Ringo Starr’s replacement gave Paul McCartney the idea for a song from The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Paul said he wrote the Sgt. Pepper song on his “magic” piano. In addition, John Lennon said the tune was inspired by his horrible actions.

Ringo Starr’s replacement said a phrase that was added to a ‘Sgt. Pepper’ song

According to the 1997 book Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now, Jimmie Nicol was a drummer who replaced Ringo for five days when The Beatles toured Australia and Denmark in 1964. Ringo was ill at the time. Nicol regularly used the phrase “It’s getting better,” which inspired The Beatles’ “Getting Better” from Sgt. Pepper.
