PAULS DRUMING ON"PRUDENCE"
Yikes....what's with the SHOUTING??? Try and turn the caps off, please....As for the "drums by Paul thing, actually, that's only partially correct. On page 151 it states "although the early takes reveal Pual as the drummer on the basic track, 2 more drum tracks were later overdubbed, while Paul was playing other intruments. Also, it states that both George and Paul played lead, with George playing "first lead guitar". You'd think that if it was Paul playing the solo, they would have pointed it out? Maybe it's on another page, but I couldn;t find it. I even checked the book "Revolution:making of...". According to this book, on the harmony, it's John falsetto and Macca bass--Lewisohn says it George and John. .Also, J, P & G all played bass parts on the song.
