Spinal Tap A to Zed

Joe BesserBesser, Joe "Mama": Tap’s largest member ever, Besser played drums during the band’s one-date tour of Japan to support the 1982 album "Smell the Glove" before disappearing with the equipment. Besser made a brief appearance at the end of "This is Spinal Tap" during scenes from the Kobe Hall concert. David: "We assume he either returned to the world of jazz or he died." (GW)
