Wonderful. Very good Ringo impression. Was watching The Rutles the other day. Some of it's aged very badly (the Eric Idle narration is excruciatingly un-funny) but the songs and some of the sketches are still spot-on.
I've not seen the Rutles in decades though I can imagine remembered Idle lines like 'they were a legend in their own lunchtime,' which so tickled our pun-loving funny bones as teenagers, would seem very weak now.
At the time I think I even prefered some of the Rutles songs to the rather stuffy-seeming Beatles - like the delightful, heart-warming 'I Must Be In Luv' or whatever it was called (grabs coat and runs for cover.)
