McCartney: Ex-Wings Guitarist Henry McCullough Has Died At 72

Ex-Wings guitarist Henry McCullough has died at the age of 72. The cause of death was not disclosed.

The Irishman joined Paul McCartney and company after they’d released Wild Life in 1971 and toured with the group around England in a van. He played on the band’s next album, Red Rose Speedway — that’s his guitar solo on the number-one hit “My Love.” He also worked on “Live and Let Die” from the James Bond film of the same name, but quit the band before Band on the Run.

McCullough also played with Spooky Tooth and Joe Cocker, and was the voice saying “I don’t know; I was really drunk at the time” at the end of “Money” on Pink Floyd‘s Dark Side of the Moon.
