A false story circulating this week claims that four sons of members of The Beatles have joined to form a band called “The Shoots.”
The false story claims that four sons of former members of The Beatles – James McCartney, Sean Lennon, Dhani Harrison, and Zak Starkey – have joined forces to form a band called The Shoots. The story, however, was published by the self-proclaimed satire website The Stately Harold.
A disclaimer on that website’s “About” page clearly states its attempt at publishing satire.
The Stately Harold is a satirical website. None of the stories have a grain of truth to them and the opinions do not belong to real people.
Besides the satirical nature of the article’s source, there have also been no such announcements by the sons of the former Beatles, two of whom are currently on tour. Zak Starkey is currently on tour with The Who, while Sean Lennon is also touring with The Goastt (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger).
The sons of former Beatles members have not formed a band called The Shoots. The false report comes from a self-proclaimed satire website.
