Washington, Mar 16 (ANI): George Harrison’’s son Dhani has said that he feared being under his famous fathers shadow, and was thus determined to forge a career on his own.

The 30-year-old musician never wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps, and become a musician, because he didnt want to be compared to the late rocker.

Thus, he went to U.S. and studied design at Ivy League university Brown.

However, he returned to his musical roots later, and now performs in band Thenewno2.

He is happy that he took the time to master another trade.

“I watched what happened to a lot of the other kids, Contactmusic quoted him as telling Blender magazine.

Zak (Starkey, Ringo Starr’’s son), Sean (Lennon), Stella (MCCartney) have succeeded, but it’’s Stella who’’s the one who’’s not being compared to her father, because her father’’s not a fashion designer.

Whereas Zak will always be compared to Ringo because he’’s a drummer. And Sean will be compared to John because he’’s a singer/songwriter. But my dad was never a designer,” he added. (ANI)
