It's the day that literally goes to 11, so who better to recognize on 11-11-11 than Nigel Tufnel? Who's he, you ask? The (fake) guitarist for the (fake) band Spinal Tap, of course! On Nov. 11, Tufnel is being recognized by the film's fans around the world for his unique amplifier in the mockumentary 'This is Spinal Tap.' The 1984 movie, which spoofs the life of a fake rock band, has a scene where Nigel (played by Christopher Guest) shows off an amp with volume knobs that go to 11, instead of the standard 10. ("It's one louder, isn't it?") Out of that all-time scene, that Nigel Tufnel Day was born.
