Spinal Tap A to Zed

Beverly Hills: After leaving the band during the Lindbergh Air Force gig in Seattle—a dramatic scene Marty DiBergi captured on film for "This is Spinal Tap"—Nigel retired to the home of a friend who lives in this exclusive Los Angeles community. While there, he wrote songs, learned to play tennis and quit smoking. The friend was a famous actor who played a doctor on television, as Nigel explained to DiBergi in an interview that the director left on the cutting room floor.
