Paul McCartney Pays Tribute to Late Wings Guitarist
“I was very sad to hear that Henry McCullough, our great Wings guitarist, passed away today,” McCartney wrote in a statement. “He was a pleasure to work with, a super-talented musician with a lovely sense of humor. “The solo he played on “My Love” was a classic that he made up on the spot in front of a live orchestra. Our deepest sympathies from my family to his.” McCullough was recruited to join Wings in 1971 and he played on the band’s 1973 album Red Rose Speedway. He also featured on the band’s James Bond theme “Live & Let Die.” He quit the group after just two years due to creative differences and went on to work with The Frankie Miller Band and Dr. Feelgood.
