Fans of Spinal Tap have assembled details about the band based on fictional film, albums, concerts, and related promotional material, including a discography and a list of the band's former members.
In the late 60s, Spinal Tap was a psychedelic pop band,  and has also performed progressive rock ,  jazz fusion ,  funk  and reggae ,  but is best known as a heavy metal band.
Spinal Tap's fictional history includes a succession of drummers, all of whom are said to have died in strange circumstances: one in a "bizarre gardening accident"; another who "choked on vomit" a reference to the deaths of John Bonham , Bon Scott and Jimi Hendrix —but not his own vomit; and, two from " spontaneous human combustion " onstage.
Additionally, it is claimed that police described one of the deaths as a mystery "best left unsolved".
The band Spinal Tap first appeared in a video aired as part of a sketch comedy special called "The TV Show", a project spearheaded by Rob Reiner and Michael McKean.
The video was for the song "Rock 'N' Roll Nightmare", in a sequence that was intended as a spoof of The Midnight Special.
The Spinal Tap band members were at this point unnamed. McKean and Shearer had previously been members of The Credibility Gap , a comedy troupe that did both spoken word and musical comedy, and had released a mini rock opera and at least one musical 7" single.
Also in , Guest and McKean were members of Lenny and the Squigtones , a band that was fronted by characters from the hit television series Laverne and Shirley.
Guest, on guitar and clarinet, was credited as "Nigel Tufnel", the name he would eventually use as a member of Spinal Tap.
The appearance on "The TV Show" eventually led to the creation of a film, tracing a disastrous tour undertaken by the aging British metal band Spinal Tap.
Reiner hosted the film in the character of filmmaker "Marty DiBergi", while Guest, McKean and Shearer took on character names for the project, and further developed their Spinal Tap personas.
Respectively, Guest was guitarist "Nigel Tufnel"; McKean was vocalist "David St. Hubbins"; and Shearer was bassist "Derek Smalls". Also added to the group was David Kaff as keyboardist "Viv Savage" and R.

The character of Mick Shrimpton having died in the film, R. Parnell played his "twin brother" drummer Ric Shrimpton for these and later appearances.
Spinal Tap "reunited" in for Break Like the Wind , an album produced in part by T-Bone Burnett , an accomplished musician and record producer.
The album was accompanied by a promotional audition for a new drummer attended by Stephen Perkins of Jane's Addiction , Gina Schock of The Go-Go's , and Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac , who auditioned in a fireproof suit.
Despite the auditions, Parnell was retained as "Ric Shrimpton" and remained the band's drummer. Kaff did not return, and consequently the "reunited" band now consisted of Guest, McKean, Shearer and Parnell all in character and new keyboardist C.
Vanston under his own name. A promotional concert tour followed, which included an appearance at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert , where they performed "The Majesty of Rock", a song they dedicated to Freddie Mercury.

On July 1, , Tap crossed five time zones for three performances in St. John's , Newfoundland ; Barrie , Ontario; and Vancouver , British Columbia, for MuchMusic and Molson's Great Canadian Party.
For each performance of "Stonehenge", the miniature monument prop was delivered on stage in a courier envelope. During a long period of inactivity in the late s, Parnell dropped out of the group leaving Spinal Tap with no permanent drummer.
