People have lusted after popstars ever since Elvis. In our parents’ day people threw their panties on stage when Robert Plant performed. Even today neither Maroon 5 nor Ke$ha will let us forget about Mick Jagger! (Moves Like Jagger & TiK Tok) Alas, slowly but surely these pop heart-throbs fizzled out of the limelight and into family life, making room for a new wave of music celebrities. Our question is: what happened to the sons of this elder generation of pop icons? And how many of them followed their fathers’ footsteps into the family business of music-making?
Welcome to our “Pop Princes” series. Starting tomorrow, we will be blogging about the men who were lucky enough to be born as instant pop royalty - and where they are today.
