Spinal Tap to reunite

Ah, the wonderful band Spinal Tap is scheduled to reunite this summer for a concert at the Live Earth Festival!

Spinal Tap reunites for Live Earth

April 26, 2007
NEW YORK -- Spinal Tap is back, and this time the band wants to help save the world from global warming.

The mock heavy metal group immortalized in the 1984 mockumentary ''This Is Spinal Tap'' will reunite for a performance at Wembley Stadium in London as part of the Live Earth concerts scheduled worldwide for July 7.

The band's original members will be there: guitarist Nigel Tufnel (played by Christopher Guest), singer David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean) and bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer). Rob Reiner, who directed ''This Is Spinal Tap'' and played the fake documentarian Marty DeBergi in the film, will attend.

''They're not that environmentally conscious, but they've heard of global warming,'' Reiner said. Spinal Tap has reunited several times since the film, but not for years. The occasion called for a new single,''Warmer Than Hell.''

Reiner provided a peek at the lyrics: ''The devil went to Devon, it felt like the fourth degree/He said, 'Is it hot in here, or is it only me?' ''

Thanks L.

I picture Christopher Guest saying, "Red pistachio nut..."  I picture Harry Shearer doing Principal Skinner, and I always feel startled when I remember that Michael McKean is married to Annette O'Toole.  And I pciture Rob Reiner's mom Estelle saying, "I'll have what she's having."  :)
