Tempers were often fraught during the process of The Beatles recording their eleventh studio album Abbey Road, and one track, in particular, brought guitarist George Harrison to the end of his tether.

It was a difficult time for the band, and through no fault of their own, they were left to record a chunk of the record as a three-piece.
