    Maybe John would have joined the Traveling Wilburys, making the group almost tolerable?

    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.

    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'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.
