Like that other mid 60s Beatles classic Rain, She Said She Said opens with an infectious fuzz riff played by George Harrison, probably on his Gibson SG.
Harrison also played bass on the song after Lennon and McCartney had a fall-out. The inspiration for the song stems from an encounter John had with the actor Peter Fonda in Los Angeles.
Hanging out with The Byrds, on some mind-altering substance, John freaked out when Fonda kept saying he knew what it was like to be dead. “Listen mate, shut up about that stuff!” Lennon growled. Still, he got a brilliant song out of it.
