    The son of legendary Beatle Paul McCartney, James McCartney, is looking to set up a band that would unite him and two other Beatles' sons, Sean Lennon and Dhani Harrison, BBC reported on Tuesday.

    In an interview with BBC, McCartney Jr. said that he would be “up for it.”

    “Sean [Lennon] and Dhani [Harrison] seemed to be into it too,” James said.

    The 34-year-old son of Paul McCartney will play a show in Liverpool and then a gig in Dublin on Wednesday, he will then embark on a tour in the United States.

    “I dreamt of being better than The Beatles. 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,” James told the BBC.

    The famous musician's son has already taken part in several recordings on some of Paul McCartney’s albums. He also co-authored the songs Spinning On An Axis and Back In The Sunshine Again. In 2005, McCartney Jr. accompanied his father during his North American tour.

    James released a four-track album, Available Light, in 2010, in 2011 he released another album called Close At Hand. He is not the only Beatles offspring to have followed in his father's footsteps, 36-year-old Sean Lennon has been involved in recordings with his mother, Yoko Ono, since childhood. Sean started his own musical career in 2001.

    33-year old Dhani Harrison gained popularity in the music world in 2002, when he completed his father’s posthumous album, Brainwashed. Dhani started two bands, thenewno2 and Fistful of Mercy.
