Product description

You're about to get personal with Spinal Tap, one of music history's greatest and loudest heavy metal bands, in this Special Edition "rockumentary" of England's legendary group. Go behind the scenes for an intimate look at a band whose time has come and gone and come again. Through interviews, rare footage, and lots of music, including classic Tap tunes like "Big Bottom" and "Hell Hole," you'll get acquainted with lead guitarist David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), lead bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), and every drummer who ever lived and died for this renowned rock band. Be a part of the sights, sounds, and smells of this celebrated heavy metal phenomenon. It's an experience you'll never forget.

From Amazon.co.uk

The comedic genius of This Is Spinal Tap is confirmed by the fact that a majority of studio executives were utterly clueless about its brilliance. As a first-time director and cowriter, Rob Reiner must have felt simultaneously frustrated and elated, knowing that the obtuseness of movie executives was a clue to his debut project's potential greatness. Now, of course, the clarity of hindsight and the rarity of superior satire have turned This Is Spinal Tap into one of the funniest documentary spoofs of all time. Reiner and the members of "Tap" (Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Harry Shearer) couldn't have picked a better target for their satire, because heavy metal music in the early 1980s was already a borderline case of self-parody. From the bizarre, premature deaths of the band's drummers to the backstage squabbles over sexist cover art and meddling groupies, this movie scores about a hundred comedic bull's-eyes for lampooning every possible aspect of rock pomposity in the age of Kiss. It's a virtual bible of rock & roll irreverence, so accurate in its observations that it's become a tour-bus classic for real bands around the world. On the one-to-ten scale of satirical inspiration, This Is Spinal Tap is like the modified amplifiers that Christopher Guest so hilariously demonstrates: this one goes to 11. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
