Ringo has claimed that he ‘didn’t have the talent’ to finish recording a song, so he would go to friend, and fellow Beatles member, George Harrison for help.
He reflected on his struggle to complete tracks in an interview with Rolling Stone radio on Thursday, when he made the surprising admission.
Ringo revealed: ‘I used to always go to George to help me end the song. I didn’t have the talent to end a song’.
‘I didn’t have the talent to end a song. With Back Off Boogaloo, I went to George and he helped me finish it.’
During his tenure in The Beatles, Ringo wrote two songs by himself: Don’t Pass Me By and Octopus’s Garden, the latter of which he asked George for help with, going on to talk about his more recent music, Ringo added: ‘I actually have one song that had like 40 verses, and I gave it to Harry Nilsson. He got it down to 11.’
