I heard an interview with Stella Parton earlier this morning in which she claimed to have released 33 albums. For the life of me I could not recall hearing a single song by her but am much more familiar with the music of big sister Dolly. It must be difficult for an artist to break away from the bonds of a more successful family member without being accused of cashing in.
John Lennon started a whole family business himself with father, both wives and sons releasing records. Does anyone listen to Jakob Dylan or Adam Cohen anymore? The Wainwrights and Waterston/Carthy clan seem to be surviving and thriving. Matt Bellamy has become a bigger act than father George.
Poor Chris Jagger will always be seen as a shadow of brother Mick. Check out his music here (rather good) for yourself: www.chrisjaggeronline.com/
Have I missed any? A Gallagher sister perhaps? Bjork’s brother?
