They are known to be one of England's loudest bands who came up during the 1960s across the pond and playing psychedelic rock alongside British pioneers like Pink Floyd and The Who.
Audiences will remember their 1984 satirical documentary called "This is Spinal Tap," a doc of their landmark U.S. tour is the very embodiment of rock-and-roll.
The documentary followed three members of the (fictionalized) band "Spinal Tap" Harry Shearer as Derek Smalls, Michael McKean as David St. Hubbins and Christopher Guest as Nigel Tufnel.
Smalls (aka Shearer) famously called his Spinal Tap bandmates David and Nigel the visionaries of the group.
"Like many groups, we come together and then we fall apart. Unlike other groups, we don't tend to have big fights or throw things, we didn't have anything to throw," he said adding the group is like "a cube of sugar put in a saucer of warm coffee."
"We dissolve," he said.
The comedian and singer released a new solo album "Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)" last year.
What are his meditations?
