Am I right that the only bonafide drum roll Ringo ever performed for a Beatles recording is the snare roll he does on "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite"…?

No idea what a bonafide drumroll is but there is one at the beginning of All You Need Is Love, Ringo overdubbing it in place of the original shaking tambourine the day after the live performance.

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

He also does rolls (dunno about "bonafide") leading into the bridges in "Nowhere Man". Those three tracks are the only examples I can think of.

I'm pretty sure George Martin's famous remark about Ringo wasn't meant literally – I can't imagine GM standing there above Ringo like a schoolmaster, demanding that he perform snare rolls at will.

Thanks -- both of those examples ("All You Need Is Love" and "Nowhere Man") are indeed bonafide examples, even if they are rather brief.  Ringo's strength was not in the technically amazing rolls of a Michael Shrieve

or a Danny Seraphine

There's no way he meant it literally, simply because one listen to a handful of Beatles songs shows it to be false!
Especially listening to a bunch of session/outtake bootlegs, which I've been doing these past few weeks…SUPERB drumming on so many songs.

Just noticed but not sure, in the Anthology version of Cry Baby Cry, an abrupt drum roll can be heard in my opinion.
