Mccartney's Hey Jude Row

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY almost scrapped THE BEATLE's hit HEY JUDE - because he and GEORGE HARRISON couldn't agree on the track's arrangement.
The legendary musician remembers how recording for the beloved anthem was thrown into chaos when he clashed with late bandmate Harrison over whose version of the song was better.
He says, "What started happening, I think, was that I'd started getting on George's nerves. One prime example was when we were doing Hey Jude.
"George started answering my vocals on his guitar. He was filling in all the gaps. Now, what do you say? 'Er, look, man, do you mind?'
"You've got to put it diplomatically. But you've got to say, 'I don't want that in the arrangement'. And certainly in that case, he took umbrage."
