Scientists suggest that talent and success may be inherited, just like our appearance. And we wonder whether this means that the children of rock stars are meant to become famous musicians or do they just have more of a chance to bring their talents to life.
We at Bright Side decided to find out what the kids of iconic musicians, whose hits will forever stay in the history of music, look like and what they do. Some of them followed in their parents’ footsteps and others chose a completely different path.
Jade Jagger — the daughter of Mick Jagger from The Rolling Stones
Lola Lennox — the daughter of Annie Lennox
The daughter of this singer, who was included on the list of the 100 greatest artists of all time, also chose a musical career. Unlike her mother, who performed rock and synth-pop, Lola prefers jazz and blues. Last year, she recorded the soundtrack for the Serengeti documentary released by The Discovery Channel.
Sophie Simmons — the daughter of Gene Simmons from Kiss
At the age of 11, Sophie took part in the reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels. When she was 20, she auditioned to take part in The X Factor TV show, when she was 22, she decided to become a model, and when she was 23 — a singer. Now, Sophie is 27 years old, and she has taken part in photoshoots for glossy magazines, released several music singles, and launched a plus-size clothing line. Simmons promotes ideas of body positivity and beauty that doesn’t depend on the size of the clothes.
Anaïs Gallagher — the daughter of Noel Gallagher from Oasis
Anaïs took part in her first fashion photoshoot when she was only 12 years old, and she was instantly called “the next Kate Moss.” She’s 20 years old now, and she is studying photography at the Camberwell College of Arts in London and works as a model. She’s taken part in Dolce & Gabbana fashion shows and in Reebok advertising campaigns.
Zak Starkey — the son of Ringo Starr from The Beatles
The son of The Beatles’ drummer also became a drummer and has managed to work with many musical groups. For some time, Zak even played in the legendary British rock bands The Who and Oasis.
Pirate Davis — the son of Jonathan Davis from Korn
The son of Korn’s permanent vocalist recently turned 15, and he is still in school. Many people say that Pirate is becoming more and more like his father, and he also often appears at Korn concerts.
Paul Inder — the son of Lemmy Kilmister from Motörhead
The son of the founder of the legendary hard-rock music band Motörhead, turned out to be a well-rounded person. Paul Inder is an engineer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He’s been creating soundtracks for movies for a while and has recorded several independent music compositions.
Calico Cooper — the daughter of Alice Cooper
The oldest daughter of the king of shock rock had already begun touring with her father at the age of 18, and she performed on stage as part of Alice Cooper’s world tour, Brutal Planet. Now, Calico is 39 years old, and she takes part in films, participates in television shows, and from time to time, appears in the music videos of her famous dad.
Aimee Osbourne — the daughter of Ozzy Osbourne
Few people know about Aimee because she refused to participate in the family reality show, although all the other Osborne children starred in it. In 2010, she created the music project called ARO and releases new music tracks from time to time. Aimee’s works are completely different from the music her famous father performs — she prefers electronic music.
Do you think that success can be inherited or does it mostly depend on the person themselves?
