Biography

Wings, also known as Paul McCartney and Wings, were an Anglo-American rock band formed in 1971 by former Beatle Paul McCartney with his wife Linda McCartney, session drummer Denny Seiwell, and former Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine. Wings were noted for frequent personnel changes as well as commercial success, going through three lead guitarists and four drummers. However, the core trio of the McCartneys and Laine remained intact throughout the group's existence.

Created following the McCartneys' 1971 album Ram, the band's first two albums, Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway (the latter featuring guitarist Henry McCullough), were less successful than Paul McCartney's work with the Beatles. After the release of the title track of the James Bond movie Live and Let Die, McCullough and Seiwell resigned from the band. The McCartneys and Laine then released 1973's Band on the Run, a commercial and critical success that spawned two top ten singles in "Jet" and the title track. Following the album, the band recruited guitarist Jimmy McCulloch and drummer Geoff Britton (who shortly after joining quit the band, being replaced by Joe English), releasing the Venus and Mars album in 1975 (including the US number one single "Listen to What the Man Said".) Their next album, Wings at the Speed of Sound, intended by the band to be more of a group effort, featured the hit singles "Silly Love Songs" and "Let 'Em In".
