Sir Paul McCartney dedicates Q to Linda
Sir Paul McCartney dedicated a Q Award to his late wife Linda yesterday (25.10.10).
The singer and songwriter appeared at the ceremony to collect the Classic Album prize for 1973 disc 'Band On The Run' - which he recorded with Wings, a group which included Linda, and is considered his most defining post-Beatles album.
Paul told how the recording of the record was a "struggle" because of circumstances which arose around it being made in Lagos and his personal difficulty of following The Beatles legacy.
He said: "As they were about to leave to record the album, two band members left the band and then when they arrived in Lagos - where it was recorded - they were mugged and lost the tapes.
"Linda was getting s*****d off for being in the band. I was getting s*****d off for letting her in the band. But we finally got it together on this album."
He added: "This one's for Linda."
Linda married Paul in 1969 and the couple had four children together, although she sadly passed away in 1998 after battling cancer.Posted on 26 Oct 2010 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
