Record producer and songwriter NEIL INNES

Record producer and songwriter NEIL INNES (IN-ess). He is a founding member of the comedy-rock group "The Bonzo Dog Band." He's also a member of "The Rutles," the band which he and Eric Idle of Monty Python, created as a spoof of the Beatles. INNES is also considered the "seventh Python" player because he provided and performed comedy music for the Monty Python troupe. The Rutles first came to the attention of the public in 1978 when their spoof documentary "All You Need is Cash" aired. Many of the original stars of Saturday Night Live appeared in the film. The film has just been released on DVD.
