SPINAL TAP: THE FORGOTTEN ORIGINS


The film THIS IS SPINAL TAP is legendary, but did you know that they first appeared five years before the film came out?  In 1979 Rob Reiner shot a pilot called The TV Show, and the cast included Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer. One of the skits was a parody of Wolfman Jack, and it featured the first ever appearance of Spinal Tap doing a really bad song called Rock and Roll Nightmare.  It's not a good song.  It's just not.  Here it is anyway.
