Spinal Tap A to Zed

Brown, Tucker "Smitty": Hotel receptionist in Memphis who finds himself facing off with an angry Ian Faith over the band's room reservations during the 1982 U.S. tour. Mistakenly put band on seventh floor with one King Leisure suite instead of setting aside seven suites on one floor. His remark to Ian, "I'm just as God made me, sir," became a catch-phrase among circus performers but never spread further. Nigel would later claim that Brown knocked on his door at 4 a.m. wearing Japanese slippers and a mumu. "He said he had the wrong room. Yeah, right. I had to slam the door in his face." (DV)
