Wings has the fans flying in ecstasy.

Wings took off at Liverpool Empire Theatre last night when Paul McCartney came home.

From the moment he walked on stage the fans let him know he’d been away too long. It was a night of sheer magic as Paul proved together with Wings that they are one the world’s top groups.

Kicking off with “Venus and Mars” and then into “Jet” he had the capacity 2,500 crowd rocking in the aisles. They clambered over seats like lemmings to see their hero.

“Hi there, it’s great to be back,” said Paul.

Wings are a mercurial mixture. With Jimmy McCulloch lead guitar, Denny Laine rhythm, Joe English drums, and Linda, of course, on keyboards.

The blend is perfect and each one is a performer in their own right. For two hours they ran through a massive total numbers. It was sheer enjoyment all the way.

I was at that concert, 47 years ago this month (September 2022) a row of coincidences allowed me to be invited by one of Paul's bodyguards for that day and evening (I met him earlier that day) to walk me in the back door, I got to meet Paul and chat (I was in shock and can't remember one word) I can tell you he was relaxed and signed a poster of him ( I have my train ticked from London 10 am with the 15th of September 1975 stamped on it. The other time I met Paul McCartney was 1964 12 June in my home City of Adelaide, Australia. When I was 14 years of age the Beatles minus Ringo (had his tonsils out) and Jimmie Nicol fill in drummer. I was the only teenager there along with media and airport officials every one else were stopped from entering I took photos. The extention of these stories are in my published book 'Thank's Mosquito for the Great Ride' A whole chapter about those stories and Adelaide, what happened to get them to agree to come to Adelaide and me being a Beatlemaniac .in Adelaide.
