Denny Laine, co-founder of the Moody Blues and Wings, dies at 79

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "GO NOW!")

MOODY BLUES: (Singing) Since you got to go, oh, you'd better go now.

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. Musician Denny Laine has died. He was 79 years old. He was born in Birmingham, England, and he sang lead vocals on one of the 1960s' biggest hits, "Go Now!" with his band, The Moody Blues. Laine later co-founded the band Wings and, with his bandmate Paul McCartney, would go on to write one of the bestselling songs in British history. That's 1977's "Mull Of Kintyre."
