McCartney’s band Wings performed the opening title sequence in the 1973 installment of the James Bond series, Live and Let Die. “Roger was a great man and of course a great James Bond who I was lucky to work with during the time of ‘Live and Let Die.’ He had a heart of gold, a great sense of humour and will be missed by the many people who loved him,” McCartney wrote.
Earlier, McCartney had also expressed sympathy for the families of victims at the Monday night bombing in Manchester following an Ariana Grande concert.
“Like everyone else, my family and I were shocked to hear about the terrible news from Manchester. All that’s left to do is send heartfelt sympathy to the families of the victims and Ariana Grande," McCartney wrote. "Praying that something like this never happens again. Love to everyone."
