All four band members were perfect for each other, all thier techniques were complimentary to each other while being completely amazing individually. Without any one of them they wouldn't have been The Beatles. George's lead was amazing and not too flashy, fitting perfectly with the others. His songwriting while even great in the beginning, was amazing towards the breakup of the band, I can't imagine Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and Here Comes The Sun not existing. The Beatles without George would not have been the same, would not have been the Beatles.

They would have been the fab 3. A poorer band without George's contributions. The guy was phenomenal, I've always said that

George was instrumental in getting Ringo in so it would have been the fabulous Nerk Twins.

Difficult to give a definitive answer here but I feel that the whole Beatles sound that we know and love would never have been. George's guitar work is subtle and his genius lies in how simplistic his work sounds when it is actually quite technical; there was always something damn inventive happening on his fretboard......a-hard-days-night-george-10Oh....and in Something, WMGGW and I Want To Tell You, he, in my opinion, wrote some of the greatest ever Beatle tracks. john-lennon-salute_gif

Also George's backup vocals in all the many 3-part harmonies over the years.

I posted my initial answer 4 years ago. To expand upon that...

If George had tired of taking a backseat to J&P earlier than he did, the band could quite easily have gone through a parade of lead guitarists. Then, if he had the guts to leave, would Ringo have been far behind? 

These "what if" scenarios both fascinate and make me shudder at the same time. ahdn_paul_02
