Ricky Gervais received a very special gift for his 50th birthday — the Fender guitar used in This Is Spinal Tap.
Over the weekend, Gervais dined in celebration of his milestone with good friend Christoper Guest, who played musician Nigel Tufnel in the 1984 mockumentary about a rock band.
“Worked-out, then we went to my birthday dinner with the lovely Chris and (his wife) Jamie (Lee Curtis) Guest at Galvin at Windows restaurant (in London),” writes Gervais in his blog. “Some more lovely presents and the usual wonderful meal from one of the best restaurants in the world.
“But then something quite special happened. Chris gave me his Fender guitar from Spinal Tap. I was speechless. It was really too much.”
