An intimate scrapbook charting how Wings grew to become one of the biggest-selling acts of the 70s. At the same time, Paul McCartney and his wife Linda, a fellow band member, were raising a family: the book is also personal record of the band's evolution through to the very end of that decade.
In the 1970's, Paul McCartney's Wings had a hard act to follow, the Beatles, but brought us what many have described as the purest rock music of the decade - that brief period after music stopped selling revolution and before it began selling pierced navel rings. Wings was huge: the group had more No 1 singles (six) than the Stones, Eagles or three other ex-Beatles combined. This is an intimate scrapbook charting how the band grew and became one of the biggest-selling acts of the 70s. At the same time Paul and his wife Linda, a fellow band member, were raising a family, and the book is a personal record of the Wings' beginnings after the break-up of the world's most famous group through to the very end of that decade. Apart from the insight into the dynamics of a hugely popular band, it reminds the reader of some of the songs and how they were written, recorded and performed: "Band on the Run", "Mull of Kintyre", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Jet" and "Junior's Farm".
