George & Paul's relationship after The Beatles

<< < (5/9) > >>

Marvin:
In Anthology Paul admits that he alway talked down to George. He said "I knew George when we used to get the same bus to school as kids. We would sit next to each other and being the older Kid I used to talk down to him like you do when you are are young.It was probably a failing of mine talking down to George because I'd always known him as the youger kid." (not word perfect but you get the gist)
next scene George joked

"Paul was always 9 month older than I. Even now he is still 9 months older than I"

The Beatles -interview with John Paul and George.



Thank you, Marvin.

Paul and George attended the Liverpool Institute for Boys and met while they were there.  Paul's report card indicates that he did well in math but somehow he thought that nine months was a year and a half.  :)

I love George's dry wit.  I miss him.

The issues between George & Paul’s are still a mystery to the fans, even though the media people states many reasons. It is a known fact that Paul is very hard to work with which is stated by most of his co-workers. That is what the Media tell as the major reason.

Some years ago I read an article relating to this where George said he was just fed up with his backseat position in the Beatles. John and Paul were openly critical of his music and playing while he kept his mouth shut(basically) about theirs. I think(my opinion) that when they got back from India George became more opinionated and the change upset the balance and caused a rift. I think some good examples of this was his critical view of how Hey Jude should be played, openly disliking Obaldi-Oblada which he included lyrics to that effect in Savoy Truffle, Not Guilty, which makes me think the difficulties started over India. Even WMGGW evokes his feelings about the situation over his playing. Into 69 he had more arguments and dissatisfaction to the point of leaving during Let It Be. I, Me Mine is a good example of his overview of Apple, Old Brown Shoe is probably a self descripted title of how he saw himself in the Beatles. My guess is Here Comes The Sun is a bit of relief as I'm sure he felt the End was near.
If you look at the photo's for 68's mad day out there are only a couple of them where George is smiling. The April69 shoot he is totally unhappy and the August69 photo shoot at Titenhearst he is totally disengaged.
All in all it probably became ridiculous for him to imagine that arguably the 3rd greatest rock star in the world could barely get a song recorded !

At one stage in the Pete Best era George was singing as many if not more cover songs at their gigs, so for a time he was equal with the others.
When J & P started their writing partnership they apparently deeply considered having George in as well but they decided against it, its a great pity it wasn't a 3 way thing - Lennon/McCartney/Harrison

all those get togethers of John & Paul at Kenwood etc, George must've felt like he'd had his nose pushed out. But he persevered and started to write songs on his own...good songs too

They shouldve included him.
