What about Buddy Holly? You made a whole tribute album to him at the height of Wings’ fame in 1977, called “Holly Days.” How did that come about?
Everybody loved Buddy Holly. He was the ultimate influence when it came to songwriting. Paul and I knew all the Buddy Holly songs. We could jam to any of those things. The Buddy Holly album came about because he bought… some of [Holly’s] publishing. At the same time, he’s promoting Buddy’s music. We were gonna do it with all Nashville people, but the guy who was going [to] produce was busy at the time. Paul was up in Scotland and he put the backing tracks together and I went up, did a few extra things, and we used that instead of going to Nashville and doing it that way. That’s the way that worked and it was a tribute to Buddy, that’s all. He was the first singer-songwriter.Denny Laine – From From the Moody Blues to Wings to the Rock Hall: Q&A with Denny Laine | Ideastream Public Media, February 15, 2023
