pop singers with famous fathers

Post by Grandad » Mon Aug 08, 2011 11:35 am

Hi all, I'm working on a quiz for a social club I'm a member of and having a bit of trouble on one round. I'm trying to get a list of people who have had a UK hit or two but also have a famous father (not necessarily a singer). I'm getting a bit stuck so if anybody knows some others I'd be grateful if you list them. So far I've got:

Lily Allen - Keith Allen (actor)
Miley Cyrus - Billy Ray Cyrus (country singer)
Norah Jones - Ravi Shankar (musician)
Sam Brown - Joe Brown (singer/guitarist)
Kim Wilde - Marty Wilde (singer)
Chesney Hawkes - Len (chip) Hawkes (bassist with Tremeloes)
Shelly & Karen Poole (Alisha's Attic) - Brian Poole (leader of the Tremeloes)
Matthew Bellamy (Muse) - George Bellamy (rhythm guitarist of the Tornados)
Julian Lennon - John Lennon (god!!!)

Thanks in advance.

Kelly Osbourne - Ozzy Osbourne (rock singer)

Although I don't really think Kelly was ever a big hit over here, but I do know she had like a short lived music career.
