Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Stillwater's songs were written by Peter Frampton (who also had a small part in the film), Cameron Crowe and his wife Nancy Wilson of the rock band Heart, a fact indicated early in the credits although the music acknowledgments credit Russell Hammond and Stillwater as if they were real authors and performers.
  • The film is director Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical account of life as a young Rolling Stone reporter. The actual group that Crowe first toured with was The Allman Brothers Band. (Gregg Allman was the one who distrusted him and kept asking if he was a narc.) Crowe's real-life near-fatal plane crash happened while traveling with The Who. The character of Russell Hammond is based on Glenn Frey of Eagles.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Penny is flying away on the plane, the plane is far too close to the building (based on the Penny's POV shots.) If the plane were really this close its wings would be scraping the glass of the terminal building. Additionally, no plane would be accelerating to take-off speed on the taxi way.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): On the bus, when Sapphire tells William about his mother calling, she braces herself before she hits the wall.
