8: Band on the Run–the origin of a hit song part 2!
Join us in Part 2 of our story where we investigate the challenges that Paul faced in recording his hit song Band on the Run; his life-threatening encounter, abandonment, culture shock, and using the new instruments of the 60s and 70s. We also investigate how Band on the Run is somehow connected to the song Desperado by the Eagles!
So settle in for Part 2 of our narrative. You will be intrigued by a series of revelations that you will find entertaining and informative!
