  1. It’s definitely 100% Lennon on bass helter skelter without a shadow of a doubt.

    Another debate is who plays on oh darling. Always thought it was Paul but saw somewhere it was George. I still think Paul but who knows

    The isolated tracks make my head spin more than they confirm things for me lol
     
  4. Mark Lewisohn says Paul was on bass for "Oh! Darling", but the 2019 50th Anniversary book says it was George. It's a very Paul bass line, so if George played it on the recording, I would bet Paul showed him what to play.

  5. .... or over dubbed it, as he often did. It makes one wonder why he didn't for "The Long and Winding Road,."
     
  6. Are you insinuating the black Explorer with the gothic knobs wasn't his? But the seller said... :roflmao:
