Henry McCullough Heart Attack: Family Says Paul McCartney And Wings Guitarist Is Critically Ill

Sad news for the family and friends of Henry McCullough.

The 69-year-old Paul McCartney & Wings guitarist is critically ill after suffering from a heart attack on Monday, Nov. 5. His family says McCullough, who is one of the world's best-known musicians, is not doing well.

"He is a very special person," his sister Rae Morrison tells BBC News, adding that she and her siblings have recieved many messages of support from friends and fans. "We really are very worried for him, his sister is on her way home from Florida and his brother is coming home from Glasgow," she continued.

McCullough was invited by McCartney to join Wings in the 1970s and spent 18 months touring with them. He was also a member of Joe Cocker's band and performed with them at the legendary Woodstock concert in 1969.

And McCartney wasn't the only Beatle McCullough worked alongside. He joined George Harrison's label, Dark Horse, to record his 1975 solo album, "Mind Your Own Business. "

Our prayers are with him and his family.
