Personnel

I found this on the Wikipedia page of the Plastic Ono Band album. Was just curious to what "wind" and "tea and sympathy" means?

As best I can recall, in John's explanation, "wind" means simply Yoko's presence in the studio. "Tea" is to be taken literally, I assume. And "sympathy" is...who knows, moral support or some such?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

Mal was the odd job man, ask for anything and he'd either have it already or get it. Making the tea would have been one of the many functions Mal would have been incredibly happily doing and sympathy as he was always there, friendly, a great lestening ear, and made some damn good suggestions for the music. One of the few people who really deserves to be included in the Beatles and solo storymal-evans

Yes, Mal was one of the greats of the Beatles' inner circle.

He is definitely my favorite member of 'the crew'. mal-evans

For those of you who don't know, I was set to name my dog Malcom. When we adopted a female dog instead, I named her Lily after Mal's wife.
