All You Need is... The Rutles Set, 1976

About the image
In one of my lifetimes, I played the Bigamy Sisters in Eric Idle’s spoof on  called “The Rutles.” It was made by Lorne Michaels for NBC and is now a cult classic with subtitled such as “All You Need is Cash.” I took this photo of the set when everyone had left except one of the engineer’s sons, who wanted to have a bash on the drums. Eric cast George Harrison in it, as a tv presenter, interviewing Michael Palin, on the demise of Apple Corp. It was a joke within a joke. We had a lot of fun.
