[BEATLE BARELY] James McCartney is such an innocuous name for pop music royalty, isn’t it? As the son of Paul and Linda McCartney, he is basically the Woodstock generation’s Blue Ivy Carter. OK, maybe not. But the guy does have the Cute One’s iconic mug, and a bit of his dad’s voice, too. Anonymity is sort of his thing, though. He didn’t even bother giving the family business a try until his early 30s, and when he did, his music—breathy singer-songwriter stuff with fluttery electronics vaguely influenced by The Bends-era Radiohead—turned out to sound like, well, what you might expect from a dude with a name as generic as James McCartney. Still, unless Sir Paul shows up at Laurelthirst one night, this is the closest most of us will get to breathing the same air as the vile human being who wrote “Wonderful Christmastime,” so consider this an opportunity to let his son know how his father ruined the holidays forever.
