Sibset of the Week: The James’

Alex James, from

I’ll admit it, I’m a draft hoarder with currently 145 of ’em patiently waiting to be finished, and this one in particular has had a long road to being published, since I actually first drafted this post on the same day the first Sibset of the Week was posted, and it slipped into my drafts graveyard to be forgotten for many, many weeks. It resurfaced on my radar whilst I was searching through my draft backlog last weekend, trying to once again reduce the number of never-finished-posts. This post was almost put on the bak-burner again on Friday, when I let slip the name of his youngest child; so I spent most of the weekend hoping none of you would spoil my fun by commenting on Friday’s post with the names of her siblings.

But, onto the post. When I was at school, if you didn’t know who Busted or Blur were, you were nothing short of a fool (try not to be shocked then that I did know of them). Today’s famous Daddy was the bass player for Blur, and named his kiddies as if the naming community was looking over his shoulder. Alex James, we salute you.

My intial thought when I see Geronimo is Wallace of Wallace and Gromit. Wensleydale and Geronimo would make a killer pair for any major fan of the W&G dynamic duo. Indeed, James now lives on an organic cheese farm and has produced his own range of cheeses. This is Rock ‘n’ roll.

On the subject of Blur, it’s fair to mention lead singer Damon’s daughter is named Missy and guitarist Graham’s daughter bears the name Pepper.
