By Laurence Juber.
Guitar With Wings is the musical odyssey of Grammy Award-winning artist
Laurence Juber. From his roots as a noted London session player, his three-year
stint with Paul McCartney's Wings as lead guitarist, to his solo career as an
innovative finger style guitar composer and performer, this photographic memoir
is a snapshot of a One Man Band on the Run.
“A superb pictorial account of LJ’s musical journey from
first meeting Paul McCartney in a Wembley men’s room to becoming a member of
this fan’s favorite line-up of Wings. Master Juber’s well-written words and
never-before-seen photos nearly match his unbelievable talents as one of the
world’s most respected and gifted guitar players. A wonderful read.” – Chris
Carter; Host “Breakfast with The Beatles” KLOS-FM Los Angeles, California
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.
About the book... 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® and scored numerous chart hits. The band has
enjoyed a popularity that goes beyond simply that of Paul McCartney’s 70s 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.
