Rock Star Dads
Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis, 45, and his 20-month-old son, Everly Bear, are rarely seen without each other. Of fatherhood, Anthony says, "I sleep when I can, but he's letting me off pretty easy so far. He's a very calm and peaceful kid."
Singer-songwriter Chris Cornell, 44, father to Lillian Jean, 9, Toni, 4½, and Christopher Nicholas, 3, believes in getting down and dirty with his kids at bath time and during diaper changes. "That kind of hands-on care creates a deep connection you otherwise wouldn't have," he says.
Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, 29, has matured since the birth of daughter Harlow Winter Kate, 17 months. From cooling his partying ways to launching a charitable foundation, it's obvious Harlow is now his top priority. Joel tells PEOPLE, "I can't imagine life without her. She's the most important thing in the world to us."
Velvet Revolver guitarist Saul "Slash" Hudson, 43, may be immortalized in a video game, but in real life he regularly hits the red carpet with rocker-wannabe sons London Emilio, 7, and Cash Anthony, 5.
The only child of two country stars, singer Shooter Jennings spent his first few months of life on his parent's tour bus. So it was only natural that Shooter would bring daughter Alabama Gypsyrose, 19 months, on his tour bus, too! Since her birth, he says, "All the priorities in my life have just changed."
As a divorcé, Travis Barker, former drummer of band Blink-182, truly values the time he has with kids Alabama Luella, 3, Landon Asher, 5½, and Atiana Cecelia, 10. "I stay with them the entire, entire time on weekends," he says. "I'm obsessed with my children."
Former Spacehog singer Royston Langdon generally keeps a low profile, but when it comes to heading out in NYC with son Milo William, 4, the doting dad isn't afraid to open up.
