In the Yesterday (2019) movie, we see near the end, couple other people who knew that the Beatles band existed, shared the address of John Lenon to Jack, after which the latter confronts him.

How is this possible? Is this an alternate timeline where all these four famous artists of the band survive and live ordinary lives without any musical contribution? Because in the normal timeline (John's musical life), he would be assassinated in 1980. Do the others (Paul, Ringo and George) also live in this timeline as John the same way without any contribution?

    Quite simply there is no way to know but it seems likely that the other Beatles also made no contribution. – Paulie_D Jul 15 at 8:11

You've described the premise of the movie: This is an alternate timeline where John, Paul, Ringo and George did not create a successful band and write songs. However, within the movie at least 3 people remember the original timeline (in which The Beatles wrote the songs, and John was later killed).

    Maybe it's trivial but maybe still worth to mention that in real life John's fame contributed to his death. He was assassinated not by a random murderer, but by a man who was obsessed with the Beatles and John. So assuming, the assassination didn't happen if John wouldn't have been famous is quite plausible. – Arsak Jul 29 at 8:42
