Stars With Rock Star Dads
As this list of Stars With Rock Star Dads demonstrates, some of the most famous names in music, television and movies today have parents who are bona fide rock legends. In some cases, you may already know the story, or recognize the last name, but we bet there’s at least a couple of these family connections you weren’t aware of. For example …
Minka Kelly’s Dad Played Guitar in Aerosmith
The lovely ‘Friday Night Lights,’ ‘Parenthood’ and ‘Charlie’s Angels’ television star is the daughter of former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay, who appears on the group’s underrated 1982 ‘Rock in a Hard Place‘ album. You can see them at the top of this page.

As you can see from this photo, the former Genesis drummer, frontman and solo star is quite proud of his daughter Lily, who has appeared in films like ‘Mirror, Mirror’ and ‘Abduction’ and will soon have a major role in the ‘Mortal Instruments’ film series.
Bijou Phillips’ Papa Was the Leader of the Mamas and Papas
Born in 1980, the younger Philips has appeared in movies such as ‘Black and White’ and the rock music-centered ‘Almost Famous.’ Which makes some kind of cosmic sense considering her father was the driving force behind songs like ‘California Dreamin.’

Every good parent wants their children to succeed beyond what they themselves have accomplished in life. But, boy, does Jakob Dylan — leader of the Wallflowers and son of Bob Dylan, perhaps the most important songwriter in rock history — have a long road to travel to make that happen.
Liv Tyler Has Not One, but Two Legendary Rock Star Dads
It’s a pretty well-known fact that ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Armegeddon’ star Liv Tyler is the daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. But for the first eight years of her life, she was told that her adoptive father — another rock legend, Todd Rundgren — was also her biological dad. After learning the truth, the younger Tyler changed her last name but kept Rundgren as her middle name.
