Guitar With Wings with Laurence Juber
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.
