Corrected entry: During 'Big Bottom', not only are all three band members playing bass guitars, but Derek is playing double necked bass. This is a parody of Jimmy Page's double necked Gibson SG (which he used on Stairway To Heaven), with one neck having six strings with the other having 12. Both of Derek's bass necks have four strings, which defies the point of a double necked guitar.
Corrected entry: When Nigel reappears at the gig at the end where he is invited back on stage, he walks in moments before the band go onstage. The stage is already set and the road crew are unlikely to set up and check equipment that won't be used. So, why is Nigel's custom Les Paul and wireless out on stage when he walks on? The band wern't expecting him back and David had already said they wouldn't be working together again.
Corrected entry: When the group is playing "Big Bottom" David St. Hubbins is play Derek Small's Bass from the previous performance.(it is white with glitter strips on it) Then the Guitar changes into a regular 6 string guitar. But that's just nit picking isn't it?
Nigel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Martin: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Martin: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Martin: I don't know.
Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Martin: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel: Elevn. Exactly. One louder.
Martin: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel: These go to eleven.
