Laurence Juber started his carreer with Afterglow, an obscure psychedelic band based in Oregon and formed in Los Angeles, 1965. Afterglow released only one album in 1968 before vanishing.
In 1978 Juber won an audition to become lead guitarist for Paul
McCartney's Wings. He recorded and toured for three years, earning
rave notices for his work on the hit singles Goodnight
Tonight and Coming Up, and on the
album Back To The
Egg, winning a Grammy award for Best Rock Instrumental for the
track Rockestra Theme. After McCartney
folded Wings in 1981, Juber relocated to the Los Angeles area to raise
a family and to concentrate on composing and studio work ....]
