2001-May-09: From the Cannes Film Festival

Sir Paul launched his Wingspan documentary today in France at the Cannes Film Festival.
During a press conference at the Majestic hotel, Sir Paul fielded questions not only about Wings, but also about his future with Heather Mills:

"There is a chance I may get married again, but that is a decision we will make in private and only then will we make it public.  It is quite embarrassing when people come up to me in the street and say congratulations.  I can say here and now we are not engaged, but there is a good chance I will get married in the future."

Sir Paul also revealed that Heather is not actually a Beatles fan:

"Heather had a very tough childhood which has been well documented. As a result she missed a lot of the Beatles stuff, it is a generation thing, in fact she prefers Wings to the Beatles. I will go as far as to say she is a massive Wings fan. I suppose that is quite funny."

 "Wings was a form of therapy. I went through a rough time after the Beatles and didn't know if I wanted to carry on.  I suggested to Linda that we should start a band and straight away I knew it was the right thing to do.  I suppose Wings helped me through a very difficult time."

Linda was a member of Wings from the start despite the fact that she was unable to play a musical instrument:

"She made a tremendous difference to the band and quickly learned to play keyboards and harmonize beautifully. Michael Jackson even requested that Linda play keyboards on one of our collaborations, and Michael Jackson isn't stupid,"
