Spinal Tap A to Zed

Woodstock: In early interviews, the members of Tap insisted the band had been invited to this famous festival, but that the letter had been lost in the mail. They were too busy to play, anyway. (DN) By 1984, however, Derek admitted they had not been invited—but laid the blame on the band’s British roots. "Woodstock Festival of Love, Peace and Yanks is what we called it."
