Wings – The Artist/s
Paul McCartney and Wings (also known by their original name Wings) were a British–American rock band formed in 1971 by former Beatle Paul McCartney, his wife Linda on keyboards, session drummer Denny Seiwell, and former Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine. Wings were noted for frequent personnel changes along with their commercial successes, going through three lead guitarists and four drummers. However, the core trio of the McCartneys and Laine remained intact throughout the group’s existence. In 1977, the band earned their only UK number one single, with “Mull of Kintyre”, which became the then-best-selling UK single in history.
Mull of Kintyre – The Song
“Mull of Kintyre“ is a song by the British–American rock band Wings written by Paul McCartney and Denny Laine. The song was written in tribute to the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland and its headland, the Mull of Kintyre, where McCartney has owned High Park Farm since 1966. The song was Wings’ biggest hit in Britain and is one of the best selling singles of all time in the United Kingdom, where it became the 1977 Christmas number one and was the first single to sell over two million copies nationwide. Lyrically it is a love song really, about how Paul McCartney enjoyed being at the Mull of Kintyre and imagining he was travelling away and wanting to get back there.
