All you've gotta do is call
Thanks to the wonder of the trans Atlantic phone line, the estimable Happy Nat from the excellent Beatles Rarity website interviewed author Nick Churchill yesterday. You can hear their conversation in full right here. Nat has also sent the interview to Fab4Radio.com to be streamed as part of his regular contribution.
In case you're wondering, Happy Nat takes his name from a character played by actor Nat Jackley, the Rubber Man on the Magical Mystery Tour bus (pictured).
'There was a dream scene from the MMT film that has him by the seaside with one or two pretty young ladies in bikinis,' explains Nat. 'The scene was deleted though due to time constraints, but can still be seen in the MMT comic strip booklet packaged with the LP and British double EP. Originally Nat was a pantomime comic who had a very cool rubber-neck dance as his trademark. So there you go... a dirty old man with a rubber neck. My hero!'
