I don't their break up would have been as soon or filled with acrimony and lawsuits if either Brian had lived or if they would have replaced him with a suitable manager.

True!

Well, I think George's issues at the time of the breakup would have been the same (as annoyed as he was about the lawsuit, I don't think that was what he was really mad about). On the other hand, without the lawsuit, he would never have thrown a brick through Paul's window.

But if Brian had lived, that would have made a real difference with John and Paul. As I understand it, by the 70's, they were largely able to work out their personal differences, but business was the sticking point. They probably would have worked things out a lot sooner, and never gotten so mad in the first place, if they hadn't fought over business. The issue of manager became a focus for personal issues, because it became "Paul's girlfriend's relative vs. someone impartial." So if George and John were fed up with Paul's seemingly taking over the band, they could point to concrete evidence that he was doing so. If John was jealous of Linda, well, here was some evidence that Linda was a bad influence.

Um...it was John who threw the brick through Paul's window. Or are you saying that and I just misunderstood?

*is confused*

And I'm pretty sure it was long before the lawsuit, anyway. IF the story is true, that is, heh. The pics of him climbing Paul's fence are pre-lawsuit, anyway.

IIRC, John took George and Ringo along and they threw the brick with him. (Which kind of makes sense for George, but seems very unlike Ringo.)

I hadn't heard that George & Ringo were along for the ride. Only John shows up in those pics at Paul's gate. Out of curiosity, where did you hear/read otherwise?
