Guitar with Wings : WLJ's Musical Journey on Six Strings Hardback

Description

Laurence Juber shares his life with Wings and his solo career 'on six strings' in new book. Guitar With Wings: LJ's Musical Journey on Six Strings, a photo memoir by Grammy Award-winning artist Laurence Juber. It is the story of Juber's five-decade career told through his own words, candid never-seen-before colour and black & white photos, vintage advertising materials, guitars, equipment, memorabilia and the six-string legend's encyclopaedic musical memory. "In the thirty-something years since Wings folded I would look at the boxes of photographs and accumulated memorabilia, promising myself that one day I'd take the time to organize it all," "Contrary to my expectations that the Wings era would be absorbed into the general arc of Paul McCartney's career, interest in the band itself has continued to flourish and I recognized that I had a unique perspective to offer." Juber said the 50-year anniversary of his love affair with the guitar and the public's on-going fascination for Wings proved a catalyst for this retrospective. "The photos triggered long-forgotten memories of my time in the band, underscoring how my studies at 'McCartney University' were a bridge from my early musical experiences to my later 'solo flight' and how much the couple-consciousness of Paul and Linda McCartney proved to be a template for my own romantic and creative relationship with my wife Hope,"
