Sir Dirk McQuickly; OBE (born March 29, 1943) is an English singer, bassist, pianist and founding member of The Rutles. He was called "the cute Rutle" and was the only Rutle not to complain about Rutlemania.

He also had a popular career in the 1970s with Punk Floyd, and a solo career in the following years.

In 1972, Punk Floyd decided to go on a spontaneous tour of British primary schools. They were very quickly arrested for supplying small children with acid. Dirk was quoted as saying 'We saw lots of children and 5 of them grew up illegal'.

Dirk McQuickly toured with The Punk Floyd until the early 80s, before turning to a solo career. A short-lived friendship and collaboration with former child star/director Ron Howard soured after Howard bought the rights to all of The Rutles' movies, and in 2002, Dirk's troubles only worsened following his re-marriage to a headless mannequin.

In 2013, in his first appearance in 8 years, Dirk McQucikly bought out the surviving members of Spinal Tap for an encore of his show in Seattle's W.C. Fields.
