Rutles members, others sound off

Quotable remarks on band's '30 glorious years'

WHAT THEY SAY:

“30 glorious years… another day, another dollar.”
Ron Nasty, The Rutles

“I am thrilled as I am saving up to buy a new wife.”
Sir Dirk McQuickly, The Rutles

“30 years? 30 years since what?”Barry Wom, The Rutles

“…”
Stig O’Hara, The Rutles (the quiet one)

OTHERS SAY:

“This is the sort of thing that gives exploitation a bad name.”
Raymond Scum, folk legend

“The music of the Rutles always had that kiss-of-sunshine, upbeat, swingy, positive vibe to it. That always irritated me. Liked the clothes though. And Stig’s hair.”
David St. Hubbins, Spinal tap

“They had no effect on me or my brother Yosh. Or the general public. Blow up a balloon and then let it go. That is to aviation what the Rutles is to music.”
Stan Shmenge, polka legend
