Musicians
    (1975-1978)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Dirk McQuickly (aka Eric Idle; March 29, 1943- ), bass and vocals
    Ron Nasty (aka Neil Innes; December 9, 1944- ), guitar and vocals
    Stig O'Hara (aka Ricky Fataar; September 5, 1952- ), guitar and vocals
    Barry Wom (aka John Halsey; February 23, 1945- ), drums
    Reunited (without Dirk) in 1996-97 and 2002
    Appeared in 'Rutland Weekend Television' (1975-76), the TV movie 'All You Need Is Cash' (1978) and the direct-to-video sequel 'Rutles 2: Can't Buy Me Lunch' (2002)
    Recorded the albums 'The Rutles' (1978) and 'Archeology' (1996)
    Songs included 'I Must Be in Love,' 'Ouch!,' 'Doubleback Alley,' 'Piggy in the Middle' and 'Get Up and Go'
    Known as 'the Pre-Fab Four' and 'the legend that will last a lunchtime'
    The career of a band called The Beatles parallelled theirs in many ways
    Idle did not actually appear on any of their songs, with musician/singer Ollie Halsall subbing for him.
    The drummer portrayed by Halsey was known at different points as 'Kevin' and 'Barry.'
    When NBC showed 'All You Need Is Cash,' it finished dead last among all programs for the week.
    Like Spinal Tap, they are a fake band that decided to hold real reunions.
    'All You Need Is Cash' inspired 'This Is Spinal Tap.'
    George Harrison had a cameo in 'All You Need Is Cash' as a reporter.
    Their Beatles pastiches were so convincing that one, 'Cheese and Onions,' has appeared on Beatle bootlegs.
