As previously stated numerous times: McCartney's own solo tracks appear on Wings compilations. Why is this a sticking point? Because it jams a big fork in the road of your fluffy argument that Wings dramatically altered McCartney's sound. Exactly how significant was the Wings sound if McCartney himself seems to think that his own solo work (which had little to no involvement with the other band members) should fit alongside the band's music? While the other band members proved to be capable musicians, *none* of them came into their own. None of the other band members could write or sing anything that would advance the band's success; they just played well. None of the other band members really made a name for themselves or went on to do anything relevent post-Wings. It was *all* about McCartney. McCartney has proven that he can produce hits whether he records them with a band or entirely by himself. The other band members? Nope.

Yes, Wings proved to be an exceptional backing band for McCartney. Nothing more.
