45: Denny Laine
Denny Laine was a co-founding member of the Moody Blues. He left the band in 1966 to form the Electric String Orchestra. From there it was Ginger Baker’s Air Force. Along the way, he got to know Paul McCartney musically and personally and after some other projects, it was on to help form Wings with Paul and Linda.
He left Wings in 1981 and kept a fairly low profile, but has released a dozen solo albums along the way. He was finally inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April of 2018 with his fellow members of the Moody Blues.
These days, he performs with the Denny Laine Trio and Denny Laine & the Moody Wing Band.
