Beatles members: Why George Harrison threatened to quit

In 1970, John told Rolling Stone about how the band had treated Yoko, including George.

He said: “You can quote Paul, it’s probably in the papers, he said it many times at first he hated Yoko and then he got to like her. But it’s too late for me. I’m for Yoko.

“And George, s***, insulted her right to her face in the Apple [Records, the label the band founded] office at the beginning, just being ‘straight forward’ you know, that game of ‘well, I’m going to be upfront because this is what we’ve heard and Dylan and a few people said she’s got a lousy name in New York, and you gave off bad vibes.’

“That’s what George said to her and we both sat through it, and I didn’t hit him. I don’t know why.”
