i never would have guessed it. even after being clued-in, i can't say i can distinguish it, though it must be in there giving body to the general murk. (course i love the saxes on Good Morning, Lady Madonna and even the purposely overcooked section on Savoy Shuffle.)

Such information should be noted in the Beatles Anthology book. I can't recall reading this, but it has been a long time since I read it.

I enjoy Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones' tenor sax performance on The Beatles' novelty song "You Know My Name." Likewise, I had never heard about John Lennon on tenor on Helter Skelter. I'm going to relisten.

What is the source of this claim?

FWIW...Wiki lists John Lennon as having played "sound effects" on a saxophone mouthpiece...

(among others; i don't see nothing about "mouthpiece sound effects" on latter. though that would make sense. i just saw someplace where he sent Mal out to pick up a couple of horns.)
Thanks. That wiki article seems quite thin - all second hand “knowledge” without citation.

I just found this as well: https://www.udiscovermusic.com/artists/ringo-starr/
