Acerca de Mike McGear
Mike McGear is actually Paul McCartney's brother; he changed his name in the mid-'60s shortly after the Beatles become famous, not wishing to be perceived as riding Paul's coattails. He was a member of the Scaffold, who recorded some fairly successful comedy rock releases in the late '60s (their "Thank U Very Much" and "Lily Pink" singles were big British hits). In 1974, he recorded a solo album with plenty of help from Paul, who wrote or co-wrote almost all the songs and sang backup; fellow Wings Linda McCartney, Denny Laine, and Jimmy McCullough also play and sing. The album, which unsurprisingly recalled Wings, attracted some critical notice, but sold poorly. ~ Richie Unterberger
