Profile Bio Text
Jo Jo Laine (July 13, 1952—October 29, 2006) was an American singer, model, actress, groupie, and the former wife of Denny Laine of The Moody Blues and Wings.
Born Joanne Patri , Jo Jo Laine used the name Joanna Hines during the early years of her marriage to Denny Laine, whose birth name is Brian Hines. She later performed with her own band, called Jo Jo Laine & The Firm, until 1985 when Jimmy Page established The Firm. She has also recorded with Wings and Sting and Andy Summers of The Police, performing on "Hulk" and "Dancing Man".
In 1986 Laine contacted Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Miller via Carol Price, whose husband, Jim Price, toured with the Rolling Stones in the early seventies. Miller and Laine arranged to meet in Boston at the nightclub Avalon. At that time Laine managed a band called The Mannish Boys. When the Mannish Boys project imploded, Miller and Laine teamed up to produce their version of the Gerry Goffin and Carole King classic "I`m Into Something Good". The record was released on Boston Rock & Roll Anthology Volume 10. Part of the recording was done as a class at the Berklee College of Music though the basic tracks were recorded at the legendary Normandy Sound in Warren, Rhode Island.
Jo Jo Laine died at a London Hospital at the age of 54, following a fall at her home. She had been fighting liver cancer since May 2006.
The album The Best Of Jo Jo Laine had been scheduled for release in 2006.

Jo Jo Laine (born Joanne LaPatrie, Danvers, Massachusetts, July 13, 1952— London, October 29, 2006) was an American singer, model and actress who married Moody Blues founder Denny Laine while he was a member of Paul McCartney's group Wings. Originally a groupie who had affairs with Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and many other artists, she had a lengthy relationship with Rod Stewart just before her meeting Laine. Stewart is said to have written the hit song "You Wear It Well" for her and in the foreword to her autobiography (as yet unpublished) wrote "You wore it well then, Jo Jo, and you wear it well now." Ginger Baker wrote the last page of her book saying - very affectionately - "No sane man would go near her."
