Spinal Tap A to Zed

Dose, The: New-wave/punk band which opened for Tap during a portion of 1982 U.S. tour. Before meeting The Dose, Ian joked that they might be Spanish. "Maybe there’s just two of them." The lead singer, Stellazine, would become intimate with David, Nigel, Derek and Viv—each of whom contacted herpes from her, explaining the two cold sores seen on David’s and Nigel’s lips in "This is Spinal Tap." Only Mick didn’t sleep with her, and he was later the lone band member to vote against dropping the opening act. During a scene cut by DiBergi, Jeanine is also shown during the first Japan gig of the ’82 tour with a herpes sore on her lower lip.
