From Down at the barns.
Check out this video and see how this iconic tour bus has been restored! Paul & Linda McCartney, Denny Laine, Henry McCullough and Denny Seiwell the Wings line up from 1972 toured Europe on this vintage bus, and possibly the inspiration for songs like My Love and Live and Let Die which may have been written on this bus and featured on the Red Rose Speedway Album that followed. You’ll get to see the inside and outside of the bus, and learn about the fascinating history of it. This is a must-watch video if you’re interested in vintage touring buses or the history of the Paul McCartney and Wings.
In 1972 Paul McCartney embarked on the Wings over Europe tour and leased a brightly coloured open top bus which became known as Wings Over Europe, the bus WNO 481 as it’s sometimes known not only featured funky art work but inside contained a fridge, washing machine bean bags and beds but once the tour was over the vehicle ended up back in normal service but was eventually bought by a collector who lived in Tenerife. In this episode we see how the bus was restored by Brad Earl and his team and through the work of Tom Jennings the new owner.
Check out the full interview with Tom Jennings on the Andrew Dixon Channel which contains some excellent content related to The Beatles and Paul McCartney
Thank you to Brad Earl and Tom Jennings for allowing us to make this video of the bus and Kevin Heuston our camera man.
