wait and see. The will of God, nature's support, I guess." (More Beatles stories.)
