**** Well this evening I went to the in store performance of Sean's band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger who have a new album out called Midnight Sun. For those who heard the first album, it was mostly mellow acoustic songs. For this album Sean took the psychedelic/borderline hard rock route on most of the songs. In addition to Sean and his girlfriend Charlotte, the band had about four other members. In my opinion Sean has a decent but not great singing voice and it sounded like they added some echo to make him sound better. In my opinion Charlotte's actually a better singer. She had the lead on one song and I really dug her singing. But the thing that kept going through my head during the performance was "One of John Lennon's sons is right in front of me." There is something surreal about even seeing the son of a Beatle. I had a similar feeling when I saw Dhani Harrison at the same place a few years back.
**** After the performance was over everyone got on line and waited for the equipment to be put away and for the autograph table to be set up. I would say there was roughly 150-200 people there so of course I knew the time speaking to Sean and Charlotte would be brief. But my impression of them was that they are quite eccentric but still seem nice. And I will say that Charlotte is probably one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life. Sean's doing pretty good there.:)
**** I gave the album a listen when I got home. Some songs are really good and some need to grow on me.
***Cool review! I gotta get that album a.s.a.p.
** I'd definitely recommend the album. It's quite good. The interesting thing about Sean is on some songs he sounds nothing like John and then on others you can hear some of John in his voice. Julian on the other hand sometimes sounds eerily close to John when he sings. Who knows if it'll ever happen but I think it would be cool if Sean and Julian did at least one collaboration.
*I seem to remember some talk about the Beatle boys forming a band, a few years ago. Guess it never happened but I wish it would!
*Julian, Sean, Dhani, James and Zak. Now that would rock!
I think James McCartney made a comment that was sort of taken out of context. He said he'd be open to working with the other Beatle children and then all of a sudden the media made it like a Beatle offspring band was definitely happening. If it ever happened it would be pretty cool but they'd have a lot of pressure put on them.
