In the 1970s, Paul McCartney's Wings had a hard act to follow, the Beatles, but brought us the purest rock music of the decade - that brief period after music stopped selling revolution and before it began selling pierced navel rings. Wings was huge: it had more No 1 singles (six) than the Stones, Eagles or three other ex-Beatles combined. Wingspan is an intimate scrapbook charting how the band grew and became one of the biggest-selling acts of the seventies. At the same time Paul and his wife Linda, a fellow band member, were raising a family. The book is a personal record of the Wings' beginnings after the break-up of the world's most famous group through to the very end of that decade. Apart from a unique insight into the dynamics of a hugely popular band, it reminds the reader of some wonderful songs and how they were written, recorded and performed: 'Band on the Run', 'Mull of Kintyre', 'Maybe I'm Amazed', 'Jet' and 'Junior's Farm'.
