Vivian Stanshall

Vivian was along with Neil Innes the most prominent figure in Bonzo Dog Band (Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band) An interesting biography can be found here (wikipedia). His tribute page is here. As a connoisseur of Brit pop-culture, as I assume you are - you would be TOTALLY lost without some essential background information about Vivian and the Bonzos, as well as being a boring ignorant. So do yourself a favour - get enlightened! AND get even more than most, by seeing one of the Bonzos 40th anniversary-tour concerts!
(Vivian will not be attending, as he is indeed quite dead)

“Why can't I be different and unusual... like everyone else?” (Quote Stanshall)
