He was the drummer for the mockumentary Spinal Tap. I still get a  kick out of that flick almost 40 years later. Ric Parnell was actually a real drummer and pretty good drummer. I heard about his passing on Sirius XM the other day.

"The first question they asked was, 'What do you think about a movie that's going to tear your career apart?' I said, 'You should have made this movie about 10 years ago.' They then asked me what other bands I'd been in, and I said, 'Well, I was in a band called Atomic Rooster.' They looked at each other and said, 'Yep, that's it, you're our man.'
