Everyone is aware that John Reid saved the band from financial and artistic ruin when he got them out of their Trident deal, leaving them free to sign him up as their manager.
After two years they split from Reid to effectively manage themselves with the help of Jim Beach. At the time leaving Reid was reported as an amenable split, but reading through Brian's Queen In 3D book he states that there were problems with Reid so they decided to get out of the deal with Jim Beach's help. Prior to the book had anyone been aware of the split being the result of things not going well?
Yes. Roy had, at least once, subtly given hints that he (Roy) and Frederick liked JR a lot, but it wasn't necessarily the case for everyone else; Brian also spoke at least once about how he didn't like JR gravitating too much towards Fred; a few things were also mentioned here and there, and there's also the fact they'd signed with him for three years but somehow got out of the contract just about two and a half years into it (if that), which strongly suggests something serious might have happened for them not to be able to wait six months and spend a lot of money in the process.
In other words JR (don't know why his name is so untypable) wanted to bang whoever the fuck 'Frederick' is but had to get the band on board, but the band is a lot bigger than the sum of its parts. Same with Epstein and Lennon. The fact both 'JR' and Epstein fucked off in very different ways was the best thing that happened to both bands.
I'd always read the official line that they had moved on amicably at the end of their contract with Reid, and so I was also surprised to read this when I got my 3D book. They clearly had some respect for each other as there's never really been any 'tale telling' before from either side.
