Spinal Tap Fine Art Print
  • Spinal Tap Fine Art Print
The 1984 feature film This Is Spinal Tap, a mockumentary about fictional heavy metal outfit Spinal Tap, features Derek Smalls (played by Harry Shearer), David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), and Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest). Rob Reiner directed the film, which gave a detailed history of the band's trials and travails. Promotional photos of the band (such as this one) were not entirely a joke: Spinal Tap did, in fact, play shows in the years after the movie.
