I think the Beatles had been managed and had decisions taken out of their hands for so long that they just weren't having it any more. I do think Brian had less sway over the Beatles. The Emerick book talks about the live TV gig Brian got them (the one where they did All You Need Is Love) and how they (particularly John) were really displeased that he had booked it without consulting them, and none of them wanted to do it initially. It looked like there was a ton of tension over it, and it just seemed like the Beatles were feeling their power and increasingly both Brian AND George Martin were losing their hold or control over them. The Emerick book talks about one particularly nasty fight Paul had with George Martin, during the White Album. It made an impression on me, anyway..
