Ironically a year to the day, on August 22, 1968, Ringo quit the Beatles briefly after walking out of the sessions while they were working on the "White Album".
"I remember Ringo being uptight about something, I don’t remember what, and the next thing I was told was that he’d quit the band. But work continued. They did Back In The USSR with what I seem to recall was a composite drum track of bits and pieces, possibly with all of the other three playing drums. Within a few days the differences had been sorted out and Ringo came back. Mal Evans completely decorated studio two with flowers, they were all over his drum kit, ‘Welcome Back Ringo' "

Ringo rejoined the sessions for the White Album on September 3, 1968 — ironically my 6th birthday!! :)
