I don't think it's easy to be a celebrity and a father and still be a "normal" dad to your children. The two who I think exemplify good fathers the best are Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.

Thanks, Maita, for the interesting background and photos on these celebrity rocker dads.

Bret Michaels seems like a decent sort, as does Bono. My personal favorite who would come to my mind were I asked to name a good father who is also a famous rock star would be Jon Bon Jovi, heads over any others. Apparently Bruce Springteen has a good record as a dad too. \

Good hub, Maita. So many famous celebrities are clearly lacking in the family loyalty department. When someone can deal with all those pressures and still be a decent upstanding family man, one has to salute him. Those who can't - well they may get my pity, but not as much as their families get it. We all know who they are - and they don't have to be famous for rock music to qualify!!

I always enjoy your celebrity hubs, Maita. John Lennon was father to two famous sons--Julian and Shawn. Julian was a singer that I always thought sounded so much like John, it was almost eerie sometimes.

Great post, Maita. Rated up and "awesome."

One often wonders what it must be like to have a famous dad. I mean, besides all the pressure of people expecting you to "live up to" the name and the stature of the former. The extra money you'd likely wind up with would sure be nice though. :)
