The day Sir Horace Gentleman of The Specials met Ron Nasty of The Rutles
Some know him as "The Urban Spaceman", some know him as "The 7th Python" and to others he will always "Ron Nasty of The Rutles". In my opinion The Bonzo Dog Band are up there with the greats so I was absolutely delighted to hang out with ex Bonzo Neil Innes yesterday. Neil came to Julian Wakeling Studios in South London to record the vocals for "Flying Down To Rio" a song written by Mike Nesmith of The Monkees. Julian had recorded a demo featuring himself on guitar and piano and me doing percussion. Paul Speare recorded two amazing solos on the baritone saxaphone. Playing the bass guitar was our extra Special guest: 2-Tone legend Horace Panter!
