Spinal Tap A to Zed

Seattle: During its performance at the Lindbergh Air Force Base in 1982, Nigel stomped off stage and left the band. Tap would later credit their stop in Seattle with inspiring the grunge movement that included bands such as Pearl Jam. Derek: "Our next-to-last gig before our hiatus was in Seattle, and who is to know how many members of those [grunge] bands were in the audience. A good many, I think." (BPI) Nigel: "These are the children of Tap. Some of them may literally be the children of Tap. We are quite old, you know." (MG) Seattle was also the site of the release party for "Break Like the Wind" in 1992. (TS) See Beverly Hills; Hookstratten, Lt. Robert; Soundgarden.
