Wings guitarist Henry McCullough critically ill
Best known for work with McCartney, Pink Floyd
The guitarist is best known for two moments in classic rock: His guitar solo on Paul McCartney and Wings’ hit “My Love” and the voice on Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” that says “I don’t know. I was really drunk at the time.”
The British guitarist was with Wings for only 18 months in the early ‘70s but left a stamp on the band and popular music. Perhaps his most high-profile gig was as Joe Cocker’s guitarist at Woodstock in 1969 – ironically, playing on a Beatles song, “A Little Help From My Friends.” Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page recorded the guitar on Cocker's studio version, but McCullough held his own live.
