He made a Wings-tribute cd a couple of years ago, called "Wings at the Sound of Denny Laine" . Other than that I haven't heard of anything he did after Japanese Tears, his solo LP from 1980 with a little help from his friend Paul.

To go on with Denny: was he anything more than just Paul's slave? Did he have any influence in Wings? Would it be completely different if Denny wouldn't have been there? I doubt it.

Denny was a lot more than Paul's slave. You have to remember he was limited in the power or the strength he had due to Paul. He was a good guy who was loyal to a man for years. Not easy working for Paul - he can be a real difficult !!

Denny Laine was good for the group - Band on the Run would have never happened if it wasn't for Denny

Denny also played on Tug Of War, if you check your liner notes . . .

The difference between genius and insanity is merely the difference between success and failure.

I read a few years back form a magazine called BEATLEFAN that Denny Laine was living in Spain and studying classical guitar.

I read in some magazines a few years ago that Denny did an autobiography that refers some indiscretions about the work in the Wings band, and about Paul's family private life, and due to this, Paul was hurted so much, and made him very angry with Denny. After that, Paul never met Denny anymore. Is that true? Why did Denny something like that, after almost ten years of a good relationship?

I thought it was a financial problem (as one would expect form Paul). Denny was on the interview disc of the 25th anniversary edition of Band On The Run in 1999 (1999 minus 25 = 1974), so maybe they're back on speaking terms.

Someone I knew heard this one, and he liked it. Only shame is that he covered Band On The Run and Blackbird. He shouldn't have done that.

Anyway, here's the address:
