Weinberg: You played on Beatles' tracks?

Purdie: Twenty-one of them.

Weinberg: Do you remember which ones?

Purdie: Ummhmm.

Weinberg: Which ones?

Purdie: That's information I don't disclose.

Weinberg: Why won't you name the tracks?

Purdie: Because if I need that information to get me some money, then I'll have what's necessary. I also played on songs by the Animals, the Monkees.

Weinberg: Everyone knows the Monkees were a fabricated band, but The Beatles?

Purdie: Ringo never played on anything.

Weinberg: Ringo never played on anything?

Purdie: Not the early Beatles stuff.

Uh I don't remember when or where I played. I can't place who I played with or what time it was. I only remember I was jiving around on my drums but I can't remember any of faces of the guys I played with you know.I don't even remember the name of any of the songs I played on. I am so full of jive you know. I don't recall if it was rock and roll or jazz man.I think I monkeyed around with some Monkeys at one time .

If Bernard Purdie did play on the early Beatles records he did an excellent job!

Does anyone know if Bernard Purdie helped write songs for the Beatles. I read somewhere that he wrote Helter Skelter. It makes sense because it's not the type of song Paul would usually write.
