The Beatles spanned quite a large career, with a huge amount of drama surrounding them. Although the band managed to get through to the end of their careers unscathed - more or less - they did suffer a number of arguments and disagreements. One of these arguments saw Paul McCartney and John Lennon falling out with Ringo Starr.
Starr found himself feeling a little under appreciated during 1968, prompting his departure from the band.
This halted the writing and recording of The White Album - arguably some of the band's best work.
With the band's latest album on hold, the fab four were struggling to work out what to do next with their careers, as Ringo was still AWOL, and the rest of the band were missing a drummer.
Thankfully, this schism in the band didn't last very long.
