CHICAGO – Paul McCartney’s second band, begun in 1971, was called “Wings,” and throughout the 1970s scored big hits with “Band on the Run,” “Live and Let Die” and “With a Little Luck.” Denny Seiwell was Wings first drummer, and guitarist Denny Laine joined the band on their first album, “Wild Life.”

Seiwell and Laine participated in The Chicago Fest for Beatles Fans in August of 2010. The Fest is a convention of sorts, where fans of the Fab Four gather for exhibits, films and meeting personalities associated with The Beatles. HollywoodChicago.com photographer Joe Arce was there, and took these exclusive portraits of the ex-Wings men.

Paul McCartney recently re-released a deluxe edition of Wing’s seminal album, “Band on the Run,” on which Laine received his first co-songwriting credit.
