Sir Paul McCartney is hoping to launch his son James' music career - by helping him record a debut album. The 30-year-old drummer and guitarist - who is the former Beatles star's son with first wife Linda - has already appeared on two of his MCCartney's solo albums, but is keen to launch his own LP. MCCartney, 65, says, "I'm actually doing some recording with my son. We're just looking at the idea of him making an album. He's doing it all. He's writing it all, laying it all. It's sensational. But there's nothing set yet. We don't know if it'll work. "The plan is for me to just do some recording with him, and it's really exciting. I'm really loving it." Their studio efforts are expected to be released next year (08). MCCartney is the last Beatle to have a child with their own music career. Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey, 42, is the drummer for Oasis and The Who, John Lennon's sons Sean, 32, and Julian, 44, are both solo artists and George Harrison's son Dhani, 29, plays with his own band, thenewno2.
