Death: Sep. 27, 1979

Jimmy McCulloch was the lead guitarist for Thunderclap Newman (yes, he's on their hit record "Something In The Air). After Thunderclap Newman broke up in 1971, he went on to play with Stone The Crows, replacing Les Harvey who was electrocuted in 1972 until they broke up in 1973. He soon went into session work, but then he joined Paul McCartney & Wings as lead guitarist (replacing Henry McCullough). He played on four albums with Wings : Venus and Mars (1975), Speed Of Sound (1976), Wings Over America (1977), and London Town (1978). He then went on to work with the Small Faces, Wild Horses, and the Dukes before dying of a drug overdose in 1979.
