On Being For The Benefit of Mr Kite, there are 4 harmonicas being played, by:
George
Ringo
Neil Aspinall
Mal Evans

It's true, I don't think Paul's ever played harmonica on record. In some of the later Wings sessions, drummer Joe English played harmonica!

I remember a story about Delbert McClinton teaching John how to play harmonica in the early '60s. I guess after that the Beatles had their harmonica player, so there wasn't any need for Macca to play it. [;)] (But I'm sure he could if he wanted to. [:)] )

A name like that can only come from Texas! He's from Lubbuck, Texas. (Same town Buddy Holly was from)

He's kind of a blues/country/soul singer. He played harmonica on a lot of records around 1960. (Most nobably a song called "Hey Baby" by Bruce Channel) He was on tour in England back in the early '60s, and that's when he gave Lennon harmonica lessons.

He had a solo hit in the U.S. back in the early '80s called "Giving It Up For Your Love." He still plays a lot of bars and stuff.
