George rejoins the Beatles

After abruptly quitting the band on January 10th, 1969, George got together with John, Paul and Ringo on January 15th to discuss the band's future.

At this stage Harrison and Lennon's interest in being Beatles was tepid at best, and George was demanding certain terms be met before he got back with the group. First and foremost, George wanted to scrap the idea of the band doing a live show in front of an audience; an idea hatched my McCartney. Another stipulation was that they moved the recording sessions out of the cold, dismal Twickenham Studios to the Beatles' new studio in the basement of Apple Headquarters, on Savile Row.

Nobody was happy with the direction the Let It Be sessions were going, so Harrison's demands were met with little resistance. All his terms were agreed upon and the band got back to finishing the album.

"It was decided that it would be better if we got back together and finished the record. Twickenham, Studios were very cold and not a very nice atmosphere, so we decided to abandon that and go to Savile Row into the recording studio." - George Harrison
