Bio from http://www.wailers.com/

Earl "Wya" Lindo began his career with the Wailers in 1972. While attending Excelsior High School in Jamaica "Wya" played organ in the band Now Generation. Aston "Familyman" Barrett heard "Wya" and recommended him to play for a Saturday afternoon television program called "Where It's At" on JBC. On the show he played with Tommy McCook, saxophone player for the Skatalites, and Upsetters/Hippie Boys guitar player Alva Lewis. He also spent his early days working at Coxsone Dodd's Studio One, Jamaica's most prolific recording label, where he played on ainnumerable recordings with every star Jamaica has to offer. In 1972 he was invited to join the Wailers where he has stayed ever since.

While on tour with Taj Mahal during the mid-70s Lindo unknowingly took bad acid (LSD) which caused serious psychiatric problems.

Today Earl Lindo lives with his wife Cleopatra Rosemary and two daughters Kyan and Kaleigh in London, England.
