Spinal Tap’s co-creator Christopher Guest, who played guitarist Nigel Tufnel in the not-real band’s 1984 mock rock doc, ‘This Is Spinal Tap’, has said there’s a chance ST may do “something” next year.

Interviewed by The Guardian re his new BBC show, ‘Family Tree’, Guest said, when asked if a Tap reunion was a possibility: “We get asked to do shows on a regular basis. But what I will say is that we’re in the midst of talking about something for next year”.

Guest and his bandmates Michael McKean and Harry Shearer, by the way, were last heard playing live at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 2009.
