Drummers quotes

(From the "This Is Spinal Tap" DVD booklet, "Drummer Necrology") Although the band arguably had 32 drummers during its history, these are the six that are mentioned by name: John "Stumpy" Pepys (1943-1969) Cause of death: Gardening accident.

Eric "Stumpy Joe" Childs (1945-1974) Cause of death: Choked on vomit, although it was never determined whose vomit it was.

Peter "James" Bond (1949-1977) Cause of death: Spontaneous combustion

Mick Shrimpton (1948-1982) Cause of death: On-stage explosion.

Joe "Mama" Besser (19??-1983) Cause of death: Missing, presumed dead, or playing jazz.

Richard "Ric" Shrimpton (1948-?) Cause of death: No one knows what happened to Ric. None of the band members thought to ask each other. We've also heard that he sold his dialysis machine for drugs, and we assumed he died.
