Overview… lead guitarist of the world-famous rock band, Spinal Tap. Well, maybe “marginally famous” is more accurate these days. Nigel may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but he can rock’n roll with the finest of them. He’s especially proud of his rare guitar collection – including his six-string Fender Bass, not to be seen, touched or even pointed at in order to keep it in mint condition. And who can forget his special Marshall amplifier, on which all the buttons go up to 11?
Personality… dim-witted and slack-jawed, but well-meaning. Nigel cares about the band like his life depends on it. So when he perceives it as being threatened – by the lead singer David St. Hubbins’ pseudo-spiritualist girlfriend, Jeanine – he takes it pretty seriously.
