Creator hinted at Spinal Tap return
2014 will mark the 30th anniversary of the release of This Is Spinal Tap, the mockumentary following hapless fictional band Spinal Tap. Could another project be on the way to celebrate?

Speaking with The Observer , Spinal Tap creator Christopher Guest hinted of a reunion. Guest played Nigel Tufnel, lead guitarist of Spinal Tap, in the cult film.

He said, "We get asked to do shows on a regular basis. But what I will say is that we're in the midst of talking about something for next year".

They have played Wembley and the Royal Albert Hall since the film was released, even the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 2009. Who knows whether that 'something' will be a show or another film, but we can't wait to turn it up to 11 again.
