@Bill from November Sound  - apparantly. I was reading The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry and from it understood there is a lot of material still to be discovered - mostly early cooperations with Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie and Rowan Atkinson.
recommending https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_Music_Works "How music works", book by David Byrne.

I'm afraid that Neil Innes has died.
Singer/guitarist of/Writer for
the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band
the Pytons
Grimms
the Rutles
and many solo adventures after that.

Understanding the British sense of absurdism and humor (I think ) is impossible without understanding the Bonzo's and the Rutles. And Monty Python of course.

Sung live against their own backing:



I will remember Neil.
Kind regards, Gus

Edit:
I'll remember George too.
But Neil more.
