Very strange. Just yesterday I recorded a version of "Whatever" for grins and today that song is in the news (the BBC article on Neil mentioned that Noel Gallagher had to share writer's credit because he lifted a bit from an Innes song.)

I love the Rutles stuff, very well-written and very clever.

Ladies and gentleman, I've suffered for my music, now it's your turn.

Neil Innes brought the fun and silliness to our lives. Thank God.


See Ya Around Neil.

I'm a Neil fan and two days ago watched the BBC show from 2004 (for the 15th time) about Viv Stanshall and Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. Neil interviewed well and his stories were interesting and from a content perspective. Just the kind of guy you'd want to visit and raid his fridge

Until now I thought the world was going to hell in a handbag, but in remembering what I know about Neil Innes, have to concede the world is a better place because of him.
