On May 11th 2001 ABC aired what fans of Paul McCartney and Wings thought was going to be a Beatles Anthology style documentary on the band Wings! What they got was something completely different! Welcome Back to 2Legs! This week we revisit the mangled Wingspan documentary CD. Originally discussed as a film release then a two disc DVD set to a 88 minute made for TV show, die hards felt cheated as it felt more like a love story then a film about a band! Accompanied with a CD and book but again featured no contributions from any living member of Wings!
Tom & Andy give their candid opinions on the Film, Album and Book!

2Legs is back and this week we are incredibly proud to have Laurence Juber as our guest! The Ex-Member of Wings takes us through his career starting as an inspiring guitarist at age 13, earning his music degree at London University's Goldsmiths College!
Laurence then walks us through his beginnings as a sessions man, working with George Martin and playing on the soundtracks The Spy Who Loved Me and The Muppet Movie!
Finally we discuss his time with Wings and going solo!
2Legs is proud to welcome Engineer and Producer Julian Mendelsohn to the show! The Off The Ground Co-Producer shares many of his amazing stories with Tom and Andy. Julian told us about his roots in the industry, emigrating to London, eventually moving back to Australia. Other than working with our kid he has produced/engineered for many celebrated artists/groups such as Peter Gabriel, Yes, and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. We also get to hear him explain how he came to befriend Paul 'Wix' Wickens which ultimately led to the collaboration with Macca! Julian also was gracious enough to give us some excellent anecdotes from some of the Off The Ground sessions and some of his favorite tracks from the LP. We hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!

2Legs is back with part two of our collaboration with Things We Said Today podcast (Featuring Ken Michaels and Darren DeVivo!) In part one we discussed what we'd like to see released from the vaults from John, George, and Ringo camps. For Part 2 we continue the conversation with our Beatles and McCartney wish lists!
In 1988 Paul was asked on the TODAY show regarding the recently then published controversial The Lives of John Lennon: "If a book like this were to come out about you, what would you do?" Macca: "About me? I'd probably read that one!"
2Legs returns this week and our topic is McCartney Biographies. We trace the historiography of the very meager beginnings of McCartney-related texts first appearing in the late 70s all the way to present day with later works by Sounes and Norman. This week we are joined by Mr. Joe Wisbey, the curator of the Instagram account @BooksBeatles and he offers a very refreshing analysis on Macca and Beatles texts in general.
Tom, Andy & Joe discuss the popular ones, and a few that have flown "under the radar".
People said she's never float
But one night when the moon was high
The grey goose flew away
Rock music journalist legend Chris Salewicz is this weeks guest on 2Legs! Chris tells about his early beginnings at NME (New Musical Express). His take on the Profumo affair, the story of how his 1986 book, The Definitive Biography came to fruition. And finally, his legendary interview with McCartney for the launch of Q magazine in 1986!
If you haven't heard it: here is the link for Chris' legendary interview with Macca! We strongly suggest you give this a listen either before or after our interview. Paul was never as open as this rarely ever again. And for historical value alone, Chris' interview with Paul will go down as one of the more important ones ever.
