** Many real rock-and-roll personalities are actual characters in the movie, or implied to be just off-screen. Lester Bangs drops these left and right. Penny Lane is a nod to Music/TheBeatles and is also is loosely based on a real person. At one point William is trying to interview Music/BlackSabbath. On a couple of different occasions, he encounters groupies chasing after DavidBowie, [[Music/LedZeppelin Robert Plant, or Jimmy Page]]. And Penny is sold to Humble Pie.
