The Rutles
« on: December 30, 2004, 10:26:59 AM »

Being a rabid Beatlemaniac, is it wrong that I should find a particular degree of liking to the Rutles' music?  :-/

The Rutles are/were a very respectful (and accurate!) parody by Eric Idle (Dirk McQuickly) with brilliant songs penned by Neil Innes. Innes (Ron Nasty) was a sometime member of the Monthy Python team who later teamed up with Idle on his comedy series called Rutland Weekend Television, of which The Rutles were a spin-off.

The Rutles have a GREAT deal of respect among Beatle fans, and there was of course a seal of approval from an actual Beatle - George Harrison made a cameo appearance as the TV interviewer outside Rutle Corps!

There is a sequel coming out sometime in March 2005 apparently!
