Pure speculation..."I buried Paul"
People would reverse your question...
Maybe John would have joined the Traveling Wilburys, making the group almost tolerable?
we would not have to listen to Paul's revisionist beatlology
This is a really funny turn of phrase
And you trust that John would have given you a "fairer" account? lol
In this scenario isn't George still alive? Also, you dont even find the Wilburys tolerable? To each his own.
I think the bigger question is, what if it was John and Paul surviving.
I am betting they would eventually have worked together again.
I can picture them recording an album with Klauss Vorman and Jim Keltner.
Yes, per the OP's question:
"What if Ringo and Paul were dead, what if George and John were the last Beatles?"
If I had added "In my opinion" to the original statement about the Wilburys it wouldn't have been as funny, and I was going for a quick joke. If I explain it out, it gets even less funny. I respect what they did, but there are very, very few of their songs that I personally like. IMO. IMO. IMO. IMO.
HA, HA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im sure John would have become more involved with politics and human rights movements. Also more collaborations with other mainstream and indie artists and I would expect his music to have taken a more progressive and heavier route.
I find this kind of melancholy...
I say! That older gentleman is very clean!
I'd be urging them to re-form.
I'd still feel that 1/2 of my favorite band was missing.
To this point (and I wholeheartedly agree with your entire post), I see John Paul Jones as a similar living example of this very thing.
Pas "Bingo", monsieur. "Banco."
Oh, I'll take the little darlin's anyway.
I'd love to see what John would've come up with in [these] times .
