New Spinal Tap video

Tufnel rocks the National Geographic Channel stage

A new video has emerged on the National Geographic Channel website in which Spinal Tap guitarist Nigel Tufnel outlines his theory on the construction of Stonehenge.

The 1984 rockumentary This Is Spinal Tap saw the band utilise a miniature version of the stone circle onstage while performing their song of the same name.

In this video, Tufnel claims that the site was built by just one man, a “very strong man”, named Duncan. Frankly, we're sceptical, but then who are we to argue with one of the true pioneers of heavy rock music.
