Paul doesn’tplay the drums on Hang. This is because of a series of events-One morning hewoke up with a mild/almost strong headache and happened to notice thathe couldn’t see out of one eye. He went to consult a doctor about whatwas going on and it happened that he had suffered a minor stroke. Thiscaused him to miss the practice or rehearsal or SOMETHING like that forthe song, Hang (i think it was when they had recorded it in the studio)and so he doesn’t even bother to play it for fear of messing up on thebeat.~~{thanks for this fact from Jess!}~~
