Synopsis: The companion to the funniest film ever made about rock bands.
Rob Reiner's hilarious "rockumentary" about an aging British heavy-metal group has reached legendary status since its release in 1984. Largely ad-libbed by lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), lead singer David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), and bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer)-as well as a succession of drummers whose careers were cut short by spontaneously combusting, drowning in somebody else's vomit, or other untimely deaths- This Is Spinal Tap chronicles the band's latest American tour in a cunning satire of rock and roll culture.
Now, just in time for the theatrical re-release of This is Spinal Tap, as well as the ensuing video and DVD release, comes The Official Companion, featuring:
Fully illustrated text
A complete transcript of the film (much of the film was ad-libbed, so an ordinary screenplay can lack entire scenes)
Never-before-seen stills from cut footage
A comprehensive A-to-Z Guide featuring everything you've ever wanted to know about This Is Spinal Tap
Don't miss the chance to see behind the scenes of one of the most riotous and memorable satires of our time!
