Nonostante grandi album post-Beatles come “Band on the Run” o “Flowers in the Dirt” la carriera nei Wings di Paul è stata tutt’altro che facile.Lo stesso baronetto afferma che la critica lo ha sempre attaccato e in alcuni casi anche pesantemente.
“Wings was difficult but rewarding. I sometimes wonder if it was crazy after The Beatles to do the entire thing again. We struggled for years with Wings because we decided to try and do it from the ground up instead of coming in at some high level with superstars so we had to try and learn our craft all over again.’’
Ma Paul,che nella sua nuova band vantava membri del calibro di Danny Lane e Danny Saiwell,affermò che quelle battute d’arresto (create dalla critica) crearono all’interno dei Wings un “cameratismo gratificante”
“What I hoped would happen did, that we would get to know each other, the feel of each other not just me getting lumped in with five other famous people,” he added.
“So we learned this is a special thing being in a band, which is about understanding each other. So the memory of the Seventies is that yes, it was difficult but the fact it worked was rewarding.’
