James McCartney

From the FUV Vault: James McCartney

by Darren DeVivo

 

We first heard from James McCartney, the only son and youngest child of Paul and Linda McCartney, back in 1997 when he contributed guitar to his father’s song, “Heaven On A Sunday”, from Paul’s album Flaming Pie. James had an even larger role on his dad’s 2001 album Driving Rain, pitching in on two songs, “Spinning On An Axis” and “Back In The Sunshine Again”. James also played on some of the material that made its way on to his mother’s posthumously released collection, Wide Prairie from 1998.
