Wings in Preston:
On arrival at the Guildhall we found amps being wheeled in and this raised our hopes tremendously, – just as those hopes were fading what should roll up but a silver/grey luxury coach with Denny S., Denny L., and Henry and they asked US(!) where the Bull and Royal Hotel was. Almost speechless we gave them directions and followed them. Of course the obvious happened and we got their autographs, and when we asked when Paul was arriving Denny S.
replied ”tomorrow Perhaps!”
Whilst recovering from our stroke of luck one of the bunch shouted ’’He’s herel”, and our first sight was a beaming smile from Paul, with Stella in his arms. – Now to the concert, after a friendly nod from Paul (you see we had told him where we were sitting), the concert began. I could go on for ages about this, but I’ll just say it was the best day of our lives, it was really tremendous, we only wish the ceiling hadn’t cracked, because apparently we missed 3 more numbers.
Nice one Wings, and when are you coming again? – Get on the right thing – Michael DaggeFrom Wings Fun Club newsletter #3
