Hey, isn't your dad ...?

I got into a discussion with my wife about famous musicians whose fathers (or mothers) were famous musicians in their own right. We came up with:

Jakob Dylan
The members of Wilson-Phillips
Jason Bonham
Nelson (Matthew and Gunnar Nelson)
Hank Williams, Jr.
Julian and Sean Lennon
Zak Starkey
The Zappas (Dweezil, Moon Unit, and Ahmet)
Wynonna Judd

Note that I included Zak Starkey, so I've got a relatively loose definition of "famous." I know we must be missing a bunch. Who else is out there?

Yeah, there are a bunch of them.

Natalie Cole (Nat King Cole's daughter)
Norah Jones (Ravi Shankar's daughter)
Ziggy Marley (Bob Marley's son)
Wolfgang Van Halen (maybe not famous but he will be touring with the band)

Less famous, but there's also Loudon Wainwright and his son Rufus and daughter Martha Wainwright.

OP mentioned that already.

Frank Sinatra, Jr.

Also I remember hearing about a band a few years ago that was basically the kids of a lot of famous musicians, but they were all like 9 or 10. It may have included the son or daughter of Thurston Moore, if such a thing exists.

Coco Gordon Moore is part of a band called Lighbulb. I don't recognize the names of any of the other kids, but then again, Coco's not using her real name.
