During the recording of “The Dark Side Of The Moon“, the guys from Pink Floyd wrote on little papers questions like “Are you afraid of death?” and gave them to everyboy that was working at Abbey Road studio at the time. This included all the roadies, sound technicians, the Irish doorman, and even Paul McCartney who was recording on the same studio. The answers to the questions were recorded, and the best ones were put on the disc. However, Paul’s answers weren’t put on the disc because “he tried to be funny”.
Ummagumma (a Pink Floyd cd) is (british) slang for sex.
