Spinal Tap, one of England's loudest bands, is chronicled by film director Marty DiBergi on what proves to be a fateful tour.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
Hello; my name is Marty DiBergi. I'm a filmmaker. I make a lot of commercials. That little dog that chases the covered wagon underneath the sink? That was mine. In 1966, I went down to Greenwich Village, New York City to a rock club called Electric ...
It may be an intentional fiction/obfuscation, but just after a shot showing the band as landing in Seattle, they perform at "Lindberg Air Force Base" due to a gig at the civic arena falling through. There is no such Air Force base. The only Air Force base in the Seattle area would be McChord, now part of Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Rob Reiner interviews all the members of the band.
