Guitar with Wings : WLJ's Musical Journey on Six Strings Hardback
In 1978, Laurence Juber was plucked from the London studio world by Paul McCartney, who asked him to play lead guitar in what was to become the final incarnation of Paul's post-Beatles group Wings.
He recorded and toured with the band for three years, during which time they won a Grammy(R) and scored numerous chart hits.
The band has enjoyed a popularity that goes beyond simply that of Paul McCartney's 1970s era backing group.
This book brings that final chapter to life with a unique collection of unseen photographs, stories and memorabilia that show Wings at work and play.
When Wings folded in 1981, the guitarist relocated to the USA and settled in Los Angeles to raise a family.
Since then he has become one of Hollywood's most in-demand studio players and has gained world-wide recognition as a virtuoso concert performer, recording artist and composer.
It's the compelling story of a life on six strings. Juber's childhood in post-World War II London; a musician coming of age during the British Invasion; his emergent career as one of London's top session guitarists; being selected by Sir Paul to play lead guitar in his post-Beatles band Wings; becoming one of Hollywood's most in-demand players; his recognition as a unique performer, recording artist and composer.
