Any truth to the rumor that it's not Ringo playing the drum solo in "The End"? That's what I'd always heard. (and that it was Paul)

I haven't heard that either; I always thought it sounded very Ringo-ish. I know Paul played drums on a number of other songs, particularly on the White Album.
Maybe I am thinking of something on the White Album. The "literature" certainly says that it was Ringo.

yeah, didn't he supposedly "walk out" for a week during the White Album sessions? My memory is a bit hazy but I think I heard that somewhere.

3/11/16 - Friday!  It's a tribute to Sir George Martin

1. The Beatles - In My Life
2. Jeff Beck - Cause We've Ended As Lovers
    (George Martin:  "there was a time when I got fed up with being the Beatles' producer ... [eventually] I realized it was something to be proud of")
3. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (reprise) / A Day In the Life
    (studio chatter for the Sgt. Pepper's side B run-out groove of the initial British pressing)
4. Paul McCartney - No More Lonely Nights
5. America - Sister Golden Hair
6. The Beatles - Yellow Submarine
    (George Martin on using the mellotron)
7. The Beatles - Strawberry Fields
8. The Beatles - Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds
    (George Martin, Paul McCartney, and a little bit of John Lennon commenting on how the sound of Tomorrow Never Knows was created)
9. The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows
    (George Martin on the art of record producing)
10.The Beatles - Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight / The End

No. 4 appears to be a bust-out.

Edit:  correct typo in bust-out list

Yep. McCartney played drums on Dear Prudence, and the drum track on Back in the USSR was a collaboration of the other three members.
Let's get right to it.

Typo, I'm assuming: it's #4 (the McCartney) that's a bustout; the America was played 8 times by Morey alone.
