OMG, Jeff Beck IS Nigel Tufnel

I watched the 2008 documentary The Story of the Yardbirds on Amazon Prime. It’s pretty good, but what really amused me was the interview footage with Jeff Beck. I guess I’d never him interviewed before, because it was instantly apparent that his look (shag haircut, sleeveless t-shirts, bulbous red nose) and accent were so obviously channelled by Christopher Guest into Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel. Check it out. Hell, you can just look at the preview frames to see what I’m talking about. 

By the way, if you’ve been interested in trying it out—and for me it’s been worth it for the instant video selection alone—use this link to get a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime. You’ll be helping support good ol’ Oblogatory when you do. Thanks.
