11/11/11 - Nigel Tufnel Day!

I've got a blog post entitled "11 Reasons Why This is Spinal Tap Still Rocks" posted over at the Hal Leonard Performing Arts Blog today to celebrate 11/11/11, or as the web is terming it, "Nigel Tufnel Day."

As I write in the piece:

"Today goes up to eleven. Or three elevens, really, if we’re being technical. But since today is 11/11/11, it seems an appropriate occasion to remember the production that made the idea of “going up to eleven” a famous (or infamous) catchphrase: 1984’s This is Spinal Tap.

Even twenty-seven years after release, the Rob Reiner comedy endures as one of the funniest ever made, and so below I enumerate the eleven reasons the film continues to “rock.”
Check out the eleven reasons here!

  1. Playing clubs in the early 90's, we were constantly sporting British accents and quoting from "Tap". If we had a dressing room, we'd ask if it was "bigger than the puppet's". and if we had to spend the night somewhere, we'd ask for the "King Leisure Suite". This film is an absolute classic.
