Comedy rock act Spinal Tap are planning a comeback in 2014. Co-founder Christopher Guest, who performs as guitarist Nigel Tufnel, has revealed he and bandmates David St. Hubbins and Derek Smalls are "in the midst of talking about something for next year" in a new article in Britain's The Guardian. Guest admits he still can't believe the group he formed with pals Harry Shearer and Michael McKean three decades ago for the mockumentary This is... Spinal Tap has become a cult act around the globe, performing at the greatest venues, including the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury festival in England in 2009. He adds, "It was a fantastic show. There were 130,000 people there or something. Since the film 30 years ago we've gone on tour, playing Wembley, the Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall… It's weird but great. The fiction became real."
