There was a Rolling Stone interview a long time ago with Chris
Franz(?) and Tina Weymouth, and they asked if their kid is musically
inclined.  They said he is learning drums, but has no interest in
bass, because, as he put it, "Bass is for girls".  I think I remember
a similar comment from Kim Gordon's kid, but I may be hallucinating
that one.
