On the other hand, why should George "all of a sudden" be cross about a 1969 issue just then? As I said, there would have been plenty of time to get that sorted out before, when John was still alive.
The Paul shares thing happened in 1966.
George , Paul and Ringo almost had this sorted out in 1973 or 74 but at the last minute John declined because the stars were not right. He was with Yoko in a hotel across the road. I believe they were in either Los Angeles or New York. When George found out he got very upset and wanted to kick John's ass.
I don't care what anyone says, Yoko got in the way of those guys and John just couldn't see it.
I think he was with May in the hotel, and with Yoko on the phone. And she was with the tarot reader.
