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'. 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.
