Denny Laine & The Moddy Wing Band

Rock

For a few months at the height of the British invasion, Denny Laine was one of the most recognizable voices on the entire British music scene. As the lead singer on the Moody Blues' recording of 'Go Now' - a worldwide multi-million seller - he stood out in a large pack, and did splendidly. His soulful, agonized lead vocal performance, coupled with Mike Pinder's chiming piano, proved irresistable on the radio. After leaving the Moody Blues Laine's next major gig was as a member of Ginger Baker's Air Force, a big-band rock outfit that was a partial offshoot of Blind Faith. Following this musical excursion Laine joined forces with Paul McCartney and Wings. The group was McCartney (joined by his wife Linda McCartney) on bass, guitar, piano and vocals, with Laine at the core on guitar, bass and vocals. When Wings collapsed Laine took a step back from the spotlight to work on several solo albums.
