His father was a professional musician, and his mother was a homemaker. He has two older sisters. Laine was educated at Birmingham Central Technical College.

He began his musical career playing in various local bands in the early 1960s. In 1966, he joined the Moody Blues, with whom he recorded two albums. He left the band in 1968 to form Wings with Paul McCartney. The band achieved great success in the 1970s, releasing a string of hit singles and albums.

Laine remained with Wings until 1981, when the group disbanded. He has since pursued a solo career, releasing several albums. His net worth is estimated to be $10 million. ..
