Like most professions, a career in music can also run in the family. However, being the child of a music icon must be challenging. The world watches every step of famous musicians and their kids. Everyone waits for the children to follow in their parents' already giant footsteps.
While the comparison is often inevitable, most of the kids pull through and become stars in their own right. Here are some famous musicians and their kids:
Bob Dylan and son Jakob
The first in our list of famous musicians and their kids would be Bob Dylan. He has become a household name in modern music history. He is regarded as "The Voice of a Generation." Aside from his music career, he is also a writer and a visual artist. Bob published eight books on illustrations and paintings.
His son, Jakob Dylan, is the frontman for the rock band The Wallflowers. The folk and American artist already has two Grammys under his name. This younger Dylan wrote hit songs such as "6th Avenue Heartache" and "One Headlight."
Ravi Shankar and Norah Jones
Perhaps the two things closely associated with Ravi Shankar are the sitar and Indian music. The Bengali Indian musician has spread traditional Indian music to the rest of the world with his mastery of the sitar. Among Ravi's most iconic collaborations were with The Beatles, especially George Harrison.
His relationship with American concert producer Sue Jones would bring another legend to the world, singer-songwriter Norah Jones. Starting as a lounge singer, Norah was skyrocketed into fame with his Billboard chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning debut album "Come Away With Me."
Bob Marley and sons Ziggy and Damian
The Jamaican musician Robert "Bob" Nesta Marley transcended to become the global icon for reggae, as well as Jamaican culture and identity. His spirituality and wisdom are evident in his songs, such as his version of "Don't Worry, Be Happy" and "Is This Love."
