News is breaking that Denny Laine has passed away at the age of 79. Denny may not be a household name in America but some of his guitar work ranks among the most legendary and recognizable in all of rock and roll.
His work with The Moody Blues and Wings had him playing on some MASSIVE hits over the years including legendary albums such as Band on the Run.
I always thought he was an underrated guitar player – probably because he played in a band with McCartney – but his contributions as a player and writer made Wings a better band.
Rest in peace, Denny.
