    Mock Metal Group Spinal Tap to Reunite

    http://music.msn.com/music/article.aspx?news=260003

    I don't know about all of you, but "This is Spinal Tap" is one me and my husband's favorite movies. Looks like MSN will be showing the concert on their site.

    Despite being a "mock" group, they had some catchy and entertaining songs.
    I got an encore song on Guitar Hero and was excited to play "tonight I'm gonna rock you tonight".
    I was laughing through most of it.

    I loved the movie as a teen. But who didn't recognize Michael McKean from Laverne and Shirley? A lot of people thought it was a REAL documentary. To test that, I got it for my teens last year and they watched it. After the credits rolled, I told them it was a fake movie and they both said, "That was a fake band?"

    Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer have made other movies together and can actually play well.

    When I used to play in a band with friends, we'd joke all the time to turn it up to 11...
