Biography

Masterminded by legendary English comedians Eric Idle (of Monty Python) and Neil Innes, the Rutles' All You Need is Cash was a fab parody of the world's greatest rock band, the music business, and modern history. While the 1978 film is a hilarious must-see, Innes' songs stand up on their own, incorporating quotes and bits from Beatles songs as they buzz around every phase of their career. Top-shelvers include "I am the Waitress" and "Ouch!" but each tune is off-the-charts brilliant. George Harrison gave his blessing to the project, once again displaying his disgust for the music biz and the self-congratulatory rhetoric of rock stars and ex-hippies. In 1996, Innes penned a new batch of supremely sophisticated Rutles tunes for Archeology, which came out in time to take on the Anthology series. "All You Need is Cash" -- indeed.
