I listened to an interview with Jeff Lynne of ELO several years ago and he talked about his first starting out in the business and getting the opportunity of being in the studio when the Beatles where making the White Album. He said it wasn't really a Beatle album because all 4 were never in the studio at the same time. There was always one missing, sometimes two. And when they were all there there was fighting. Ringo and George, at different points, stormed out of the sessions only to have one of the others go to their home, smooth things over, and talk them to coming back. Lynne stated you could see the beginnings of the disharmony in the relationship in 1968.
