Legendary semi-fictional rockers Spinal Tap have recently been supporting a non-profit in Los Angeles that is bringing music tuition to under-served children in the area.

Working with local schools and hospitals, the Hollywood Rock Academy Foundation teaches children who would otherwise not have access to music instruction how to read music, and how to write, record and perform their own original music.

Comic actors Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer have performed in Spinal Tap since inventing the band (“one of England’s loudest bands”) for a 1978 TV comedy special, and the band gave a trademark tongue-in-cheek heavy metal performance at a fundraiser for the Foundation in mid-October.
