Join us as we look back at all the bold-faced names we've lost in 2023…
Denny Laine — the British singer-guitarist best known from his time with the Moody Blues and Wings — died on Dec. 5 after a week in the ICU following a lengthy battle with interstitial lung disease, his wife, Elizabeth Hines, announced.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member was 79.
Former bandmate Paul McCartney took to Instagram to honor his old friend, writing, "I am very saddened to hear that my ex-bandmate, Denny Laine, has died," he began his post.
"I have many fond memories of my time with Denny: from the early days when The Beatles toured with the Moody Blues. Our two bands had a lot of respect for each other and a lot of fun together. Denny joined Wings at the outset. He was an outstanding vocalist and guitar player," Paul continued. "His most famous performance is probably 'Go Now' an old Bessie Banks song which he would sing brilliantly. He and I wrote some songs together the most successful being 'Mull of Kintyre' which was a big hit in the Seventies. We had drifted apart but in recent years managed to reestablish our friendship and share memories of our times together.
"Denny was a great talent with a fine sense of humour and was always ready to help other people," Paul wrote, concluding his post, "He will be missed by all his fans and remembered with great fondness by his friends. I send my condolences and best wishes to his wife, Elizabeth and family. Peace and love Denny. It was a pleasure to know you. We are all going to miss you."
