Fact #168725


Short story:

With tempers fraying, The Beatles work on the song Cry Baby Cry at EMI's Abbey Road Studios, London, England, UK, Europe. During this session, their long-serving engineer Geoff Emerick walks out because of the heated arguments between Beatles' members. He does not return.

Paul McCartney : Because John had divorced Cynthia and gone off with Yoko, it meant that I'd hear some of the songs for the first time when he came to the studio, whereas in the past we checked them with each other.

Geoff Emerick (engineer) : I lost interest in the White Album because they were really arguing among themselves and swearing at each other. The expletives were really flying... I said to George [Martin], 'Look, I've had enough. I want to leave. I don't want to know any more.' George said, 'Well, leave at the end of the week' – I think it was a Monday or Tuesday – but I said, 'No, I want to leave now, this very minute.' And that was it.
