Spinal Tap A to Zed

Pomona, California: In 1986, David and Jeanine retired to this foothills community 30 minutes outside of Los Angeles, buying a farm called Shagwallow. While she ran the family businesses, David from 1988 on taught soccer for the Parks Department and produced local groups such as glam rockers Diaperload (later Lamé, then Bumdummy) and the garage band trio Meconium. Before Tap decided to regroup for "Break Like the Wind" in 1992, David thought he had rock ’n roll out of his blood. He was rock ’n roll wrong. (GW)
