Henry Campbell Liken McCullough (21 July 1943 – 14 June 2016) was best known for his work as a member of Paul McCartney & Wings, Spooky Tooth,The Grease Band and Sweeney's Men. He also performed and recorded as a solo artist and session musician.

In 1971 Paul asked McCullough to join his new band, Wings, alongside Denny Laine and Denny Seiwell. His guitar solo on "My Love" has been described as one of rock music’s greatest solos. Musical differences with McCartney, however, saw McCullough move on the eve of the Band on the Run sessions. He spent two years in the band, playing lead guitar on "Hi, Hi, Hi", "Live and Let Die" as well as "My Love"

  1. Henry was a nice guy showed me some chords and the lead part for Memphis way back in the sixties (he played in the Skyrockets at the Aster ballroom) will always remember his gentle encouragement. RIP
