Cheese and Onions: RIP Neil Innes

I’m so sorry to hear that Neil Innes has died. Once you’d heard Canyons Of Your Mind by the Bonzos, you’d never forget it. As for the songs he wrote for The Rutles, they are so like the Beatles songs they parody that I’ve found one segueing into another in my head until I hardly know which is which. What a brilliant man.
