John was drastically over-sensitive and was the first to admit it. From that same interview:
Part of me suspects that I'm a loser and the other part of me thinks I'm God Almighty.
The "God Almighty" part wanted a central role in George's autobiography. The "loser" part worried that he was left out because George didn't need him anymore-- he'd moved on, and why shouldn't he? Was John still an important force in the music-writing business-- did he still have his touch? Had he lost it for good? Because he has this album coming out and he's really nervous about it and now George has this expensive limited-edition book out and John is hardly mentioned and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!
Or at least, that's how I feel the thought process might have gone.
Yes, Penny Lane, you hit on one of the key things to me about George's book. It's not even a memoir; it's just a stream of consciousness. I always felt the wives were the ones who had a right to feel slighted, if anyone gets to call dibs (sorry, John). Their names will pop up, but there's no coherent history. Like, "Pattie was there--- you know, my wife at the time?" Nope, not even that. Just, "I remember Pattie was in the room, and Doug, and maybe some other people. And there was a jelly donut on the speaker." Then he'd print the lyrics. It's a very "George" book.
