"I wasn't going to stay home and watch the television news. George Martin rang up to ask if I wanted to cancel the session, and I said, "No way, I've got to work through this day." We worked on a track called "Rain Clouds." Paddy [Maloney], the aeolianpipesman of the Chieftains, worked on that. He was the right sort of character to see that day, 'cause Paddy's like a leprechaun. It was nice to have a sort of magic person around. It was as if he was a sort of guru sent to help that day out."
-- McCartney, discussing his response to Lennon's murder
Isn't the correct term "Uilleann pipesman"? If so, McCartney would not be the first former Beatle to have trouble with the term "Aeolian" (unless it's the transcriber's mistake).
