Allen Klein has died at the age of 77. For a short time, he managed the business affairs of the Beatles just before they broke up.

In Toobworld, he was spoofed by the character of Ron Decline in the Rutles TV special "All You Need Is Cash". This "documentary" was Eric Idle's hybrid of the humor styles of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' and 'Saturday Night Live', and John Belushi was featured as Ron Decline.

Here's the introductory clip of Ron Decline. Say what you will about Klein, but he knew how to make an entrance......

In case you didn't recognize them, Ron Decline's bodyguards were played by Tom Davis and Senator-Elect Al Franken......
