New York - (Rotters): Legendary 80s spoof band Spinal Tap are set to reinvigorate Al Gore's flagging determination to get as much attention as possible by reinventing himself as a global eco warrior whose date with destiny lies in the 2008 White House presidential eleciton.
The band has promised to make a 15 minute contribution to the Live Earth gig in July featuring their latest hit single Warmer than Hell.
But skeptical commentators have repeatedly warned that no amount of posturing outdoor rock and roll freebies can ever save any politician's ass after a career devoted to shredding the Justice Department's files on personal background information including disastrous family financial connections to KGB rent boy Armand Hammer RIP.
"Spinal Tap or Final Crap? That is the quesion," a Live Earth organiser said today. "Gore just needs a damned good lawyer not some gimmicky rock concert to cower behind."
