    Default The first father & son team in a rock band?

    Help me out here. Now that Ed and Wolfie are playing together in this band, is this the first father and son team in a rock band? I can not think of one other instance of this. Aside from the usual VH dramas over the years, do you think this father/son combo makes any difference to the general public (non VH fanatics), or does it just come down to the end product?

    I think it's about quality of end product. I doubt anyone will be interested in the music STRICTLY for the fact that Ed and his kid are in the same band. That being said, Ed could still make history being the first one to have a father/son (and brother) in a band. Leave it to Ed to be the first at this, too...

    The only thing I can think of remotely close is McKenzie Phillips playing with her Dad in a later incarnation of the Mammas and the Pappas.

    Al Jardeen (formerly of the Beach Boys) has a son that plays in his touring band.

    No. The Sir Douglas Quintet had some hits in the 60's ("She's About A Mover"). The band's leader was Doug Sahm, who later had his son in the band on lead guitar.

    Billy Joe Shaver (country) hooked up with his son's metal band in the late eighties, for a wierd "hybrid" release.

    In the blues genre there's James "Pops" Peterson and his son Lucky.

    Wyman's son (from a previous marriage) was dating the mother of Wyman's wife. So technically, Bill Wyman would be the father in law to his own mother in law.

    No. Dickie Betts and his son Duane Betts have played on and off in Dickie's band "Great Southern" for sometime now. Duane (named after Duane Allman), like his old man, is a pretty fine guitar player.
