Drumming practice

Photo taken the Abbey Road Sessions during the summer of 1969.


  1. UNBELIEVABLE. Thank you!!!!

    Tea towels on the snare and the high-tom, but not the other toms, interesting!

    Perhaps they're discussing "The End" drum solo!

    Fantastic. Those are the mighty drums of "Come Together", great. Thank you!

  2. Awesome! There's a picture of John & Paul together around a mic recording vocals (apparently taken by Yoko from her bed.) Paul appears to be wearing the same clothes. So possibly the same day? The consensus was that it was probably the Come Together session.


    1. Even better!!! Paul and Ringo working out that classic drum part?

      I believe "Come Together" to be the single greatest performance of The Beatles insomuch that each Beatle (plus George Martin & staff!) contributes 100% to the finished product, nothing any of them do can be separated from the track.

      And Ringo's drumming on that song! If that's what they're working on - and judging from where Ringo is on the drums, it looks like it very well could be! - then I'm blown away. Wow. Who would have thought!
