Spinal Tap is a 1980’s band unlike any other, for one key reason: it doesn’t exist. Born from the satirical film This is Spinal Tap, the band Spinal Tap has taken on a life of its own, in part a unique compliment to the witty insight of its creators. Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer embodied the fictitious members of Spinal Tap in the 1984 film, a film which successfully parodied such iconic bands as Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin. This is Spinal Tap chronicled ...Spinal Tap Bio Continue
