"He is a very special person," McCullough's sister Rae Morrison told the BBC. "We really are very worried for him, his sister is on her way home from Florida and his brother is coming home from Glasgow."

McCullough is one of the world's best-known guitarists. He has worked with Wings, George Harrison and Joe Cocker, with whom he performed with at the original Woodstock festival in 1969.
