Ringo Starr didn't have hands-on Beatles bonding


Ringo Starr insists he was never involved in group masturbation sessions with The Beatles.

The 78-year-old drummer's bandmate, Sir Paul McCartney, recently spoke of the unique bonding experiences he used to have with the rest of the group - which also featured the late John Lennon and George Harrison - but the 'Goodnight Vienna' hitmaker claims they took place before he joined the group.

Asked if he was involved in the sessions, he said: "That was before I joined."

And Ringo wasn't too upset not to have been involved with the bizarre experience.

When TMZ asked if he felt he had missed out, he and his wife Barbara Bach simply burst into laughter.

Paul previously confessed to masturbating with his bandmates early in their career.

He shared: "What it was ... was over at John's house, and it was just a group of us. And instead of just getting roaring drunk and partying - I don't even know if we were staying over or anything - we were all just in these chairs, and the lights were out, and somebody started masturbating, so we all did."

However, it soon came to an abrupt halt after John yelled out 'Winston Churchill' in the middle of the session.

He added: "I think John sort of said, 'Winston Churchill!'"

And of the sessions, he added: "It was maybe a two-off. It was just the kind of thing you didn't think much of. It was just a group. Yeah, it's quite raunchy when you think about it. There's so many things like that from when you're a kid that you look back on and you're, 'Did we do that?' But it was good harmless fun. It didn't hurt anyone. Not even Brigitte Bardot."
