It is true he started complaining around 69, but that was the dark times when all of them made lots of mistakes. Times of Troubles, as Paul said in the song Let it Be. But he knew very well he could not complain. He presented only one song for Sgt Pepper's. There is only one there not because they didn't accept his song, but because he simply didn't gave any!
So he let lots of songs with no place to record. Lie! He could release solo albums without leaving the Beatles. Just see their History to see all of them were free. Paul also composed for a movie and released the songs in the soundtrack album as George did. John created his Plastic Ono Band.
George loved to be a Beatle. He was a close friend to all of them. i know because there are so many signals including in things he said later, and also in his videos! We can see him wearing the famous collarless suit. Wearing the Sgt Pepper's uniform...He wrote Fab! And he was the one responsible for the show Love by the Cirque de Soleil. His idea. Did he ask for his solo music in the show? No. Only the Beatles songs. He decided to be close to the Monty Python because, according to him, the Beatle Spirit had landed there. He had to be where the Bestles Spirit was.
Fans also ignore the lots of times George was a pain in the ass, arrogant, and even rude to the others, mainly Paul. I don't mind. I love him anyway, as i love all of them. But why to accuse Paul and John all the time and never see how terrible George could be? No, he was never a victim. And this image of victim is awful as describe him a very stupid man, something he was not. It is disrespect to him.
Now, to say it is songs like No Guilty contributed to the break up of the Beatles is simply a crime. It never challenged the works of paul and John because they were all Beatles in the same band. It was good for the band. john said loud and clear Something was the best song in Abbey Road. What happened when George became such an amazing songwriter was the opposite. That was when they decided he should have four songs in each album! That is what happened. That is the truth. But George's don't like the truth. They invent ugly stories...that disrespect George!
So why was this song not included? Same way Mayb Im Amazed was not included, Gimme some Truth was not included and so on...The Beatles broke up...man. Have you heard about it? Lots of songs by all of them were only recorded much later in their solo careers.
By the way...102 takes for this song. And Paul was the perfectionist? Come on.
