Neil Innes- of Bonzos, Rutles and himself
There's been a flurry of activity around Neil Innes lately and music nuts everywhere can count that as a good thing. Along with a strange Rutles tribute revue that made the rounds in New York and L.A. (which expert scribe Jesse Jarnow guesses might have been a test run to follow Spamalot's theatrical run), there was also a Bonzo Dog Band reunion that just occurred yesterday in the UK (which we're sorry we missed).
But fear not though. The Bonzos, sadly minus the late Vivian Stanshall, also regrouped in 2006 and recorded it for posterity on DVD.
If that wasn't enough, you lucky folks in L.A. will get a chance not only to see Mr. Innes perform at the end of this month but there's also screenings of the '06 Bonzo reunion and a documentary about Innes happening then too. Details about all the fun are at the Frozen pictures blog.
