February 2020: We received messages of support from the great Denny Laine and his partner, Elizabeth.

Denny was very glad to hear you’re restoring the bus as it is a part of Wings early history. Denny has relayed some happy times on that bus. We only wish you the best of luck on restoring the bus and look forward to seeing its wonderful completion! It’s exciting to hear the museums are interested to display the bus. It’s possible that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (in USA) may be interested in it too, since Denny and Paul are inductees. Denny and I send our best to you. We look forward to seeing the progress.

Denny Laine was born as Brian Frederick Hines on 29 October 1944, in Tyseley, Birmingham.  He is an English musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist.

Laine was an original member of The Moody Blues. He sang the band’s first hit, “Go Now” in 1964. In 1970 he played lead guitar on Ginger Baker’s debut album.

Laine co-founded Paul McCartney and Wings and was with the band from 1971 to 1981. He co-wrote Mull of Kintyre, one of the UK’s biggest selling singles ever and the first to sell two million copies in the UK.

In 2018 Denny Laine was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Moody Blues.
