Following Their Footsteps.. Sort Of
It’s not easy having rockstar parents even more so if you’re following their creative path. Take Jason Bonham for example. He’s a darn good drummer but if your dad is Bonzo, chances are, people are going to compare you every single chance they get.
Some kids prefer a simple, quiet life away from the limelight but others, of course, pursue their passion. From musicians to Hollywood A-listers – we’re listing down these rockers whose offsprings also managed to make names for themselves.
10. John Lennon – Sean Lennon
Sean Lennon looks a lot like his father – so much so that it’ll give you goosebumps.

And he did follow on his parents’ footsteps by venturing into the music industry.
9. George Harrison – Dhani Harrison
He is the spitting image of the Quiet Beatle and he also happens to be multi-talented in the music department. He’s a composer, songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist at that. Plus, he has also collaborated and performed with other legends like his father’s close friend Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam, Prince, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.
