    Hi Simon

    Thanks for starting this thread. The movie "The Rutles" -- the Beatles spoof devised by Monty Python's Eric Idle, who played one of the Rutles -- didn't as far as I know feature any Scousers in lead roles (correct me if I am wrong, someone). However, Liverpool poet and Scaffold member Roger McGough is featured in a cameo appearance speaking on the fame of the Rutles with the Liver Buildings behind, as is the late great Beatle, George Harrison.

    All my best

    Chris

    Hi john

    That has to be the ultimate -- a tribute band to a parody band. Gear!
