    Dauer: 1:19:04

    All "Spinal Tap"- related segments on LNwDL. Plus Harry Shearer's industrial film shown on the first Film Festival, featuring Michael McKean and Christopher Guest.
    Note: Harry Shearer appeared on the show eleven times, but "Spinal Tap" came up only twice, the second only in passing; both mentions are included here. I'll eventually put up a complete Harry Shearer/Dave collection.
    1. December 13, 1982. Paul Shaffer.
    2. February 16, 1983. Billy Crystal.
    3. December 26, 1983 (taped Dec. 12). Harry Shearer.
    4. February 2, 1984. Rob Reiner.
    5. March 20, 1984. Paul Shaffer.
    6. June 18, 1984. Paul Shaffer.
    7. November 13, 1984. Christopher Guest (SNL clip deleted).
    8. November 30, 1985. The Making of "You Wouldn't Believe Our World."
    9. May 19, 1989. Harry Shearer.
    10. March 30, 1990. Michael McKean.
    11. October 3, 1991. Michael McKean.
    12. March 27, 1992. Spinal Tap.
    13. January 8, 1993. Michael McKean.

I saw Spinal Tap in concert at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby, PA in the summer of 1992, on the "Break Like the Wind" tour. Those guys could play, I don't know why the puppet show got top billing.

This movie is infinitely quoteable. One of my favorites , they are at the zoo. They are spouting some fun facts about animals.. Nigel looks at David and says " in the wild, Baboons are primarily bread eaters. " the whole scene was amazing , but the set up and delivery of that line stuck with me. It was perfect ridiculousness.

I could be totally wrong ( being that he is such a wonderful actor) but I met Michael McKean in 1986 when he was preproduction 'doing a gig' for "Light of Day" and he was a genuinely nice man.

As a more or less middle-class white kid in the early '80s, I was very susceptible to wealth-worshipping advertisements. The "Berkshire Place" ad would have piqued my interest massively. Now it looks like a rather horrific place to sleep and spend your money xD

When watched together, Michael McKean's interviews tell an amusingly tragic story where first he's excited about his new projects coming up, then he reveals that they flopped, then he's salty that he didn't make much money on the Spinal Tap tour to make up for it, lol. I admire his candidness throughout. It seemed like Harry Shearer's short film got next to no reaction from the audience... for which I don't blame them... that was probably too niche for the general public. Thanks for including the Spinal Tap performance- the interview has been uploaded elsewhere, but I couldn't find the performance.

Paul would have been in the original “Blues Brothers” film but he was involved with Gilda Radner’s live show at the time. Apparently this made John Belushi quite upset and he kicked him out of the project. He did return to tour with them later though. And of course much later did **sigh** “Blues Brothers 2000”. Win a few, lose a few I guess.
