Sir Paul's tribute to star McCullough; UK BULLETINS.

SIR Paul McCartney has paid a glowing tribute to his late Wings bandmate Henry McCullough.

The renowned guitarist, who also played with Joe Cocker and jammed with Jimi Hendrix, died yesterday, four years after a severe heart attack left him incapacitated.

McCullough, 72, originally from Portstewart, Northern Ireland, was said to have been the only Irish musician to have played at the famous Woodstock festival in 1969.

While he may not have been a household name, he counted Marianne Faithfull and The Who among those he jammed with.

He also played lead guitar on Wings' James Bond theme, Live And Let Die. He is perhaps best known for his solo on the band's number-one hit My Love.
