Sir Paul McCartney dedicated a Q Award to his late wife Linda yesterday (25.10.10).

The singer and songwriter appeared at the ceremony to collect the Classic Album prize for 1973 disc 'Band On The Run' - which he recorded with Wings, a group which included Linda, and is considered his most defining post-Beatles album.

Paul told how the recording of the record was a "struggle" because of circumstances which arose around it being made in Lagos and his personal difficulty of following The Beatles legacy.

He said: "As they were about to leave to record the album, two band members left the band and then when they arrived in Lagos - where it was recorded - they were mugged and lost the tapes.

"Linda was getting s*****d off for being in the band. I was getting s*****d off for letting her in the band. But we finally got it together on this album."

He added: "This one's for Linda."

Linda married Paul in 1969 and the couple had four children together, although she sadly passed away in 1998 after battling cancer.
