    RIP Tony.

    Ian and the whole crew were brilliant. One of those movies that changed how I see the world today.

    I wouldn't worry about it though, it's not a big college town.

    If you're only familiar with Tony's work in Spinal Tap...you're missing out on his great comedy in real National Lampoon comedy. Best parody of the Rolling Stone interview era John Lennon ever.

    His Lennon in Magical Misery Tour was fantastic. Great straight man.

    He played the ST role brilliantly, deadpan presentation of ridiculous lines.
