I don't know his whole career as well as I would like but "All you need is Cash" is a masterpiece. Thanks for the laughs Neil.

Very sad news. Ron Nasty will be greatly missed.

That first Rutles album was genius! Yup, a masterpiece!

It's from the Bonzos that I remember Neil best. Here he is on one of their classics.

"The Intro And The Outro" was the B-side of a 45 I bought in 1968. May he rest in peace.

I love the Rutles. Those songs stand up pretty well away from the film.
