Rock and Roll Daddy
Being a dad and a rockstar can be tough, but probably no tougher than other jobs where the father has to travel.
There have been good and bad. Just like in life. Here are some:
Probably the best rock daddy out there. His kids went to public school when they weren’t traveling with his famous parents on tour. Above is a picture of his first-born Mary who was the star of the back cover of his first solo album “McCartney”.
Of course there is Ozzy. We’ve all seen his parenting on television. Apparently they are all “f*ing crazy”.
Keith Richards with his first round of kids. I’ve read his autobiography. It’s amazing they are alive…..
Robert Plant with daughter Carmen and holding his son Karac who tragically died as a child from a virus in 1977.
Zowie Bowie. That had to be weird. He goes by Duncan Jones now….
Eddie and Wolfgang Van Halen. The family that plays together…
Dave Grohl seems like a great dad. Interviews and documentaries all seem to make this point.
He wasn’t great the first time around with son Julian, but John Lennon learned from his mistakes and stayed home to raise his son Sean.
Frank Zappa with his daughter Moon Unit. Yep.
Keith Moon and his daughter Mandy. It had to be fun. Hell, but fun.
George Harrison with who would later become his “mini-me”, Dhani
Happy Father’s day to all the dads out there. It’s the greatest job in the world.
