Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

From what i've read it was down to business differences between the two camps involving Apple and EMI. Paul was receiving a higher royalties rate than the others who were peeved when they found out and so there was court action. An article from the time writes

The reason: longstanding business and legal problems involving the surviving Beatles and their former record company, Apple. It would have been the trio's first public appearance in America since the Beatles' 1966 concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

"I was keen to go to (the dinner) and pick up my award, but after 20 years the Beatles still have some business differences which I had hoped would have been settled by now," McCartney said in the statement. "Unfortunately, they haven't been (settled), so I would feel like a complete hypocrite waving and smiling with (Harrison and Starr) at a fake reunion."

 More can be read over at Steve Hoffman's thread.
