EMI STUDIOS, LONDON, MARCH 29 1967

“A homburg-hatted John joins in on working out the arrangement of ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ for Ringo’s benefit. Lennon was presumably in a more coherent state than the previous week when he accidentally ingested some LSD during a session. George Martin, blissfully unaware of the drug’s powerful hallucinatory effects, had lead John up to the roof to get some air after he’d complained of feeling ill. On learning of this Paul and George both dashed upstairs to rescue him. Paul clutches an acetate of one of the Pepper tracks while George pulls up a chair to work with John on the guitar parts.” - From ‘Looking Through You’ and scanned by @thebeatlesforlife :)
