English songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Denny is best known for his roles as former guitarist and lead singer of The Moody Blues and, later, co-founder with Paul McCartney of Wings. Denny was one of three constants in Wings, along with Paul and Linda McCartney.
Wings’ Band on the Run hit #1 in the Billboard® Top 40 Hit Charts three different times and eventually the album went triple platinum. In the UK, it spent seven weeks at #1 on the Guinness® Charts of British Hits Singles and went on to be the top selling British album of 1974.
In 1975, Wings won the Grammy® Award for Band on the Run, the title track from the 1974 album.
With the 1976 release of Wings at the Speed of Sound, Wings had become one of the most successful groups of the decade with a top-grossing tour to follow. Denny performed solos during their concerts on their Wings Over America Tour and showcased his talents on many songs, most notably "Go Now" and “Time to Hide”. With Wings, Denny enjoyed the biggest commercial and critical successes of his career, including co-writing the hit "Mull of Kintyre", which reached #1 in the UK’s Guinness® Charts of British Hits Singles in 1977 and became the UK's highest-selling single until that time. At the height of the British Invasion, Denny Laine was one of the most recognizable voices on the music scene.
“No guitarist was more integral to Paul McCartney’s post Beatles career than Denny Laine.”- Gibson Guitars
Denny left the Moody Blues and formed The Electric String Band, writing the hit Say You Don’t Mind, and opened shows for Jimi Hendrix in London. Denny joined Balls and Ginger Bakers Air Force, singing lead on the memorable Man of Constant Sorrow. Throughout his career, Denny has also worked with various members of The Beatles, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Cream, ELO, The Zombies, The Hollies and many more.
