Hey get this, Denny Laine is playing in Concord, about 45 from where I live, and playing Band On the Run (the album) with his band in its entirety. Only $20 for tickets! Debating whether to go, it's November 13.

It is your duty to go and give us a full report. :-)

Can buy Joe love! Here's the link that explains how. http://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/getting-better/forum-changes/page-9/#p110183

I don't know, I'd like to and it's an easy drive, the only issue is that Concord is 45 minutes north of Dover (where I live), it's on a worknight (Wednesday), and I work an hour south of Dover, in Boston, so it'd be a royal pain in the ass. Which is why I probably won't go. Denny is cool, but if it was Paul I'd make it work :lol:

One night with a bit less sleep?

Only $20?

Band on the Run with one of the original players – maybe a few of the Wings songs he sang lead on as well?

What was the question again?

Well, I'd definitely do all I could to go. If only I had the chance…

There are a few good McCartney-Laine songs, "Deliver Your Children" being my favorite.

Here's my personal Denny Laine story. As a young, pre-teenage child, I was (in vain) constantly trying to get my parents to like the music I was listening to. Then one day comes this song "Go Now" by the Moody Blues. It's got this bouncy piano that would one day would be a McCartney style – but not then. I figured THAT song my parents would like. Well, they didn't hate it; that's as close as I would get to recognition.

"Go Now" was of course one of Denny Laine's main contributions to the Moody Blues (though I don't think he wrote it). I was shocked and thrilled to hear him play it on Wings Over America. I'm guessing he'll play it Nov 13.

I like all of Denny's Wings songs. I Would Only Smile is a brilliant outtake from the Red Rose Speedway sessions and will hopefully see the light of day on an official release in 2098 when we finally get the Archive Deluxe edition.

 

Wait, it appeared on Japanese Tears. Oh well, still a great song.

Dr Beatle, did you end up going or not? 

 

Can I just say he's AMAZING? 

I think Denny and Paul were a good team, though never the McLennon collaboration, of course.

This interview with Denny Laine was linked on FB. I don't know the source of the article, but someone said it was probably published around '89 or '90.

I have nothing against Denny, but he always looked so disinterested when he was playing live with Wings.  ahdn_paul_01

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

In the clip someone posted above, of him singing Go Now with PM & Wings, he looks pretty into it.  Also in Rockshow when he and PM are playing acoustic and Linda is sitting there with a tambourine or something, and McCullogh is there too, when they play I just saw a Face he seems into it enough.  If I remember right he's on 12 string for that number…but I haven't seen it in awhile.

If you're into Denny, check out his website here (sorry someone explained how to link it but I can't figure it out!): http://www.dennylaine.com.  It's not a big site, but it features a half million (usd) guitar that he is apparently trying to sell, and there is also a song dedicated to "PM".  A few other cool videos.  I looked and apparently the only show he's doing this year is 5 hours from me…probably not quite worth it. 

Wings was a great band.  Jimmy McCullogh was great as well.  Laine is a tremendously talented man, it's kindof interesting the turns his life has taken.  I can't believe he's not remembered more for his work with the Moody Blues…but then they didn't really have a frontman, or any "names" that were profiled.  Maybe going with Wings was a mistake, maybe he should have fronted a group – he could never have been PM's equal on stage.  I think he's gone where he wanted to go, and is probably where he wants to be.  At least that's the idea I got from the page.  Except, I hate to think he has to sell that incredible guitar to raise money (a '59 hollow body Gretsch, was used by Townsend in the studio, and limited use on stage, and Laine used it some too – it doesn't hold tune well enough to really use live).  But again I ramble off topic…

 

I've got nothing to say but it's ok
