Fathers and Mothers and Sons and Daughters

I was watching Live at Abbey Road last night on Sony, and was delighted to see Martha Wainwright and Teddy Thompson. Of course, Martha is the daughter of Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle (and brother of Rufus), and Teddy is the son of Richard and Linda Thompson. So, I thought I'd do a post on musical offspring, and wouldyoubelieveit, there am I loking at the Independent on Sunday this morning, and they've got a little piece on The 20 Best Rockstar Offspring.
The Independent left out poor old Teddy, in favour of people like Sting's son, Sean Lennon, and Lilly bloody Allen, which seems poor journalism to me if you think Keith Allen meets all the criteria of 'Rockstar'.
So, to make up for Teddy's ommission, and more, it's family friendly Sunday.
