WINGS SINGLE SIGNED BY PAUL AND LINDA MCCARTNEY SELLS FOR $1,200

A copy of Wings’ 1972 single ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ / ‘C Moon’ signed by both Paul McCartney and his wife Linda has sold for $1,205 after 16 bids on eBay. The late Linda added “Happy New Year” to her inscription.

‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ was originally slated as the A-side to the 45, but the song was banned in McCartney’s native England because of its drug references. So the reggae-styled ‘C Moon’ became a No. 5 U.K. hit. ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ managed to reach No. 10 in the U.S.

This version of Wings — which also included Denny Laine, Henry McCullough and Denny Seiwell — subsequently recorded the ‘Red Rose Speedway’ album, which spawned the No. 1 hit ‘My Love.’ Linda died in 1998 after a cancer battle; McCullough is currently recovering from a massive heart attack.

Meanwhile, McCartney has recently returned ‘Hi, Hi, Hi’ to his set list. The last time he played the song he was still fronting Wings.
