    @Patsy Faye , I voraciously read Sci fi as a boy and young man and I definitely read the story, but can't remember it. Anthony Burgess makes fun of a pop group that are probably the Beatles in the Enderby trilogy.

    The Silly Beatles

    There are probably thousands, if not millions, of Beatles covers in existence, many from some very well known folks (William Shatner singing Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds being a not-so-good example).

    And one popular trend is to make your own compilation and throw it up on the net. Here is one such aberation, The Silly Beatles.

    Check out the track listing below and run and download this thing while it is still available because it may be gone before you know it.

    No, @Harry Kemp , but after looking online, found The Rutles.

    The Rutles
    "One show introduced The Rutles, a four-piece band fronted by Innes as a man "suffering from love song" spoofing The Beatles, singing "I Must Be In Love", a pastiche of some of the early Lennon-McCartney songs. This was followed by the beginnings of a documentary feature about the band, cut short when the camera, mounted on a car, speeds off. This scene was later remade in the spinoff film, All You Need Is Cash, featuring Idle, Innes, Ricky Fataar and John Halsey (who also appeared in many of the musical items in the series) as the "Pre-Fab Four". Innes wrote the music for the film, most of which was parody of well-known Beatles songs.

    "On RWTV, "The Rutles" are portrayed by: Eric Idle as the Harrison character, Neil Innes as the Lennon character, David Battley as the McCartney character, and John Halsey as the Ringo character. They are introduced as: "Dirk" (Idle), "Nasty" (Innes), "Stig" (Battley), & "Barry" (Halsey). ("Barry" is inexplicably changed to "Kevin" on the RWTV soundtrack album.) The original version of "I Must Be In Love", is performed by Neil Innes & Fatso, and is slightly different than the 1978 All You Need Is Cash version. Also of note, on RWTV, "The Rutles" are quite clearly a product of Rutland, whereas in All You Need Is Cash, they are relocated to Liverpool.

    "Innes would later appear in another sketch, as "Ron Lennon", performing a short song titled, "The Children of Rock-N-Roll". This 30 second piece would later be expanded into a full Rutles song, "Good Times Roll", for the All You Need Is Cash film and album".

    I really like most of what the. Pythons produced and the spin offs. What I liked about Innes was that his songs were funny and melodic

    "Supposedly, they were gassed while in the van, and their bodies dumped into the ocean, and they were then "replaced" by trained agents back in England."

    But, why? Purpose? Wonder who that old codger still appearing publicly, born same year as I, carrying the name Paul McCartney, really is then??
