I dont know. Its so pleasing to see the 3 together again below, even tho they all look relaxed, Ringo especially looks he's having the most fun but im sure that out of the three Ringo is the one who misses hanging out with them all together the most as he was closest to all the others. 

Its just impossible to watch and forget that John is missing and why. Maybe thats why i havent seen the Anthology in so long. (Yeah im procrastinating but its more fun watching the beatles on youtube than doing work.a-hard-days-night-paul-11)

For me it´s quite bittersweet watching clips from Anthology when they are together. I feel like John should be there too a-hard-days-night-john-4

I think George's biggest problem with the Anthology was he didn't want to do it without John there. I remember reading that at one point Paul wanted to play Let It Be, but George refused to do it without John, so they didn't. He was after all the one to say, "As far as I'm concerned, there won't be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead." While John was alive, he had said in the mid 70's that if the other three got together, he just hoped they'd invite him too.

Also, I think people exaggerate what was going on between George and Paul after The Beatles split. There's plenty of evidence to suggest they still loved each other dearly, but they were the Beatles with the most "brotherly" relationship, which is why they probably fought more (and obviously had clashing personalities).

As for George's bitterness…after reading transcripts from the tapes of the Get Back/Let It Be sessions and reading a lot about the relationship between George, John and Paul, I can't say I blame him. Those wounds were probably very deep and went beyond just the getting songs on an album issue. I'm sure being in that environment again and still being treated like the little brother brought back some unpleasant memories.

Well imo it didn't change in solo career. My ranking is paul-john-george-ringo solo and non solo. I only think george got better but not better than john (although IMO john hasn't got a solo album as good as all things must pass)

Yip the brother type of relationship has always worked for me as a way of describing their relationship. Didnt always get on and there were issues best kept away from but when it came down to it they were there for each other. Despite everything they both loved each other. There are certainly times in the Anthology where you can sense a tension but there are other times when they are having a laugh. Same goes for thru-out the 70's and 80's. George would get pissed off with Paul, usually feeling that Paul kept using a possible reunion to sell his latest album, and then the press would jump all over it reporting that they were either close to a fight or deliberately avoiding each. More often than not garbage.

Yeah, exactly. For instance, when George's mother had a tumor, Paul was the only one he told, even though they weren't on the best terms. He even said that the whole Paul/George feud the media was trying to create in the 80s was rubbish and that Paul and Linda came over for dinner many times.

The one i remember is that in the 80's George was at a some event, a film festival i think, and left and then the next day Paul arrived. The newspapers wrote it up that they couldnt bear to be around each other and George fled when he found out Paul was coming. Turned out George had to be elsewhere and didnt know Paul was arriving.
