Trivia: Another Beatles parallel in the film: There's a scene where you see the band members play on stage and Mr. White is watching them (while moving his head along with the music). There's a famous picture of Brian Epstein (Beatles' mythological manager) doing the exact same thing on The Beatles' famous Shea Stadium concert.
Trivia: There are several Beatles parallels: The Beatles' first hit, "Please Please Me," was a speeded-up version of a slow ballad. On the Ed Sullivan show, a shot of John Lennon was accompanied by the caption, "Sorry Girls, He's Married." Also, lead singer Jimmy gets sick on the show as George Harrison did prior to their appearance.
