Présentation de l'éditeur

After the breakup of the Beatles in 1971, Paul McCartney formed Wings with his wife Linda on keyboards, ex-Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine, and American session drummer Denny Seiwell. For ten dramatic and turbulent years, the band weathered the critics, endured pot busts, survived a harrowing recording stint in Nigeria, changed drummers constantly, and produced a great deal of remarkable music. McGee's tale of one of the most successful bands of the seventies—the first book to focus exclusively on Paul's post-Beatles years-tells the stories behind the #1 hits "Listen To What the Man Said," "My Love," "Band on the Run," "Jet," "With a Little Luck," and "Coming Up." McGee reveals the band's inner dynamics and its relationship with the press and public, examining Paul's determination to pursue a new sound, the criticisms Linda initially got from fans and bandmates, and the character conflicts that kept the lineup changing.
Appendices include interviews with former Wings guitarist Henry McCullough, a complete discography, a list of singles with Paul's comments on each, and rankings from the sales charts. Band on the Run also includes a trove of rare Wings promotional material—album covers, posters, ads, and candid photos of the band on tour.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Indispensable à tout fan des Wings ! 1 août 2004
Depuis des années, les livres sur les Beatles fleurissent par centaines. Un trou était toujours resté dans toute cette littérature : une bio digne de ce nom sur la carrière solo riche et merveilleuse du plus doué des Fab Four...
Et voici ce livre qui nous raconte la fabuleuse épopée de Macca dans les seventies avec son groupe Wings par un fan de la première heure qui a assisté aux concerts et collectionné de magnifiques documents promo reproduits tout au long de l'ouvrage.
Un bio complète et objective à posséder absolument !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best book on McCartney's post-Beatles career 11 mai 2003
Par John Doc Holliday - Publié sur
Of all the books on Paul McCartney, this is the best one on his career, post-Beatles. Unlike most other bios, this one gets about as deep as it can in telling Wings' story.
I found this book very even-handed in its approach. No whitewashes or hatchet jobs. It even tells the stories of the recordings of some of McCartney's and Wings' lesser works, "Ram" and "Red Rose Speedway," two albums rarely discussed in other books.
The book offers a list of every Wings concert, as well as the set lists from their tours.
As of now, this is the best Wings bio out there, and is worthy of any McCartney fan's time.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Twenty Years Worth of Research? I Think Not 18 avril 2005
Par Chris Brewer - Publié sur
As the back cover states that Mr. McGee is an 'authority on Wings", I'm here to tell you he is not. Errors are found on just about every other page ranging from:

Wrong dates given as to when sessions took place (Ram, RRS, McGear, etc...)

Songs being released when they haven't (Robber's Ball)

Songs being listed as recorded from one time frame when they were either recorded years earlier or later (When The Wind Is Blowing, Seaside Woman)

McCullough and Seiwell recording with Denny Laine in 1980 (sorry, didn't happen)

The interview as being described 'real' from 1976 where the reporter was asleep was actually from Australia 1975 and the reporter is a local hero called Norman Gunston who 'pulls pranks' on celebs even though the Mac's were aware of it. So in other words, that whole interview was staged.

I think the biggest crime of this book was to re-tell stories from one JoJo Laine (the 1975 housekeeper Rose story, Jimmy contemplating murdering the Macs, etc...) that she initially told to Geoffrey Giuliano. Come on, every knows JoJo can be trusted about as far as you can throw her and those stories are the work of Geoffrey and JoJo wanting to dump crap on the McCartney's legacy.

About the only thing this book is usefull for are the quotes from Paul, Linda & Wings collected from various magazines over the past 30 + years.

Nothing new isn't reported that hasn't already been told in previous books on Macca. He even missed a golden oppurtunity while speaking with Henry McCullough in 2002 about asking him to comment on the original Band On The Run rehearsal tapes from the Summer of '73 that Henry has kept all these years. He's the only one with copies and it would've shed light on how far the album was truly developed at that point and which guitar riff was it that got him so heated with Macca that he up and quit.

So to sum up... Skip this book and just enjoy the music. Maybe someday someone will get it right but not Mr. McGee!

I am definetly a die hard fan of the beatles since time immemorial and this conviction never cease to exist to this day. However, it is also imperative to know the musical activities of every member of the beatles after they disbanded, indeed there is light at the end of the tunnel after the post beatle era. One visible and yet subliminal effort during the post beatle era, was the birth of Paul Mccartney and Wings. This book takes you to the inner mind of Paul and his inevitable predicament to continue his musical career by forming a new band and having a new life with Linda. In this book you will also witness the other side of Paul Mccartney not as an ex-beatle, but as the band leader of the Wings. Moreover, discover the fraustrations of Linda Mccartney as a musician in her own right. I highly recommend this book to all genuine beatlemaniacs and die hard fans of Sir Paul Mccartney,like me!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Based on twenty years' worth of research and interviews 15 mai 2003
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur
Band On The Run: A History Of Paul Mccartney And Wings by Garry McGee (who spend more than twenty years in collecting materials and interviews for this book) is the informative biography of the famous former Beatles member that concentrates exclusively on the music Paul McCartney made after he left the Beatles and strived to refine his music with a personally chosen group of studio musicians. Based on twenty years' worth of research and interviews, Band On The Run successfully strives to present an accurate portrait of Paul McCartney, the Wings band, and their musical contribution to popular culture in the twentieth century.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Life Of Wings 26 août 2005
Par P Magnum - Publié sur
Garry McGee's Band On The Run: A History of Paul McCartney & Wings is a fine account of the 1970's musical output of a rock legend. McCartney's music with Wings is often overlooked and dismissed, but looking back, he crafted some of the most enduring pop songs of his career. Mr. McGee does a great job of chronicling the recording sessions that produced the music. If you a fan of Paul McCartney and Wings, then this book is worth your time.
