It's not easy to answer. Even after John died George and Paul were still at loggerheads over business deals and I'm sure John would have got involved (and would have sided with George).

My theory is any re-union thing would have centred on Yoko. Until John's death she was still anti-Beatles and it was only after the massive show of emotion from us all over his death that she realised how much it all meant to fans and changed her attitude, thus allowing us all the hear so much that we'd not heard before. We do know he was planning on coming home so that might have opened up a new thing.

So would John still be with Yoko today? I think he would have. Would they all still be friends? Yes I think they would have......eventually. Would we have seen another Beatles record? Nope.  George wouldn't have wanted it.

Why do you say George wouldn't have wanted it?

George was the one who didn't want to revisit the past. Yes he did Anthology, but even when they did Free As A Bird & Real Love we read that it was not all harmonious between him and Paul.
