I've seen that one. I don't think it's a wedding ring. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Does anyone know if there is an interview or something where George says the word "theory"? I think I would like to hear him say that word.

I can't think of one off the top of my head, but I love the question @Ahhh Girl. a-hard-days-night-george-9 Now that you mention it, I should very much like to hear him say it too.

I know George stated that he saw John 2 years before his death but how did George later take John's death?

While I don't have Lennonology with me to check if a later date has been found, there is no evidence that George saw John after the end of the Dark Horse tour in 1974. Following the final show at Madison Square Garden on 20 December 1974, John was present at George's hotel. This is a definite as John joined in towards the end of a radio interview with George (which is probably the last interview involving two Beatles while all four were alive).

Any contact between after that was by phone. The only Beatle John saw after 1976 was Ringo, who he last saw a few weeks before his death.

Whilst I realise you believe the "Paul Is Dead" myth, for the vast majority of us who don't, those recordings are purely more fake evidence with no proof of them being George.

I don't actually believe the myth, I just like to joke about it.  I was trying to be funny.  I'm sorry if it came off negatively, it wasn't intended that way.  And yeah the tapes are fake, George Harrison 's Last Testament is a mockumentary.

Apologies. I get confused over who is and isn't a PID-er. Had no problem with you saying it, just wanted those that might not be aware that those tapes are fake (IMO) as they are PID-ers who quote them as being among the strongest evidence.

As someone who enjoy's researching PiD, I hate the tapes on GHLT as evidence because they are so innacurate.  Rubber Soul and Revolver come put before Paul dies!

Paul has a way of overshadowing George, even in his own threads :P.

I'm going by the video George himself stated he had not seen John for 2 years. He said the last time he saw him was at John's house

Why isn't there any good pictures of George playing his Fender Strat pre-Rocky, all of them are from the back and why did he never play his Strat live. I know you guys might be thinking he didn't play it much, but according to http://www.beatlesebooks.com (a quality source that lists what types of guitars they used per song), it was his main guitar for Help ! through Magical Mystery Tour . It might make sense that he liked it so much that he didn't ever want to risk it getting damaged on tour, put here he is using it live:

Except for the small but very important fact that the guitar was acquired during the Rubber Soul sessions... ahdn_paul_01

I know George said he acquired it during the Rubber Soul sessions, but yet here's John with his during the Help ! sessions:
