  1. I must admit, to me, “Live and Let Die” was their most memorable song. A couple of riffs and I am straight into replaying episodes of that Bond movie in my mind.

    Used to get a kick out of the Vancouver radio station that apparently got the mike feed from Linda McCartney from a concert and would play the isolated vocals on the airwaves from time to time. Always begged the question from me if her singing ability was not really the thing that attracted Paul to Linda.
