Vivian Stanshall

I wonder if  John and Viv were  mates ? they were of a similar age, Viv just 2 or
3 years younger than John.    I think the Beatles loved the zany humour of the
Bonzos  and of course  Viv  almost stole the show in  Magical Mystery Tour.

 I wonder if John saw a lot of himself in Viv,    Viv was very eccentric,
very imaginative,  a writer,  an illustrator.....

I agree, they do seem like 2 of a kind.  I know Neil Innes and Larry (Smith?) were friends with George Harrison.  So much zaniness!

 Was nt   George was a big mate of Eric Idle too  ?
I think they were all into  the goons,  the bonzos, monty python type humour
right from the getgo.
