Tap are back...

Spinal Tap are back...A short film by Rob Reiner explaining why Messrs Tufnell, St Hubbins and Smalls had reformed Spinal Tap, was shown last night at New York's Tribeca film festival.

According to the film, Nigel Tufnell has been working as a farmhand raising miniature horses; David St Hubbins is a now hip-hop producer who runs his studio from a colonic irrigation clinic; and Derek Smalls has been in rehab for his internet addiction.

Spinal Tap will appear at the Wembley leg of Live Earth on 7 July alongside such reformed (and po faced) dinosaurs as the Police and Genesis"They're not that environmentally conscious" said Reiner"Nigel thought it was just because he was wearing too much clothing."

This is Spinal Tap is one of my favourite comedies so I am always glad when Shearer, MCKean and Baron Haden-Guest of Soling (or should that be Mr Jamie Curtis?) work together. .

I don't understand what you mean by "This is Spinal Tap is one of my favourite comedies..."

Surely, it's a documentary.

Isn't it?
