Very True, Liam. I remember seeing on Wingspan that Linda didn't really know how to play piano at all. Paul just basically taught her basic stuff so she could tour on the initial Wings tour of the UK. And let's not forget Linda's flat voice. It was all out of love. I've always respected that.

It seems to me that was Linda that played keyboard on "Wild Life"... It´s very mild to play and I think was not difficult to her capacity.
On BOTR maybe was her on some kboard lines on the 1st part, don´t think so? Any other song or line that´s supposed she played?


Peace.

Well, who would you rather have singing - Linda or Yoko?

Linda gets my vote - every time!

Certainly Linda's voice has my vote. Yoko's "avant-gard" style with her sharpy and annoying voice is very hard to listen.

Peace.

Well, there you are, then! I really enjoy Cook Of The House, personally. The song is meant to be light-hearted, and Linda isn't taking it too seriously

The song isn't really about much. The lyrics probably employed the "anything for a rhyme" strategy. Musically, though, it's excellent - although it could have been quicker - which it is when done live.

I agree. Who cares about lyrics anyway - and the saxophone riff is the best and most memorrable riff I have ever heard.
