In light of the news that Kings of Leon guitarist Matthew Followill is a new father, music news site Gigwise took a look at other rockers that share in the gift of fatherhood. They did this a couple of days ago, but we know you like news to sit around for a couple of days before reading. It lets the flavors marinate before you enjoy it.
Gigwise did give the rap world a little love by including Snoop Dogg and Eminem on their list, but in that case, there’s probably a couple dozen other rappers that could be added to the list, including Dr. Dre, most of the Wu Tang Clan, and the recently deceased Nate Dogg.
Here’s a couple of other rock star dads Gigwise snubbed:
James Hetfield (Metallica)
Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age)
Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam)
Chris Cornell (Soundgarden)
Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode)
