Six Children of Music Legends Whose Own Music Doesn't Suck

You may have heard this week that Paul McCartney's son, James, wants to get together with the children of John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr and be a Beatles: Next Generation band. Truthfully, that might be one of the saddest and most desperate concepts for a musical project we've ever heard.

In the '60s, Frank Sinatra's daughter was a fucking badass. And she was beautiful. And she had great style.
